Helping people and organisations in the local community is a fundamental part of Rotary; about 75% of the funds we raise is spent within the Felixstowe area.
We not only provide funds but also the help needed to get things done for young and old alike.
We provide dictionaries for all pupils at the Felixstowe primary schools usually in Year 4. We organise Youth Speaks an event where pupils from all schools in Felixstowe are invited to make presentations they have created.
We also organise Young Designer for children at the Felixstowe Academy and award prizes for stimulating designs. Members also help with the mentoring of students, providing advice and job interview practice. We will be starting a project called Young Photographer a competition run across the East of England.
