Welcome to the Rotary Club of Romsey Test website
The Rotary Club of Romsey Test is a part of Rotary International, a huge global charitable organisation that has instigated philanthropic projects on a vast scale. The almost completed project to eradicate polio from the planet is the most prominent example.
The Rotary Club of Romsey Test which has around 60 members, seeks to make a positive contribution to Community, Youth and International activities and charities. Please explore the activities of the club by clicking on the various headings above.
Working alongside the Rotary Club of Romsey we have established a joint Facebook site Rotary in Romsey which can be explored by clicking on the link alongside this message.
Of course, as a result of the pandemic, 2020 was not a normal year for the Club and 2021 is currently looking rather uncertain. However, we are keen to support charities many of whom are experiencing fund raising difficulties at this time.
During the pandemic the Club has not been able to meet face to face. In lieu of the cost of meetings and meals members have instead donated their funds to our local Romsey Food Bank.
The Rotary Club of Romsey Test is perhaps best known for organising the annual Walk The Test Way. This sponsored walk has been a huge success and since 2003 it has raised over £950,000 for numerous charities. Last year we had to cancel the physical event but inspired by Captain Tom we adopted a virtual walk entitled Walk The Test Another Way. Walkers were invited to obtain sponsorship for their chosen charity, register as usual and then complete their selected challenge at their convenience. The event was successful and raised over £25,000 for charities.
We will be announcing what other events we plan to hold this year as restrictions permit.
If you would like to know more about or help with our activities, please get in touch (click here). We welcome new members or just people who are interested in making a difference.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to hearing from you.
