Shanklin Rotary Club was formed on the 1st July 1927. Next year will be our 90th Anniversary. There are currently 22 members, 3 of which are ladies. The Club meets every Wednesday evening at Shanklin Conservative Club for dinner and fellowship. Guest speakers are invited to attend some meetings throughout the year, which prove to be informative and interesting.
Every 2 months, the Club has partners' evenings and many social events are organised throughout the year. Such events include' for example, indoor bowling with dinner afterwards, theatre trips, archery, croquet and petanque. Our Club is twinned with Amboise Rotary Club in France and annual exchange visits are great fun!
This year, 2016, Shanklin Rotary Club has donated over Â£37,000 to local charities and International causes. Our main fundraising activity is the Annual Sale of recycled goods kindly donated by the public. This is held each January within the Shanklin area. The proceeds are given to mainly local charities, and to provide assistance with International disasters. The Club has supported the local hospice by providing marshals for Walk The Wight, Barton Manor and the Sweetcorn Fayre. In addition, we organised the Dash & Splash fun run to raise funds for our local Inshore Lifeboat. Each year a great day out at Robin Hill Adventure Park is organised by the Club, for more than 100 children with special needs from schools on the Island. We also support the Shanklin Carnival and Regatta.
If you are a visiting Rotarian or just a member of the public possibly interested in joining Rotary, you will be made welcome at any of our meetings. Please contact Steve Knight (Club President) on 07909 546845.
