RYLA at Castleton is for young people aged between 15 and 17 years old ( ie. not yet 18) as a leadership training course, where they take part in challenges throughout the 4 days.
They are split into teams and pick a team leader , very much like the apprentice programme but no one gets fired !!. They then complete the task and afterwards there is a debrief about; how did the team leader do, would you have lead the team differently, etc.
In February 2020 we had 26 boys and girls booked onto the course but only 23 actually turned up on the day and then one went home on the Sunday so only 22 actually completed the course, but it was still a huge success and great value at £150.00 per person for 4 days.
We have received some great feedback from the young people and hopefully they will have now been to their ‘sponsoring’ clubs to give a talk and show some of the pictures taken during the tasks. Please have a look at the film below.
The course will be run again in 2021 from 13th to 16th February.
The Centre is owned and operated by The Sheffield Rotary Charity with the management team made up from members of the Rotary Club of Sheffield.

On Friday 20th May 2016, Community Save a Life, in conjunction with Bolsover District Council, achieved a world record by having 1795 people trained at once. The event took place in the Proact Stadium in Chesterfield and was adjudicated by Guinness World Records. The record attempt was made to promote first aid skills amongst the local community.
The citation from Guinness reads “The largest first aid lesson was achieved by Bolsover District Council and the Community Save a Life Scheme (both UK) at the Proact Stadium, Chesterfield, UK on 2o May 2016“
The event was supported by the British Heart Foundation and local Inner Wheel and Rotary Clubs
Music In The Gardens, started as a small idea organised by the Rotary Club of Sheffield which was to put on a small, live music concert in the Botanical Gardens to raise funds for local charities. Originally, Jazz in the Gardens was a one day, low key event. Since then, driven by customer demand (and certain economies of scale), Music in the Gardens has grown into an event recognised not only within Sheffield but now nationally as a special series of music concerts in the entertainments calendar.
So what is special about Music in the Gardens? It is four evenings of music featuring world recognised top artists at realistic prices. It is an evening picnic in beautiful surroundings. Bring a chair or blanket and sit in the lazy evening sunshine and soak up fabulous music whilst enjoying a picnic, a plate of something hot from our high quality food stalls, a good honest pint of real ale from Bradfield Brewery or a glass of something fruity in the company of people with whom you can unwind. It is a music festival for those people who do not fancy the idea of attending a music festival!
Music in the Gardens is now in it’s 12th year and is organised by the combined efforts of Rotary Clubs from South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire. The event is designed to be a major event on the social calendar and be a major community event and fundraiser for various local Charities.
Each charity is also responsible for organising a bucket collection during the interval, to help boost its income. So please, bring lots of loose change – the folding type would be good! Each evening, in addition to having a great time, you will be making a major difference. Because of the help we receive in hosting the event, The Botanical Gardens Trust also gets a donation which goes towards the Gardens development.
To date, Music in the Gardens has raised more than £220,000 for local, national and international charities and projects.
