Seeing the Trees and the Forest

Seeing the Trees and the Forest Members of several Rotary Clubs in North London got together near Sandridge in Hertfordshire on 8 March 2018 to help out with a project to plant a new forest on what had been agricultural land. They were there to plant broad leaf deciduous trees - mainly oak and cherry. Trees play an enormously important part in our environment, and the President of Rotary International, Ian H S Riseley has called on all Rotarians around the world to plant at least one tree each before 30 June 2018. As can be seen below, many hundreds of trees were planted on the day - one of several when working parties for all sorts of voluntary organisations help out. The day was very windy, and there was both sun and rain, but all the Rotarians present had a good time. Thanks go to the volunteers of Heartwood Forest, for the hot tea and coffee served to the planters. ... | Read more about Seeing the Trees and the Forest | Added 2 weeks ago

Essex Couple Win National Rotary Award

Essex Couple Win National Rotary Award Pauline Craven and Alan Hilliar of Felsted Aid for Deprived Children have won a National Rotary Community Champion Award. The award recognises their work providing aid to a treatment centre in Ukraine coping with 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation consequences of the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in 1986. The couple met in 2000 when both were part of a convoy taking aid to the Revival Centre in Chernihiv, the nearest city to Chernobyl, and in 2003 they formed their own Registered Charity - "Felsted Aid for Deprived Children". Since then, the couple have been organising and participating in the three or four convoys a year taking toiletries, clothing, shoes and cleaning materials to Ukraine. The Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland Community Champion Award is a highly prestigious award, and all the Rotarians in London are agreed that Pauline and Alan are very worthy recipients.... | Read more about Essex Couple Win National Rotary Award | Added 3 weeks 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.
