Welcome to Anstruther Rotary
OUR ANNUAL CHARITY COASTAL PATH WALK TOOK PLACE SUNDAY 12th MAY, with just over 100 walkers enjoying a beautifully warm and sunny day. This year those taking part raised £11,255 and since 2010, when the Walk started, a remarkable £127,784 has been raised for many, many local, national and international charities.
Our CLUB CHOIR has again been practising diligently under the tutelage of Choir Director, Miss Jessie Lyon. First outings of the new season have already been made to Kilrenny, Leuchars and Arncroach. Christmas carols are now in hand.
As is now a traditional, our next big Rotary fundraiser is the CHRISTMAS POSTAL DELIVERY SERVICE, which will run from 9th to 19th of December. This covers the East Neuk coastal communities from Elie to Crail and the price remains at a great bargain of 25p per card! Please keep a look out for more information nearer the time.
Welcome to our website. Our club came into existence on 25th July 1951 and is part of the international family of Rotary.
Rotary is for men and women who wish to serve their communities and who try to make a difference to the lives of others around the world, by giving of their time, knowledge and skills and by helping to raise funds in support of the many in need.
We are the world's largest service organisation for people of many backgrounds, having the most varied skills in every field of endeavour. People who take a lead in serving their communities. Rotary is made up of more than 1.2 million people, operating through some 32,000 clubs in 200 countries around the world.
We are one of 90 clubs in our Rotary district, which covers a beautiful area from the northern shores of the Firth of Forth, to the Shetland Isles in the North, and the Hebrides in the West. It is where around 3,000 neighbours, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change.
We are actively involved in local, national and international projects. We offer practical and financial assistance - whichever is most needed and is most appropriate. On occasion we will offer both if we can. We also aim to make this FUN and as a club have an enjoyable social calendar.
Our members are committed to our local area and help and support many groups, organisations and community events. We have perhaps become best known for our 'Christmas Post' - a local Christmas card delivery service - now well past its 30th year. Our more recent Coastal Path Charity Walk has now completed its 9th year.
Over the past three years and just in financial terms we have given over £60,000 for individuals, groups and charities - local, national and international.
We hope to use our skills and expertise to make a difference in our community by being TRUE in all that we do; being FAIR to everyone we deal with; offering GOODWILL and FRIENDSHIP and making sure that our actions are BENEFICIAL for everyone involved.
