Recent stuff and upcoming stuff
Interested in ROTARACT in READING?
We have created a new category of membership due to increased demand from busy people. You can now become a 'Monthly Member' committing to one breakfast meeting each month (we hope you will also do some social or service activity each month as well) at £23 per month. This includes the cost of your breakfast and your national affiliation fee. This is a form of Full Rotary Membership. Interested? then give Greg a ring on 07850 791324.

Recent things we've done
We have 6 new members who have joined in recent months (May -July). Skittles at the Gardeners Arms in July with our programme getting busier as Autumn approaches.
We support a child's education in Zimbabwe working with 'Creating Better Futures' a charity mamanged by Matins Member Dorothy Dix. See their website here.
In the past 12 months we have supported Creating Better Futures through a grant for a 'rainwater harvesting' system at a school in Zimbabwe. We have also given £1000 to Practical Action for a project in Nepal - we raised the money at a curry lunch.
Our member Dr Jim McWhirter is leading projects in Uganda to help with their maternity hospitals - more to follow
