Polio Planting Programme

Polio Planting Programme Many Rotarians from our District and further afield, described by the London Live Freeview TV Channel as an "army of volunteers", assembled at the Benugo Cafe in Regents Park, Central London, before planting our 'thousands' of crocus corms on Friday 9 December 2016. As well as members of our District, we had Ade Adepitan, Konnie Huq, Julia Roberts and Anne Wafula-Strike who are all Rotary International Polio Eradication Ambassadors. Stefan Levy of London Live was also on the scene interviewing the celebrities for the live broadcast. With Judith Diment, the Rotary International Polio Task Force Advocacy leader lending important support to the event, as well as RIBI President Eve Conway - complete with her teddy bear - this was significant exposure of our work in the media. And there was even more good news when we learned that there had been no new cases of polio recorded in the world that week, meaning that the total stayed at 34 for the year to date.... | Read more about Polio Planting Programme | Added 1 month ago

Adventure to Chickenshed

Adventure to Chickenshed Rotarians were granted access to a "Rotary Performance" of Adventure to Oz at the Chickenshed Theatre, Southgate, on Thursday 8 December 2016, organised by the Rotary Club of Golders Green. The Chickenshed Theatre is a theatrical group open to all, regardless of any disability, that puts on shows at their theatre in Southgate, and occasionally further afield. Pictured above with our District Governor Helen are Scarecrow, Dame Margolet and Patchwork Girl, some of the key characters taking the story through the next episode after the famous Hollywood film made of L Frank Baum's story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The production was enormously enjoyed by a full house of Rotarians, and would not have been one jot out of place on the West End Stage in London. Well done Chickenshed - we all wonder what delights we will have next year!... | Read more about Adventure to Chickenshed | Added 1 month ago

What is Rotary?

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, the main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
