.....Service to the local community

Community Service is the Club's link with the local community. Emphasis is placed on links within the immediate Chislehurst area, where substantial efforts and contributions are made to help local charities and to undertake projects to help those in need.

YOUTH OPPORTUNITIES

CRISP (Chislehurst Rotary in Schools Project)

Four or five local primary schools will participate in our CRISP event in March 2017. The children join together to run workshops, perform on stage and have a related food hall  ( the most popular part of it for the children).  All in all a lot of fun and social contact.

This was a new venture and an extremely successful one. Several schools will come together for a morning of music and acting in front of family members.
