Foundation Team

Rotaries own charity raising funds for eradication of Polio across the world and supporting local and international educational needs

Rotary Foundation Team

Team Leader:  Rotarian Bernard Hawes

From this year onwards, the International and Foundation Teams will operate as two separate teams. We prefer now to use the term 'Team' instead of 'Committee' to reflect our way of working in a co-operative and informal way.

Foundation will benefit from the experience of long serving and experienced Rotarians to support the work of Rotary International, one of the largest charities in the world.

Principal Projects are:

  • The eradication of Polo worldwide. Over the last 30 years Rotary have had spectacular results in this area.  Newmarket Foundation Team on an annual basis organises one fundraising project to support this work.  This year we will be organising a sponsored walk, come and join us.
  • The exchange of International Rotary Scholars, support them during their period of study at Universities in East Anglia.
  • Supporting students who are studying at Bradford University who are on Rotary Peace and Conflict Resolution Fellowship courses
