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.

Last week we had a hugely inspiring talk from Scott Maclean, Head Coach with Kinetic 365 Coaching who gave us powerful food for thought, perfect for all with an interest in leadership and/or personal development. Scott stressed the importance of mindset - talent is not enough, mindset is all - and introduced us to the concept of 'Attic Space' - the part of our brains where, whatever our age or stage, there is still room for growth. We find the key to the attic through commitment, focus, resilience and attitude. Thank you, Scott, you've shown us how, with the right mindset, we can become even better Rotarians!

This week we had a fantastic talk from Stuart Laing of Poppyscotland and learnt about the wider work of the charity and Lady Haig's Poppy Factory - it’s not just about Remembrance Day! You can join in all year round to support the amazing work done to help veterans. We weren’t able to raise our usual thousands this year by selling poppies, but a huge thank you to all those who donated direct and we as a club have given £500 from our funds. Find out more about Poppy Scotland here: https://www.poppyscotland.org.uk

We were delighted to hand over a ‘Treasure Chest’ cheque to Ayrshire Cancer Support, our amazing local cancer charity. One of the vital things they do is transport Ayrshire patients to the Beatson for treatment, and costs have soared due to car-sharing restrictions during Covid, so all donations are hugely needed right now.
