Cowes Rotary club is a small club that meets every Thursday at the New Holmwood Hotel in Cowes. At the meetings we not only enjoy a good meal and fellowship but use this time to plan our events and other business.
Some of our events are supporting other charities such as the Earl Mountbatten Hospice with events such as Walk the Wight and Barton Manor craft fares where marshals are required, an essential part to these events. The club also invites local organisations to apply for funding for their individual projects such as ability dogs, Sailability, Ellen Macarthur Trust amongst others.
These are all looked at individually and grants are made where appropriate. Other events we organise are seniors out where we arrange Christmas Lunch for those that may not be so fortunate at that time of year. There are also international projects that we get involved in such as the eradication of polio, the shoe box appeal. For Young Enterprise Cowes Rotary provide prise money to for the Dragons Den event held by Rotarian Jamie Busby this is part of the schools Young Enterprise calendar. There are many more things the club gets involved in either financially or simply supply much needed man power for events to operate.
