Meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at 8pm in The Bear, the aim of The Rotaract Club of Maidenhead is to provide 18-30 year olds with an opportunity to get involved in the local community, and to meet like-minded people in the local area.
“We want to share the great things we’re doing in the community, and let others know how they can get involved, whist at the same time giving people the opportunity to network with, community leaders and volunteers.” said Erin Faul, Club Member.
Maidenhead Rotaract are a very active club, organising an annual OAP Christmas Party and much-loved Cheese & Wine Charity Fundraising Quiz each year. They also marshal at the Maidenhead Half Marathon, regularly volunteer at the local food bank FoodShare, run charity fundraisers and are generally out and about making our community a better place. In addition to the numerous community activities there are of course social ones, enabling members to get to know each other better and to have fun being involved in the local community.
“Maidenhead Rotaract enables young people to join a global movement of young leaders who are developing innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.” Commented Lisa Hunter, former President of Maidenhead Rotaract and current member of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club.
“As Maidenhead Rotaract enters its 40th year we’re kicking off an exciting recruitment campaign to induct 40 new members for 40 years of fun, friendship and volunteering. So, it’s a really exciting time to get involved, giving you the change to learn new skills, meet new people, give back to the community and shape what you would like out of Rotaract.” Lisa continued.
So if any of the above sounds good to you, come along to the fun social and community networking event, who knows what exciting adventures it might take you on!
