The Rotary Club of Corby is appealing for people interested in joining a new group being launched in the town.

It would be an independent Rotary club with its own officers and members, men and women, who would come up with ideas to serve the community.

Ray Jackson, of the Rotary Club of Corby, said: “We need to recruit new Rotarians from the younger generation to carry on the service tradition developed over the past 56 years.

“We hope to recruit people who want to work with like-minded individuals in good fellowship to help the community.

“The club would meet regularly, perhaps at breakfast or lunch. Married couples may decide they would both like to become Rotarians and it is hoped that the membership would also reflect the growing international nature of the town.”

Mr Jackson said the new group would receive advice and support from existing Rotary club members and officers.”

The Rotary Club of Corby organises and participates in a range of charitable projects, helping people in the UK and overseas.

They include Aquaboxes and Shelter Aid, providing equipment and tents for disasters in this country and abroad, the Life Education project which helps young people make healthy life choices and Kidsout, which gives children in Corby with special educational needs a fun day out.

Anyone who is interested in helping to launch a new Rotary club in Corby is asked to contact Mr Jackson on 01536 746206, Peter Brotherton on 01536 770741 or Phil Bromhall on 01536 771749.
