A new way of doing Rotary called Direct Membership. What’s this all about you may ask? Have you ever wanted to volunteer and join Rotary but your time is not your own? Are you a volunteer with a passion but lack the expertise to move it forward? Then why not consider joining as a Direct Member. Direct members join a virtual environment with flexibility to join meetings, discuss your own ideas and projects and meet members from other parts of the UK and internationally. Interested? Check this video out www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6if2re5RMw and contact us on 07802 830534.

The secrets out! Once thought of as a Secret Society, The RAOB, often called the Buffs, are a fraternal organisation supporting social and welfare needs of our members. Fun, Friendship and Fundraising are the reasons we meet. This year we have sent 2 ambulances to the Ukraine, provided financial support to Zoe’s Place, the Stroke Association and various local good causes. Dennis Hill Lodge No8429 meet at Wagon Load of Lime, Arley, CV7 8FU at 8.30pm on Thursdays. For more information visit www.RAOBGLE.co.uk, email hq@RAOBGLE.org.uk or ptbworsley@sky.com.

We aim to provide help and funds for those in need. We assist individuals and families in crisis, provide items of essential household equipment, distribute food parcels and make donations to local schools and other charities. We are all volunteers committed to helping those in need. We are non-political, non-religious and have no cultural boundaries or gender discrimination. If you would like to know more or to join us in helping others, please contact us via our Facebook page or by telephoning 0345 833 5921.
