The Rotary Club of Eastbourne AM is a friendly fun loving club with a diverse group of ages. We are also a mixed Club welcoming both men and women. Eastbourne AM is committed to helping worthwhile causes in Eastbourne, in the UK and around the world. Through strong friendships and a desire to get involved, we search out new projects to support, promote and enhance. A new perspective on helping others. Eastbourne AM depends on the commitment of existing members and the enthusiasm of visitors and guests. As a visitor, you can expect a warm welcome, lively conversation and an insight into the charitable work of our Club. Add to that an inspirational speaker and a delicious cooked breakfast, and you have enough reasons to give up an hour of your time
We are community champions who stand up for our communities both locally and overseas. We support those who need help, we strive to improve lives and we bring about positive change in our neighbourhoods. Every event, initiative or project that we run – whether it is local, national,international or online – is rooted in the notion of community. This is because we believe that society works better when communities work together.
Our clubs carry out a huge range of activities and projects at home aimed at improving and building community spirit. Many charities are appreciative of their local Rotary club for the money they receive through initiatives such as sponsored bike rides, Christmas collections and swimathons. A huge amount of hands on work is also carried out by members, such as organising and supervising days out for disadvantaged children, volunteering at local residential homes, and working with schools to run competitions. The list of local projects and initiatives is endless. Each Rotary club individually tailors the projects they get involved in to their community’s specific needs.
Our members carry out a wealth of international programmes and activities all over the world, reaching out to people in need. In many countries, millions die of starvation and from diseases that could be prevented by clean water, proper sanitation or medicines. Rotary members in Great Britain and Ireland use their skills and links to clubs in other countries to alleviate some of the causes of poverty. Other projects include eradication of hunger and malnutrition; reduction of child mortality, disease prevention and education for all. When natural disasters strike, anywhere in the world, Rotarians are usually the first people to take action, organising collections and raising large sums of money for the various charities that are best equipped to provide relief for those in need.
