Rotary to stage Gloucester Rugby meet to garner new members

One of Gloucestershire's longest-standing Rotary clubs is hoping to attract new members to its ranks.

Rotary@Kingsholm is staging the new members evening on Monday, March 25, at Gloucester Rugby Club's Kingsholm Stadium.

For those who do not know, the branch is part of the international network of Rotary clubs which aims to help support the communities in which they live.

Richard Powell, of Gloucester-based estate agents, letting and property management firm Naylor Powell, and a long-standing member of Rotary@Kingsholm , said: "I joined to meet people I would not normally meet through work or socially. I have got on very well with everyone I have met at Rotary socially too, which is an added bonus, and we have a great time.

"The club also gets some very good speakers and basically raises money for local charities. Because we are from Gloucester we tend to support people from the city.

"One of the things we do is allow people to apply for grants of up to £500. We do about 20 or 30 of those a year.

"We might help a family who cannot afford a wheelchair, or actually go and paint someone's house for them if that is what they want. We do all sorts of things."

Anyone who is interested is welcome along to the meeting, which is due to take place at Gloucester Rugby Club's Kingsholm Stadium.
