Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club celebrated its 4th birthday on Sunday with a party for members, friends and family. The innovative, vibrant and flexible club was founded back in 2012 to offer young professionals and people with families the opportunity to get involved in the local community whilst meeting new people and having lots of fun.
In addition the club also welcomed four new members to their fold, Costa Televantou, Rebecca Dolopei, Katherine Harris and David Gunn, taking their total membership to 49!
Club President Victoria Williams commented “we’ve certainly lived up to what we set out to achieve 4 years ago having donated over 5,350 volunteer hours in that time, supporting a wide variety of charities…and we’ve all had so much fun doing it.”
The club organises several key events each year including the Easter Family Fun Day in Grenfell Park which now attracts over 500 local families each year, as well as the annual Health Awareness Day in January which gives advice to local Maidonians about blood pressure, healthy hearts, diabetes etc with the support of professional organisations.
“We are really looking forward to a new event next February – 24 challenges in 24 hours, which will see members take on 24 different challenges including swimming, Zumba, trampolining, mental challenges and Tai Chi over a 24 hour period, all in aid of charity”, Victoria shared.
Victoria continued “the members of our club are an amazing group of people; they have inspired me and motivated me. I could not have asked for a better group of friends and I am very much enjoying leading the group this Rotary year.”
