When Disaster Strikes - Our Fundraising Projects
When disaster strikes our members are among the first to organise local street collections to raise funds to help those affected. Our efforts raised over Â£19 000 after the Tsunami, and over Â£5 000 following the local explosion at the oil storage depot.details
We are that close - End Polio Now!
Polio cripples thousand of children around the world. With your help we can END POLIO NOW!details
Use your (old) tools - Tools Collection for Africa
Each year we arrange to collect unwanted tools from local people. The tools are then sent for refurbishment before being distributed in needy areas in Africa.details
Teams of three are challenged to speak in public. Professional judges assess the skill of the teams. In 2016, Senior Team from John F Kennedy School and Intermediate Team from Astley Cooper School have reached the District Finals.details
We're for Communities
The reason we say this is because we often get asked "What does Rotary do?" We are a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, who action local, national and international projects. The Rotary movement is big, with 34,282 clubs and over 1.2 million members worldwide. As you can imagine there are a lot of different projects going on.
Our Hemel Hempstead Club is involved in stroke awareness and handtool collections, in tech tournaments for the young and Christmas carol concerts for the elderly. We solve murder mysteries over lunch just for fun and invite to frugal suppers to raise awareness of the homeless.
2016 saw the arrival of our Santa Sleigh, which we intend to make available to a range of community groups. For more detail, click here.
Do you want to know more about what we do? Do come along. Find out about membership and our Friends for Rotary scheme. There are many ways in our club you can get involved to be for your community.
