We run a number of charity events each year for good causes.
Each year our club president chooses a charity on which to focus our efforts. This year Ganesh has chosen Wheel Power as the President's Charity, as their work to get disabled people active in sport chimes with his own belief in the transformative power of physical activity.

We run events like quiz nights, race nights and barn dances to raise funds for such local charities, allowing us and our guests to have some fun whilst doing some good. Our most recent event was a Barn Dance on 31 March. Keep an eye on our homepage for our recent and upcoming events.
We also run an annual Golf Day at the Woburn Golf Club, which raises a huge amount specifically for the Rotary International fight to eradicate polio from the world.
Of course we mustn't forget the Extra Mile Cycle Challenge. This is a 500 mile relay for teams of 4 over two days in September through beautiful countryside on the continent. Organised in conjunction with Bedford Park Rotary Club, this event has raised around £1m over 10 years or so. Find out more at http://www.extra-mile.org.uk
