Amble and Warkworth Rotary Club
In the 62 years since your local Rotary Club was founded, Rotarians have raised thousands of pounds to help charities and worthy causes which benefit the local community, as well as contributing to international projects. Most recently the club purchased shelter boxes for the victims of the Haiti earthquake and the floods in Pakistan. The club also sent £150 for the Rotary Lifestraw project in Pakistan to enable people to have clean water to drink.
Some of the charities that have benenfitted recently include the Great North Air Ambulance, MacMillan Cancer Support, Warkworth and Amble Christmas Lights, Hospice Care North Northumberland, Grace House North East. Each year the club gives financial assistance to enable two or three pupils from Coquet High School to take part in trips aboard the James Cook Sailing Ship, and supports youngsters in other ways.
Community Service organises car park attendants and stewards for local events.
