Redditch Rotary to go shopping for new members The membership drive aims to raise Rotary’s profile in the neighbourhood

redditchA major recruitment drive by Rotary International is to be launched in Redditch’s Kingfisher Shopping Centre in a bid to attract ‘vibrant’ new members.
For five days, Redditch Rotary (RID 1060, England) will be stationed in Worcester Square in the shopping centre, inviting passersby to take part in activities and get a taste of what Rotary has to offer.
For more than a century, Rotary has dedicated itself to helping communities at home and across the world, whether it’s through building schools, helping tsunami victims in Sri Lanka or raising the funds to eliminate polio.
It is through the support of its members that Rotary is able to carry out its community work, and it is inviting locals to join them in making a difference by becoming a member.
Starting on Monday, March 27, the membership drive aims to raise Rotary’s profile in Redditch, giving them the opportunity to see in action some of the brilliant work Rotary does.
Each day will be dedicated to one of Rotary’s six key areas of focus, ranging from topics such as disease prevention and treatment to water and sanitation. .
Peter Roberts, District Governor for the Redditch region, said: “Rotary has long supported community projects in Redditch and has held a long heritage of doing great work with the support of locals.
“Rotary has previously held a perception that it is old fashioned but that simply isn’t the case anymore, it has evolved into a vibrant organisation of like-minded people wanting to get together to make friends, network and support some really great causes.”
Members will be in Worcester Square from 9am to 4.30pm daily from March 27 to March 31. On Thursday March 30, the station will stay open until 6.30pm.
