Sidcup Rotary Club welcomes people who are interested in and care about their environment. Our aim is to ensure everyone is welcome, and no one feels out of place. We have a Satellite membership to cater for those who want to be part of a younger group. We are also exploring new membership models including e-clubs and Rotaract (previously for 18 to 28-year olds).
We are a non-political organisation and pride ourselves in being friendly, non-bureaucratic and welcome to new ideas. Gone are the days when we would accept only professionals or those in business. What really matters is that you are sociable, tolerant, action orientated and keen to make things happen.
We normally meet each Wednesday and mix business with pleasure. We invite interesting speakers to talk about their work, hobbies, or charity. The Sidcup Rotary Club has a Benevolent Trust, which makes donations to good causes after careful consideration and approval by its membership. Members generally join at least one Committee so that everyone gets involved in the running of the Club.
The Coronavirus has forced us to adapt and one benefit of using Zoom to hold our meetings is that members can attend from wherever they are at the time.
As individuals we are involved in a variety of local organisations where we put our skill to use and raise funds for our Benevolent Trust and other charities. Our principal fund raiser is our Christmas Collection when the whole local community enjoys seeing the sleigh and the opportunity to talk briefly to Santa. We also hold Quiz Nights, which are always good fun all the proceeds from which are passed to charities chosen each year. Our biggest single donation to date was over £37,000 to fund a new purpose-built community bus for the Bexley Accessible Transport Scheme which is used regularly by a variety of age groups and people with disabilities. Those interested in finding out more should look at this website, which gives you an insight into what we do. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would like further information or think that you might be interested in joining us and our Membership Team will get back to you.
We are delighted to welcome you to our Clubs web site. We have the privilege of serving the Club for the year 2022-23. This is the second year running that we have a joint Presidency. We hope to follow the excellent example of last year’s Presidents who successfully brought us through the difficult time of Covid.
The Club was founded 87 years ago and has, during this time, been very involved in the local community as well as supporting charities and humanitarian projects both in this country and overseas. Last year the Club was involved in Young Enterprise, and this year we will organise the Bexley Young Musician competition with the other Bexley Rotary Clubs. Each year we also arrange a Community Day Lunch in the spring. We have helped with a number of charity collections such as the Poppy Day collection and organised the traditional annual visit of Father Christmas throughout the Sidcup area as part of our charity appeal at the festive season.
The members uphold the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” and assist whenever called upon with local charity and community events. Rotary is a Worldwide organisation and this year’s International President Jennifer Jones asked members to “imagine the possibilities in the change they can make to transform the World. Imagine when we get up each day knowing we can
make a difference.”
Four years ago, we launched a Satellite Club for those who support Rotary ideals but who, due to pressure of work or family commitments, are unable to become full Members of an existing Rotary Club. This is an exciting and successful venture and it might also interest you to become a full member or Friend of the Club.
Please take some time to look at the many items on this web site. You will find how we have tried to make a difference in the local community, nationally and internationally
