Please contact us if you would like to come and speak to the club about your work for local and international charities. We have a guest speaker about once a month and would welcome your input.
Or, if you would like to get involved (whilst having fun and making friends) please get in touch. Some of our annual events include pumpkin carving, Senior Citizens tea party, a fantastic Kids Day Out in Herm for children of Les Rondins school... plus great fundraising evenings such as our popular annual Race Meeting, wine tastings, barn dances and balls.
Yours in Rotary,
The friendly people of Rotary Guernesiais
New 2017-2018 fundraising
|The Guernsey Overseas Aid Commission (the Commission) has pledged to match fund the fundraising efforts by the Rotary Club of Guernsey & Rotary Guernesiais for the historic effort to eradicate only the second disease in human history, polio.
In reaching its decision to partner with the Rotary in Guernsey, the Commission noted that they had already raised over Â£66,000 since 2006.
The fundraising agreement will see the Commission match funding every pound raised by the island’s two Rotary clubs up to an overall total of Â£40,000 thus doubling the money they raise to Â£80,000. As the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has already agreed to match fund the money raised by Rotary on the basis of Â£2 for every Â£1 raised, up to an additional Â£160,000 will be added to the money raised here in Guernsey.
In other words, the fundraising by the Rotary clubs in Guernsey and the Commission’s pledge of Â£40,000 could generate a total of up to Â£240,000 in support of Rotary’s work to end the paralyzing disease.
