Cheltenham Rotary events and activities
Cheltenham Rotary is part of a worldwide network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Our town benefits greatly from Cheltenham Rotary, both in terms of funding for local charities, and also because we support local good causes like Open Door and Battlefield Children’s Hospice. But it’s not just about what we do for others. Our members also derive great pleasure and social interaction here and abroad by being part of Cheltenham Rotary.
Although still in pandemic restrictions, we’re making preparations for our summer programme of events. Will they be able to go ahead? Only time will tell
Our vaccine appeal is roaring ahead …… over £20k including gift aid. How marvellous is that!
We have now officially launched our ‘Friends of Cheltenham Rotary’ scheme. If you would like to be included in this, please contact our Membership Team Leader. ‘Friends’ will receive regular updates on our activities and invitations to join us for many activities and social events.
We have re-launched our Covid-19 appeal with a slight difference; adding Cheltenham to the title.
The donations are still arriving, including a cheque for £1,000 received this morning.

The Vaccine Appeal has now topped £4,000, enough already for hundreds of vaccines.
Our Rotary Vaccine Appeal has now topped £3,750 and the donations are still pouring in, by online donation and by cheque
Our Rotary Vaccine Appeal campaign has brought in an amazing two thousand pounds in less than a week. We’ve set an initial target of £10,000 and it’s looking good so far
We had a brilliant talk on Tuesday from a fellow Rotarian all about his flight from here to Finland in his private aeroplane.
Cheltenham Rotary has launched a major campaign on World Rotary day. We are asking everyone to donate the cost of their Covid-19 vaccination so that someone in a poorer country can also be vaccinated. Follow the link on our Home Page to see the information and for the link to donate.
The Virtual Wales walk is completed! Well done everyone who took part. We can now donate the £1,000 raised to the MS society, and we’re going to donate it to a local branch so that we can see it being used for specific items.
Our Plant 100 Trees project is going very well. We have planted dozens of trees already and we’ve received enough pledges to be able to complete the project within the year, our Centenary year.
It is with great sadness that we have to report that our President Ian Thomson has passed away after a short illness. He will be greatly missed by us, Rotary International and of course his family and close friends.
The Virtual walk of the Wales Coastal Path is exceeding all expectations! It look like we’ll complete the task within the next few weeks.
Our member Charmian Sheppard has created a new fund raising idea, virtually walking the length of the Wales Coastal Path. It’s 870 miles and Charmian expects to have it completed within 3 months if enough people take part. The aim of the project is to raise £1,000 for the MS society, with anything raised in excess of this amount going to other charities.
We are still in lockdown of course because of the current pandemic, and because we have Zoom available we’re able to still hold our regular meetings and plan for the future.
This is our centenary year. There’s a link on the home page to all our Centenary Year news and activities.
A new year and a new website. Cheltenham Rotary has always been very active and open to new ideas and changes, and here we are with a new website. It’ll take some time to get the website fully completed, so keep looking and see what’s been added
