New year brings a new name for the Bradley Stoke Rotary Club

Posted on Monday 9th February 2015 at 10:07 pm by SH (Editor)

Bradley Stoke Rotary Club president Phil King presents new regalia to (front, l-r): Roger Worth, Bob Warne and Karen Holley.

The local branch of the Rotary Club, known previously as the ‘Rotary Club of Bristol Aztec’, has been officially renamed the ‘Bradley Stoke Rotary Club‘, in order to identify itself more closely with the community it serves.

It is hoped the name change will lead to “greater awareness and integration with local residents and make the club more identifiable for local charitable causes”.

Bradley Stoke Town Council supported the club’s rebranding with a £500 Grant Aid award.

The change of name was marked at a special launch breakfast held at the Bristol Golf Club, Cribbs Causeway on 2nd January, attended by individuals with whom the club has worked with in the past or with whom it hopes to build working relationships in the future.

At the event, Phil King (founder president of the branch) presented the new Bradley Stoke Rotary Club regalia to Roger Worth (president), Bob Warne and Karen Holley.

The meeting also witnessed the presentation of a prestigious Rotary International ‘Paul Harris Award’ to founder member, former president and current secretary Peter Randall.

During 2014, the local rotary club supported numerous local projects, including sponsoring a student from Bradley Stoke Community School on a Rotary Youth leader course, helping to run a music workshop for disabled and disadvantaged children, staging the local Young Chef competition, organising a fundraising Swimathon and providing the barbecue at the Bradley Stoke Fireworks Display.

Sign up now for Rotary Club charity events this spring

Posted on Monday 25th February 2013 at 6:50 am by SH (Editor)

Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre and Library.

Bristol Aztec Rotary Club is gearing up for two major charity events in the coming months. Firstly there is the popular Swimathon from which 40% of the money raised goes to support Rotary Charities and 60% to nominated good causes of the swimmers’ choosing.

The Swimathon takes place at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre’s swimming pool on Saturday 9th March from 7pm until 9pm. In this event, teams of up to six members take place in a sponsored swim, for one hour, and they are usually sponsored for each length they complete. The club already has a number of children’s teams taking part, but there is space for more, so how about it you adults? Perhaps it could also be a part of your springtime fitness regime, and raise money for a cause dear to your heart at the same time? For sponsorship forms please contact Peter Randall on 01454 610777.

The Bristol Golf Club, Almondsbury, Bristol.

The other exciting event of note will be the Charity Golf Day, which will take place at The Bristol Golf Club from 9am on Wednesday 15th May and teams of four are invited to take part in what should be an enjoyable day. You don’t have to be a brilliant golfer to participate and ladies as well as men are invited to take part. The cost for an individual is £60 (£180 for the team), and includes a cup of tea and a bacon roll followed by 18 holes of golf, other competitions and a two course meal. There will be many interesting items in a raffle, and a silent auction. For entry forms please contact Karen Holley of 6, Factory Road, Winterbourne, Bristol, BS36 1QN or register online at: www.charitygiving.co.uk/aztecgolfday2013.
