COMMUNITY SERVICE & VOCATIONAL
Community Service is the caring side of Rotary in the local community.
We help organizations and, on occasions, individuals, by providing financial assistance and (wo)manpower.
A good example of financial help is the donation of £10,000 to Thornton House School to help build a "multi-sensory room" to assist children who have physical and sensory difficulties.
The non-financial activities includes our Christmas Parcels for the elderly and needy, kid's outings and boat trips.
Rotary does make a difference in the community and puts into practice the Rotary motto:-
"SERVICE ABOVE SELF"
Membership of Rotary is vocationally based. A Rotary Club's membership consists of one or two representatives from different types of business or profession. Thus each member brings a varied and personal experience to the Club. Vocational Service draws this experience together and looks for how it may be used to support the objects of Rotary.
