Shipston on Stour
Shipston Rotarians try to make a contribution to the lives of people in the Shipston/South Warwickshire area, and in many parts of the world, by supporting charities and good causes in the local community and International projects such as the campaign to end Polio. ♥
But we need to raise the money for all those good causes.
Our focus is on supporting young people. We help in a variety of ways at both local Primary and Secondary Schools and support many local charities and good causes that benefit young people, eg the Youth Club, the Scouts, Cubs, among others.
Through the events Shipston Rotary organises, such as the Victorian Evening, and those that Rotarians help with, such as the Shipston Wool Fair and the Hidden Britain initiative to encourage visitors to the town, we also aim to help and support local business.
We meet, about 20-25 of us, most Tuesday evenings at the White Bear, High St, Shipston for a drink and a light meal, perhaps a speaker but otherwise a chat, maybe on things we are doing or want to do.
In the wider world, thanks to Rotary worldwide and, recently, Bill and Melissa Gates, polio is close to being eradicated. There were 300,000 cases, approximately, when Rotary started the campaign in 1985, last year just 24 cases and none in Africa. This is not easy. Dozens of health workers administering the vaccine in Pakistan have been murdered. But they carry on. We must help them to finish the job.
