Members of the club have been involved in the organisation of the recent Music in the Gardens event at Sheffields Botanical Gardens. The event over four nights featured The Glen Miller Orchestra, Sheffield group Heaven 17, The Unison brass band, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Now in its ninth year the event goes from strength to strength. Last year the 4 day event raised over £35,000 for good causes and this year we hope to improve on that figure.
Rotary has committed more than $1.2 billion to the global eradication of Polio. March 27th 2014 was a landmark day in the eradication programme when the South-East Asia Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) was certified polio-free, an historic milestone in the worldwide effort to end polio.
The 11 countries in the region - Bangladesh, Bhutan, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Timor Leste - are home to 1.8 billion people and represent the fourth of six WHO regions of the globe to become polio-free.
A Welcoming Message from the Club President
The Rotary Club of Dronfield is a friendly and lively club whose members come from Dronfield and the surrounding towns and villages. We meet on Tuesday lunchtimes, and occasionally for an evening dinner meeting with guests specifically invited.
Our club brings together people who want to make a difference to the lives of others who are less fortunate than ourselves. We do this whilst enjoying the fellowship within our club. We are one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs spread over more than 200 countries, each starting with a commitment to 'Service Above Self.'
