Three clubs collaborate for fundraising project and open day in June!

Save the date! Wonderful news of local Rotarians pulling together to complete a challenge!

A great trio from across Gedling Borough – Mapperley & Arnold Rotary, Carlton Rotary, and Ravenshead and Blidworth Rotary – have taken on the challenge to raise funds to buy a minibus for Derrymount School in Arnold, Nottingham. The school serves youngsters with special needs from across the area.

The fundraising project is quite a challenge and they would welcome your help! They are looking for fundraising ideas and would value your time if you could work with them on this very important drive!

The three clubs have organised an open day for 24th June 2023 at Mapperley Plains Social Club Annexe for fun and fundraising and would love to see you there! They are looking for pioneers of a new style Rotary, ready to serve our community in a fun and very socially rewarding way. Please drop in!
