FOR POLIO DAY
23 FEBRUARY 2018
Pupils from Broadmead Primary School
helped Croydon Club celebrate
Member Ian Wesson spoke to the Club on 30 January 2018 about this popular activity.details
The Rotary Club of Croydon was founded in 1921 and for over 90 years has been a source of enjoyment to its members and service to the local community.
We currently have over 40 members, both men and women, with a wide mix of social and vocational interests.
We meet every Tuesday for lunch at the Masonic Halls in Croydon (see bottom of screen for location map), where we are able to enjoy a meal and share lively conversations. We often have guest speakers and occasionally our meetings are devoted to discussing the business of the Club and planning our community and International fundraising activities.
In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold social and fundraising events, including theatre trips, and partake in the local Rotary community sporting activities.
View the WHAT WE DO section for more information about the activities of the Rotary Club of Croydon, or download our current Information Leaflet.
The 2017 to 2018 year so far…
Our fundraising events to support both our President's Charity, the Croydon Hearing Resource Centre, and the End Polio Now Campaign, have been hugely successful. Our next major fundraising event for our Charity is the Annual Charity Golf Day on Tuesday 24 April 2018. Details of which will be available shortly.
These events have led to two long-term partnerships:
Following the help of pupils from Broadmead Primary School to plant 2500 crocus bulbs for the End Polio Now Campaign, Croydon Club donated to them a large number of bulbs to plant and nurture within their own grounds. This gave pupils an opportunity to learn about the history of polio throughout the world, dovetailing into various stems of their curriculum, and how Rotary has been working since 1985 to help eradicate this disease. The Rotary Club of Croydon looks forward to arranging further joint projects in the future. (Click here for full details of the Crocus Planting Day.)
In August 2017, the Croydon Night of Dance organisers said that in future they wished to partner with the Rotary Club of Croydon so that any monies raised would go to the local charities that we support. They have also asked that each new Club President becomes a joint Patron of the Croydon Night of Dance.
Visit Croydon Rotary Club to meet and hear more about how Rotarians and the Rotary International organisation are "making a difference" locally and internationally.
