Get Involved

We are very keen to have non-members assist in some of our projects. This is a great way to help the local community without any commitment to joining. If you then think Rotary is for you, come along to a few meetings to find out more.

You may wish to help at the local Food Bank or on the Ayrshire Coastal Path. Or work on our various Youth activites. Perhaps help run our Charity Golf Day or simply do some litter picking. And there are lots of other activities to get involved with. Read more>>

Or some people may wish to make a donation, which allows us to help others. Click the "Donate" button - you do not need a Paypal account, simply use your debit or credit card.

New Environment Committee

Ayr Rotary have formed an Environment Committee following Rotary International's approval of a "new area of focus" .

Under the leadership of Alasdair Meldrum, the committee have already several projects lined up, more details shortly.

At our regular meeting on 27 April, two leading environmentalists helped explain what Rotary can do to help - it is up to us all to do whatever we can to make our contribution to addressing the massive environmental threats to our world. Specifically regarding litter and waste there are three key areas:

  • Enforcement
  • Education
  • Infrastructure.

The Ayr Rotary Bike Project to provide bicycles to Dalmilling Primary School so that they are able to teach their pupils to cycle safely with the help of Bikeability has now taken off. The first bike was handed over to Dalmilling Primary’s Head Teacher Jodie Thomson and Community Learning Assistant Karla Johnson by the Rotarians Neil Beattie and Paul Williams. We have had a great response to our appeal, but are still looking for more. Pls send a PM if you can help

Ayr Rotary has been collecting toiletries, etc for Ayr Womens Hub as well as giving them a supply of LED bulbs to be given out when needed. President Hazel has been gathering the toiletries in her “3 C’s Café” and the photo shows the ladies in the Hub with one of Hazel’s deliveries. The Hub provides essential support to families and individuals at times of great difficulty and we are pleased to be able to help.

Dalmilling Primary School in Ayr has a wonderful scheme where kids in Primary 5 get taught to ride bikes safely and get road skills taught by experts. Some pupils don’t have bikes so the school lends them one, but they don’t have enough. Ayr Rotary members are sourcing bikes to give to the school, but we need anyone who has a suitable bike for a 10 year old, to get in touch. They do need to be in in good working order. Please PM us
