Family Cycle Ride along the Crab & Winkle

On Sunday May 19th we shall be holding our very first Family Fun Cycle ride along the Crab & Winkle line to Canterbury and then back to Whitstable - at the back of Tesco's Garage. Young children must be accomplied by an adult(s) at all times. It is NOT a race and all participants will have a scheduled start as obviously everyone cannot start together.  Bring a picnic to stop along the route if you like.There will be water, tea & coffee available - hopefully at both ends for a small donation. We will be raising money for Mercy Ships (never heard of Mercy Ships? - they do any amazing job) from both your participation and sponsorship - hopefully you will raise sponsorship from friends and aquaintences.  We are hoping also to raise some sponsorship from local businesses.  If successful, we hope to make this an annual event. There will be a Certificate for those that would like one, on completion of the run. This event is about raising money BUT also about some family fun which almost everyone in th family can partipate in. Come and join us and if you feel like dressing up as some strange character, why not. - as long as it does not impede riding the bike!  Download an Application Form .

  Rotary Day

On Saturday February 23rd will be Rotary Day. We have yet to finalise the event but we shall be in Whitstable all day raising awareness of Rotary and in particular the massive campaign Rotary has made since the mid eighties. In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. At that time there were 1000 cases/day. Rotary has contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute more than $7.2 billion to the effort. Today, there are only three countries that have never stopped transmission of the wild poliovirus: Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. Just 37 polio cases were confirmed worldwide in 2016, and 18 in 2017 which is a reduction of more than 99.9 percent since the 1980s. Rotary will raise $50 million per year over the next three years, with every dollar to be matched with two additional dollars from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. These funds help to provide much-needed operational support, medical personnel, laboratory. WATCH THIS SPACE

   

Olive Picking at Olive Grove Farm, Italy 1-11th November 2019

 Hopefully this year the crop will be good. The weather is usually still great at this time of year and the olive picking "theraputic" and certainly not difficult. A great time will be had by all - we might even pick some olives! The proceeds as usual will go to Rotary Foundation. If anybody is interested in joining us for a few days between 1-11th please contact Kevin Fielding - olive picking is between these dates not necessarily all of them. Accommodation is limited and is on a first come first serve basis. Only need contribution towards food and DRINK!  For further information please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
