Welcome To Farnborough Rotary Club

 

Farnborough Rotary Club organises a number of local highlights such as the Donkey Derby on the late May Bank Holiday, Music in the Park every other year in July, and the Christmas float collections around the streets of Farnborough and in local shopping centres every December.

Whilst we are known for these high-profile events, we also raise money or donate from our own funds to support ‘Shelterbox’ and other aid charities helping with disaster relief in all parts of the world.  As a part of the worldwide Rotary International organisation we have contributed to the ‘End Polio Now’ campaign that has almost eradicated polio.  On top of all this, we have many activities that are never publicised, including some great social occasions.

The backgrounds of the men and women in our club are many and varied; we have a jeweller, an estate agent, sales and marketing professionals, a pharmaceutical dispenser, a union official, a retired GP and a few local councillors amongst our 50+ members.  In fact, we are a real mix of personalities. 

If you feel you would like to get involved and give back something to our local community, then please get in touch.  We are always looking for people with energy, enthusiasm and a little time on their hands and we would be delighted if you could join us at the Holiday Inn for one of our Thursday lunch meetings to see us in action and meet the members.  For further details, please contact Sam ParkinEmail or call  07835 074421
