Poynton Rotary Club Supporting Communities
Volunteering work with Rotary, changes lives! Whether you are volunteering by helping your local community set up a foodbank or responding to local and international disasters, there is a project or activity to suit everyone. By volunteering with Rotary, you know that you will be changing people’s lives for the better.
We welcome men and women from all walks of life to join as members. Membership of our club is a great way to make new friends whilst working together raising funds or delivering help for causes both international, or nationally or within our local community. Please see Our Club page for more information on Poynton and District Rotary Club
Poynton Rotary Club very regrettably had to cancel this year's 2016 musical spectacular for all the family at very short notice due to a very severe flooding major incident.
See the letter to our supporters.
Our largest charity fund raising event is the spectacular annual concert Party in the Park, featuring all kinds of music, to suit all tastes. This concert runs from the afternoon to late evening with a number of top quality bands on the platform. They perform in the beautiful setting of Poynton Park, in front of a large audience of several thousand people.
For photos and the video from the 2015 event, please see the Gallery page.
Our club's charitable works depend heavily on the income generated from ‘Party in the Park’ ticket sales, merchandising and sponsorship of this our main fundraising event, which is the culmination of 6 months of planning and preparation. We have many other fund raising events throughout the year, which also help to address the needs of very many local needs such as hospitals, hospices, charity groups, community groups and individuals who can clearly demonstrate a need.
We also help those in need in poorer third world countries, particularly following natural disasters, and we continue to generously support Disaster Aid UK & Ireland in humanitarian work around the world. As a club we also initiate and support projects to improve sanitation and access to clean water for remote communities in developing countries.
As well as raising funds for all kinds of needs, we do have social occasions, parties, guided walks, theatre trips and interesting after dinner guest speakers, documented in our Events diary.
Please take a look through the pages of our website to gain a good flavour of what Rotary and especially our local Rotary Club is all about.
