The Rotary Club of St Marylebone is actively involved with local community and international projects.
The charitable projects for which we shall raise funds in the Rotary Year 2018- 2019 are:
Woman's Trust - supporting women to recover from domestic violence
StreetSmart - Helping the Homeless
Orion (Youth Orchestra) - A unique training experience for young musicians
The David Nott Foundation - Established in 2015 to provide training for local medical and nursing teams in conflict and disaster zones throughout the world
In addition, we shall honour our Club's obligations to the Rotary Foundation with the "End Polio Now" campaign and other local and national charities.
Recent projects include;
The Club micro-financed a group of poor women in a Mexican village, to buy raw materials for a range of artisan products that they manufactured and sold in the markets. The project enabled the women to provide food and shelter for their families.
- The Club has played its part in supporting Rotary’s global flagship campaign to ‘End Polio Now’ by commissioning a local artist to design greeting cards - the proceeds of the cards supports the campaign
- Emergency Aid – the Club joins other Rotary Club around the world in offering life saving support when natural disasters overwhelm people, for example, the recent floods in Pakistan and the earthquake in Haiti
- Educational Scholarships/Study Exchange Programmes – the Club joins Rotary Clubs around the world in promoting the exchange of ‘ambassadorial’ students by supporting them in London and helping them travel overseas.
