We're for Communities!
28th April: Meeting at Wilberforce Trust, Huntington Road, York, 6.30pm
On Wednesday 7th May we will be holding an information evening for those interested in finding out more about Rotary and how to volunteer. This will be held at the Mercure Fairfield Manor Hotel at 7.00pm. Refreshments and coffee will be available. To book a place email:
As many already know we are helping with a number of community projects, e.g. with Cubs/Scouts in Copmanthorpe, the Wilberforce Trust, “Days for Girls” kits for overseas aid (Issy Sanderson’s group in Poppleton), and “Specsort” hopefully starting a new team of volunteers in Poppleton and Copmanthorpe during April and May. 'Specsort' has been well publicised in the current issue of the national magazine, "Rotary Today".
A Group of club members will be travelling to our partner club in Muenster on 30th April for an exchange visit, staying with Rotary friends. During this Rotary year, the club has supported one of the Rotary Club of Muenster St Mauritz international charities in Calcutta.
Rotary is keen to support youth and recently our District held a ‘Youth Speaks’ (public speaking) competition in Poppleton Road Primary School and the York Clubs joined forces to run the schools technology tournament which was held on Tuesday 18th March in the National Railway Museum.
The York Rotary Youth Challenge
The three York Rotary Clubs have discussed their intentions to organise, administer and finance a 3 day 2 night personal development course at Snowball Plantation, Stockton on the Forest for 32 disadvantaged young people in early August 2014. The course would contain a mix of physical and mental challenges to be developed and managed by Awesome Adventure, the professional company which has run the very successful District 1040 RYLA leadership courses at Hebden Bridge for many years. The activities are conducted by a team of experienced professional instructors supported by Rotarian Mentors.
The candidates will be nominated by the leaders at Door 84, Jack Raine Foundation and York Schools Pastoral Care Teachers, identifying youngsters who would benefit.
