CHRISTMAS POST - thank you
The 2016 'Rotary Christmas Post' saw Anstruther Rotary busily sorting and delivering more than 13,000 cards around East Neuk coastal villages. At 25 pence per card this meant that £3,260 was raised for a number of charitable and good causes.
THANK YOU to everyone who used the service and to everyone who helped and supported us to make possible this great result.
Looking further ahead, the 2017 Coastal Path Charity Walk will take place on Sunday 14th May. Details will be added to this website later, but arrangements will be much the same as in previous years.
With just under 140 walkers registered, the 2016 Charity Coastal Path Walk took place Sunday 15th May, raising £17,014 for 29 registered charities. Over the seven years the Walk has taken place a brilliant total of £95,154 has been raised.

Welcome to Anstruther Rotary
We are delighted to welcome you 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, many backgrounds, having the most varied skills in every field of endeavour. People who take a lead in serving their communities. Over 1.2 million people operating through almost 32,000 clubs in 168 countries around the world.
As one of 88 clubs in our Rotary district - which covers the north of Scotland, 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 past its 30th year. Our more recent Coastal Path Charity Walk has now completed its 7th 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.
