Welcome to F&D Rotary
by Mike Gay, Andy Fisher & Phil Simon

Fishponds & Downend Rotary is a small (but perfectly formed), robust, friendly and very sociable club. We are dedicated to raising money for charity and good causes, which we achieve in various ways, by fundraising at events, street collections and by having a presence at public events like fetes and shows.

Our current President is Andy Fisher who has chonen to name our main beneficiary this year as Young Carers a charity based at the Carers Support Centre in Fishponds.  We will be running a number of fundraising events this year including our Christmas collection and Easter chocolate bunnies for this charity, as well as fund-raisers for Rotary Foundation, Rotary ShelterBox and other worthy causes.
