About our International activities.
Our International committee is responsible for organising our links internationally and in particular for fundraising for charitable work outside the UK.
Examples of our recent activities are:
We organised a bucket collection very rapidly after typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines and were able to raise money and send it off quickly.
We raised a substantial sum to support the Rotary campaign to eliminate polio world-wide.
We are supporting a charity which supplies anti-malaria nets for Tanzania.
We support a charity which gives emergency relief after international disasters (Shelterbox).
We have 40-year-old link to a French Rotary club in Chatellerault which is a good example of the strength of Rotary's international links. Each year we organise a trip either to France or the UK and we have a Student Bursary Project with our twin club, for exchange of students to improve their language skills.
We also support a medical student in South Africa who would otherwise not have the funds to go to university.
