RGBI is proudly hosting it’s first ever training event for club officers (on the 25th Jan from 10am – 4pm in Edinburgh) – and you’re invited! It will be a great day packed with ideas for Rotaractors and Rotarians alike, and although very early in the process of elections, will hopefully have Rotaractors thinking about an officer role for the next Rotaract year, Rotarians discussing the hot topics of the day, and some ‘almost 30s’ talking about the next steps in the Rotary family.

The cost is only £5 which is to cover lunch which will be provided by a local shop, a social enterprise employing almost exclusively homeless people in a bid to provide a stable lifestyle. An online registration form is available for both Rotaractors and Rotarians, so please follow the relevant link and book up! We will also welcome any Rotarian that might find it interesting, and we hope to run a session for Rotarians who want to learn more about Rotaract.

Places are limited for this event, so book now and don’t miss out!

Members of Bournemouth Rotaract are holding a Christmas Fayre to raise funds for Dorset Blind Association charity. It will be open to the public and will be a fun filled day for all the family with Christmas themed activities, Santa’s Grotto, crafts, stalls to buy gifts and cards, yummy things to eat and drink, performances, games and lots of prizes to be won!

All in aid of Dorset Blind Association charity: helping local people with sight loss and hearing impairment.

Sunday 8th December, 11am – 4pm, Bar So, Exeter Hotel, Bournemouth
