The Rotary Club in Aldridge has been active during the lockdown. The club has continued to meet virtually on Zoom and is now also meeting again back at its normal venue, Druids Heath Golf Club.
Aldridge Rotary is a ‘service’ club, which is to say the members work together to help out locally and internationally, and make sure they have a lot of fun whilst doing this. Club President, Steve Johnson said he is “impressed and grateful to the people of Aldridge for their generosity and support”.
As well as lending a hand practically the club has raised and distributed some £11,000 over the last year. These are some of the good causes the club has helped: Acorns; St Giles; Walsall Heartcare; Support for disadvantaged children; Barr Beacon School Music Group; James Brindley Foundation; PPE for Manor Hospital; Flood relief; Community Defibrillator. Internationally, donations have been used to continue the programme of World-wide Polio eradication (a job almost done) and for loans, which assist individuals in developing countries (which has so far helped over 1000 people make a new and sustainable life).
Aldridge Rotary is looking for new members now and is open to everyone. Indeed, as President Steve says, “Make a difference, be part of something amazing, be yourself!”
