Rotary is involved in sponsoring youth in different ways and organising a varied range of competitions such as the
Young Musician, Young Speaker, Young Writer, Young Photographer, Young Inventor as well as Rotary in London Athletics meet for schools, Youth Leadership award and Youth Makes Music.
As a local club we support some of the above but also work with Hatton School, which is a special needs school for children by funding an annual pantomime and taking them to a special schools event called “Kids Out”
We also donate to an evening club called Box 4 Life which is a volunteer led club that teaches children through non-contact boxing how to control themselves and helps significantly with their education and self belief
We help Trinity School by holding mock interviews to help them as they prepare to leave school. Belmont School is another school for children with special problems and we recognise the patience and strength of the teachers by providing small Christmas presents to the teaching staff who work in stressful surroundings.
We also support ad hoc needs when we are approached by young people raising money to work on sponsored aid work overseas.
