The Rotary Club of Sidcup

The Rotary Club of Sidcup, in common with the town to which it owes its name, is a thriving group of friendly people who either live or work in Sidcup, Kent.

Service Above Self

Like all Rotary Clubs the world over, the Sidcup Rotary Club is founded on the principle of 'Service Above Self'. What this means in practice is that while we enjoy fellowship with our fellow members, a pleasant meal each week at our meetings and the entertainments that our regular events and excursions provide, we never lose sight of our over-riding aim: to use our skills and resources to help local, national and international projects. Many charities have benefited from the funds that the Rotary Club of Sidcup has tirelessly raised since its foundation all those years ago in 1935.

A Message From Our President

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I have the privilege of serving the club for the year 2017-18.

The Club was founded 82 years ago and has, during this time, been very involved in the local community as well as supporting charities and humanitarian projects both in this country and overseas.  We will continue to support the local Job Centre with guidance to 18-24 year old unemployed and assist at both Carlton Day Centre and Marlborough School.  As in previous years we will support the literacy project at Orchard School and give career advice to local secondary schools. Last year the Club was involved in Young Enterprise, and this year we will organise the Bexley Young Musician competition with the other Bexley Rotary Clubs.  We have helped with a number of charity collections and organised the traditional annual visit of Father Christmas throughout the Sidcup area as part of our charity appeal at the festive season.

The members uphold the Rotary motto of “Service above Self” and assist whenever called upon with local charity and community events.

Please take some time look at the many items on this web site.  You will find how we have tried to make a difference in the local community, nationally and Internationally.

Last year we launched a “Satellite” Club for those who support Rotary ideals but who, due to pressure of work or family commitments, are unable to become full Members of an existing Rotary Club. This is an exciting new venture and it might interest you to become a Friend of the club.

For more details of our Club and Membership, please contact our Secretary, Mrs Brenda Hitchcock, whose contact details can be found on the contact page.
