The Rotary Club of Ascot principally provides support to well known Local Community activities and raises money for local, national and international humanitarian causes. We promote such events as a 'Youth Speaks" and "Young Chef" competitions and a Schools Music Concert for local schools. We also make awards to selected pupils who have given "Service Above Self" and assist schools by undertaking mock interviews with their students. Local causes supported in recent years include the Ascot Day Centre, Thames & Chiltern Air Ambulance, the North Ascot Community Association, Thames HospiceCare and Riding for the Disabled. We also support some individual requests for funding. We fund an education initiative in Nepal, Shelterboxes for international disaster areas, and have sent donations to support victims of UK flood disasters. However it is not all fund-raising and charity activities - there is also a lively social side to the organisation, with jazz evenings, race nights, garden parties, barbecues and day trips.
