WHAT’S THE EPSOM ROTARY CLUB ALL ABOUT
Posted by Kat Heath on 27 Jan 2020
The Epsom Rotary is a valuable resource within the community which dedicate their time organising fundraising events to raise money for local and international charities. The team of local volunteers not only fundraise but also participate helping local organisations physically too.
Last year alone Epsom Rotary raised an impressive £15’000 for local charities.
Examples of how the Epsom Rotary have helped internationally include one Epsom Rotarian, Ruth Markus setting up a charity called AMECA which are committed to raising money to help deliver a healthcare system and provide healthcare training and education within Sub-Saharan African countries.
The Epsom Rotary are arranging an activity programme to help support and raise funds for AMECA and all the much needed work they do which has included building a primary healthcare unit and maternity unit in Chilaweni.
The Rotary also help raise money for End Polio Now. This has been an ongoing project for the Rotary throughout 30 years and are proudly part of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative alongside global charities such as UNICEF.
Epsom Rotary are also committed to supporting local charities and organisations including The Old Moat, which is run by The Richmond Fellowship, who provide work and formal training for those suffering from mental health problems. This year Epsom Rotary members will be helping to restore the walled garden at the Old Moat, once restored the walled garden will be used for money raising events and rented out to local businesses and organisations.
Other local charities which are supported by the Rotary include:
Epsom Riding For The Disabled & My Time For Young Carers.
Both are causes in need of consistent support and are valuable to those in our local community that use them.
