THE YOUNG CARER'S FESTIVAL

Another fantastic event with over 1500 young carers at the festival. We took over £4000 in our coffee and burger shop over the weekend, being open from 6.00am to midnight. We will be there again next year,giving our help and service for free together with friends and Rotarians for other Rotary Clubs. Thanks to all those helpers for their time and support.



The Coffee Bar

The Coffee Shop was manned by Rotarians and friends as usual.

WE HAVE PURCHASED 4 DEFIBRILLATORS

Membership - What could be in it for you
Fun, friendship and satisfaction that you have helped your community. It's a great organisation to join and provides you with a group of instant ethical friends and international connections. It widens your sphere of knowledge and integrates you further into your local community.
Joining Rotary opens up a whole new aspect to your life and aids development. The more cautious will be encouraged and you can quickly gain confidence to lead a project, make presentations and perform public speaking that you may have thought wre things you weren't capable of doing.
There are Rotary Clubs in a town or village near you who welcome new members, who through their skills or vocation can help make their community a better place in which to live. Clubs may meet at breakfast time, lunch time or in the evening. Because we all have busy lives, members go along when they can.

Rotary has the "Greatest Charity in the World", the Rotary Foundation, with 1.2 million members of staff in 33,000 Rotary Clubs througout 200 countries, all working as volunteers for free. It spends $51 million dollars A DAY on communities throghout the world.
