Taunton Vale Rotary Club has been in existence since its Charter was issued in 1981. Whilst the Club has a lively social calendar which promotes fellowship among members there is also a strong emphasis on Service for others.
During the time the Club has existed, members have raised over £500,000; been responsible for initiating the development of a local Abbeyfield Care Home (members continue to serve on the Trustee Committee); Taunton Opportunity Group (TOG) – another organisation where members are actively involved with the day to day management; and ran the It’s Child’s Play Project with the specific aim of raising funds for the Children’s Hospice South West.
What a year….. but now we’re allowed out to play let’s make it count!
Join us helping those who have really struggled throughout this last year and a half.
