WHAT WE DO.

We support Communities.

We raise funds, and then give our time and our money to help others, principally in the local Community, but also nationally and internationally through other Rotary Clubs around the world.

 

FUNDRAISING. 

Our main fund raising event each year is a Dragon Boat Race, which has raised over £350,000.00 over the last 11 years. 75% of the money raised goes to a multitude of Charities chosen by each team, and the balance goes into our Rotary Charity Account for distribution to other local Charities supported regularly by Huddersfield Rotary Club. Other fundraising events include Silent Auctions, Frugal Meals, International Suppers etc.Dragonboat

We have recently contributed to the cost of the refurbishment of two Community Centres in Huddersfield.

We are supporting a ‘clean-up’ of Lockwood Station.

We regularly give our time to

  1. Plant crocuses in Greenhead Park and other locations, in support of Rotary’s project to eliminate Polio worldwide.

We have recently given donations to, amongst others, the following local Charities/organisations:

Kids Out

Wharfeside Trust

Send a Cow

Mary’s Meals

Greenfield Family Centre

And on a wider arena, we have sent funds to:

Rotary Shelter Boxes,  Aquabox and Disaster Aid to be used in international disasters (earthquakes, tsunamis etc)

Support the Rotary International campaign to eliminate polio worldwide (Crocuses for Polio).

An appeal from a local husband and wife to provide clean water and electricity to an Ethiopian village.

WE REALLY ARE FOR COMMUNITIES  – AND WE GET SATISFACTION FROM HELPING OTHERS, AT THE SAME TIME ENJOYING THE FELLOWSHIP WE GET FROM BEING A ROTARIAN.
