The Rotary Club of Bracknell was established in 1962, being part of the Bracknell club and the larger community of Rotary International enables members to raise money for local, national and international charities. Members enjoy making new friends and being part of a new social circle with varied social occasions and fund raising events.
Local fund raising events include the 3 Counties Cycle Ride on the first Sunday in June which attracts over 600 riders each year, over £400,000 has been raised for local charities since it was funded in 1983. We organise a fun Burns Night party every January with Scottish dancing. If you don’t dance you will love watching the tangles people get into. In December we host a service of Nine Lessons and Carols held in the Chapel at Wellington College, this is a wonderful evening in beautiful surroundings.
Our club has raised thousands of pounds for charities which include: The British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research, Macmillan Cancer Support, The Salvation Army, Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Help4heroes. We work towards the eradication of Polio, supply shelter boxes in areas of disaster, as well as helping local families that are in need of help.
