Welcome to The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge
Thank you to everyone who supported the recent Vintage Weekend in Hebden Bridge. Thousands of visitors came to seen a fabulous collection of cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles from yesteryear.
Proceeds from the car show will enable the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge Trust Fund to continue supporting local, national and international charities and good causes.
In September and October, members of the Rotary club will be supporting the Rotary Shoebox Scheme. The club will be distributing boxes to local schools in September and to members of the public from a stall in St George's Square on Saturday 11th and Saturday 18th October. The boxes will then be collected and sent to the scheme organisers who will deliver them to orphanages, children’s hospitals and underprivileged families in Eastern Europe.
If you are interested in supporting the scheme, either as an individual or as a local pub, business, school or nursery please contact us.
More information about Shoeboxes can be found on the scheme's own page
