What We Do
We fundraise each year to enable us to support local community groups and charities and the wider international community.
Our main fundraiser this year is the “Night at the Proms” concert by the CPO (Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra) at Folly Farm on the 6th April.
Our Club has been bringing this musical opportunity performed by the CPO to the people of Pembrokeshire for over 15 years. These concerts provide a great musical occasion, appreciated and enjoyed by an enthusiastic audience. The 2018 concert raised over £8,000 for Prostate Cymru and Rotary Charitable causes. Tickets are £15ea.
See Events for more details of the actual programme and other ticket outlets.
Swing the Castle
Imagine a balmy Pembrokeshire summer’s evening, sitting on the grass inside an actual castle, a glass of wine or beer, burgers and sausages from the bbq and dancing to the music of the RinTins – a leading ‘Gypsy Jazz’ band – plus supporting musicians.
This is our family fundraiser – children and dogs are part of the fun Bring a chair or a blanket and watch the sun go down at Manorbier Castle.
Friday 9th August.
Helping our Community
As well as financial support our Club enables local organisations to raise money for themselves.
Each year, our Club sponsors and organises a
The Club donates the cash prize pool while local businesses generously donate other raffle prizes.
In 2018 twelve community groups participated in the raffle and together raised nearly £5,000 to support their activities.
Rotary strongly encourages personal development for all young people.
Our Club supports the ‘Rotary Young Leaders Awards’ course which develops confidence, social awareness and leadership skills.
This is an annual course which comprises outdoor activities, problem solving challenges and social activities which together make a challenging – but rewarding – week for the students. Each year our Club selects five students from Bush School who can most benefit. By the end of the week new friendships have been forged, personal aspirations met or exceeded and all participants without fail say that they will never forget the experience.
Rotary also runs several national Youth Competitions. Our Club supports Young Chef, Young Musician and Young Writer, which encourages some of the immense pool of talent which exists in our schools.
