This is now a busy time in our Rotary calendar with a number of activities planned before Easter. We are always seeking help with our community work and there are a number of ways in which individuals can help. During April we will be holding a recruitment information evening for those interested in finding out more about Rotary and how to volunteer. We are helping with a number of community projects, 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 Copmanthorpe next month. Details will be published soon.
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, York Ainsty has supported one of the Rotary Club of Muenster St Mauritz international charities in Calcutta.
Rotary is keen to support youth and this month our District held a ‘Youth Speaks’ (public speaking) competition in Poppleton Road Primary School and the York Clubs join forces to run a schools technology tournament (in the Railway Museum) on Tuesday 18th March.
Rotary has always responded to disasters wherever they occur, but with the devastating flooding in many parts of the south, Rotary has responded and the three York clubs have all sent contributions to the flood relief appeal.
