Helivan Handover - Hurray!

Helivan Handover - Hurray! The Rotary in London Helivan was handed over on 23 June 2017, as the Rotary Year was coming to a close. After a year of hard work fundraising, with Past District Governor Trevor Johnson acting as Project Manager, the London District Governor Helen Antoniou had the privilege of handing over the 'Helivan' purchased for London's Air Ambulance (LAA) with funds raised by the Rotary Clubs in London. In the photo are (left to right) Sara Jane Woods - LAA Head of Community Fundraising and Outreach, Mark Wingett - Actor and TV Star, Mark Davies - LAA Director of Development, District Governor Helen Antoniou, and Doctor Michael Kim wearing his LAA uniform. District Governor Helen said, "The total funds raised of 38,000 for this high profile project is a wonderful achievement, and demonstrates just how effective Rotary is in the 21st Century for our capital city. After this, we will continue to move forward to a bright future for the Rotary Clubs in London". The Helivan will be used to promote the work of London's Air Ambulance, and to encourage children and students to move towards a career in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM subjects). At the same time it will promote all the Rotary Clubs in London and their work in the community.  ... | Read more about Helivan Handover - Hurray! | Added 3 weeks ago

Grenfell Tower Disaster

Normally we include a photo with our entries, but on this occasion a photo seems inappropriate. Firstly, we offer a sincere "thank you" to those who have offered support after the Grenfell Tower Fire disaster on 14 June 2017. This is a dreadful tragedy that has devastated so many families, and the scars will take many years to heal. The response from Rotarians and others across Great Britain and Ireland wanting to help has been truly inspirational and shows how strongly we support our communities. Rotary in London (District 1130) is coordinating Rotary's response locally. If you would like to contribute funds to help support victims and their families you can do so in the following ways: A) Make out a cheque payable to "Rotary Charity Fund (D-1130)" and send it to: Rotary Charity Fund (D-1130) 14 Briar Road Harrow HA3 0DR England or B) Arrange a bank transfer to: Sort Code: 30-90-39 Account Number: 01368570 Account Name: Rotary Charity Fund (D-1130) Please add "RGF" in the reference. If you are a Rotary Club or District, please add that to the reference as well. The funds will be applied to programmes that will be long lasting in the community, rather than attempting to provide an immediate response.... | Read more about Grenfell Tower Disaster | Added 4 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.
