Banstead Rotary Club has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds over the years for charity, without our members taking a penny for ourselves. We give back to the community, both local and international - and we'd love to have you along.
We support and work in partnership with a wide range of charities and projects at a local and national level. By combining our skills, time and resources, we are able to successfully deliver local and national campaigns which have a positive impact in our communities.
We're preparing a variety of community service and fund-raising projects.
Rotary gives everything to charity and we are careful to see that the money we raise goes to the people who need it. The money from our Christmas collections goes to local charities, and we also do fundraising for the third world throughout the year e.g. sending Shelter Boxes to places like the Philippines after disasters, so peoples’ lives will be changed for the better. If you want to give money to charity you can be sure if you do it via Rotary none of the money goes into members’ pockets and we pass every penny raised to local charities. We try to ensure that the money gets to people who really need it!

'The WHO Africa region declared Polio free'
After decades of work across 47 countries on the continent,
the World Health Organization has certified the Africa region polio free.
Today, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Africa region, has officially been certified free from wild
poliovirus, signifying a major milestone in the battle to eradicate the disease worldwide.
This certification has come four years after Nigeria, the last polio-endemic country in Africa,
recorded its final case of wild polio and is an incredible public health achievement for Rotary members,
the African region, and Rotary’s partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI).
This progress is the result of a decades-long effort across the 47 countries which make up the
WHO’s African region and now means that five of the six WHO regions,
which represent 90% of the world’s population, will be free of polio.

Get Moving to End Polio is a new fundraising activity to support Rotary’s Purple4Polio campaign to end polio now and forever. The border between the last two polio-endemic countries, Pakistan and Afghanistan, is ‘more than 1,240 miles’, so we have focused the figure around our latest campaign.
The idea is simple. Host an event incorporating the number 1,240 whilst raising funds to eradicate polio.
