The Rotary Club of Chislehurst are a group of people of all different ages and backgrounds, that enjoy putting something back into the community. Membership is open to everyone. We volunteer our skills, time and resources, to make a positive difference to the lives of others. Our meetings are held weekly at The Chislehurst Golf Club where we enjoy a meal and plan our activities. We are often joined by a guest speaker.
We raise funds for local good causes, placing them right at the heart of the local community. Our projects include organising and supervising community events, such as the Chislehurst Fireworks, the Summer Fair and Christmas (Santa) collections.
We also promote the achievements of young people, helping those who are disadvantaged or disabled, co-ordinating educational programmes and working in partnership with local businesses and charities.
Some of the many Charities we support are:
- St Christopher’s Hospice
- Child Aid
- Marjorie McClure
- The Maypole Project
- Childreach International
- Young Epilepsy
- Petts Wood Playgroup
- MS Society
- Guys & St Thomas Cancer Centre
Many people express a desire to help within the community without joining Rotary. Why not become a “Friend of Rotary” and be one of our many volunteers that helps with our community events throughout the year. You will be kept up to date on what we are doing as a Club and are more than welcome to attend our social events. There are no financial commitments and you can help us out whenever you have the time. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and put something back into your community.
The Rotary Club of Chislehurst also support many international projects and respond to disasters both at home and abroad. We continue to support Rotary International’s “Polio Plus Campaign” for the eradication of polio throughout the world.
The Club also has a variety of social events throughout the year.
