The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to be sponsoring the South Bromsgrove High School Interact Club, where the Headteacher is a Rotarian. The Club was established on 7 March 2019, and already its members have identified the Basement Project in Bromsgrove and a school in Tanzania as two causes worthy of their support and fundraising efforts. It’s great to see young people embracing the idea of ‘Service above self’ and working enthusiastically for the benefit of those less fortunate than themselves in communities at home and abroad!
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to be one of the organisations supporting young people who will be jetting off to North America this summer to be part of the 24th World Scout Jamboree. The Jamboree brings together 40,000 Scouts from over 150 countries round the globe to a unique cultural experience that only takes place once every four years. It truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the Scouts as they can only attend once as a young person. Further details can be found in an article published in Issue 9 of Completely Bromsgrove (May 2019).

The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove was appalled when the Hospice suffered theft of lead a couple of years ago from its roof, and donated money at the time to replace the lead which had been stolen.
We are delighted now to support the Primrose Hospice with a donation of £2375, which will enable the premises to be protected by a CCTV system.
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to support St John’s Middle School once again with a donation of £1800 to fund one of its summer camps in 2019, which will give a number of children some meaningful activities and channel their energies sensibly during the school summer holidays.
