Gillingham Rotary Update.

In recent weeks our members have given to all year six children in Gillingham and Mere an illustrated dictionary, “Dictionary 4 Life” Cost approximately £550.00.

We have helped at the Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show in many ways. Also at the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival by manning one of the gates.

Future fund raising plans.

October 7th will be the annual Duck Race on carnival day at the Town Bridge.

21st October in conjunction with the swimming club we are running a Swimathon. Currently this is sponsored by the following businesses, Farnfields, Chalks Garage, Palmer Snell and R&C Consulting.

17th November will be the annual Race Night at the Olive bowl, tickets £10 with a Fish and Chip supper.

27th January 2018 will be what is now the annual Burns Night at the Olive Bowl.


We also have a non fundraising activity during September and October; when we circulate schools and organisations with information on our Shoe Box Appeal. This is for people to fill a shoe box with items for Education, health and hygiene purposes for children up to the age of 15 years. This year they will be going to disadvantaged children in Albania, Montenegro, Moldova and Romania.


For further information on any of the above, whether for tickets or to sponsor an event, please contact Phil Wheatley at 01747 824663, 07784777282 or
