Community Service is the opportunity Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.

Kid's Out Day a Great Success

 In June this year the turn out for Kid's Out Day was the largest ever for our Club to support. 182 Children went to Drayton Manor and were thrilled with rides they otherwise may never have had the opportunity to experience. Schools involved were Brays Road, Hallmoor, Forest Oak and Merestone. Feedback from the children was very positive, and this annual event will remain a prime feature in our calender.

Redditch Sponsorship for 2 Castles Runner

Redditch Runner Ed Roberts

Not being blessed with its own long distance runners, Rotary Club of Redditch turned to the next generation to participate in the 2 Castles Run, which took place on June 9th. Edward Roberts joined the District 1060 team to run on behalf of the Redditch Club, and finished 683rd out of 3388 runners, with a very creditable time of 47 minutes and 47 seconds.

Sponsorship from Redditch raised £300 towards the Rotary Wheel Appeal, which will help to provide specialist wheelchairs for sports men and women hoping to build on the legacy of the 2012 Paralympic Games.
