The new man at the helm of The Rotary Club of Chipping Sodbury says the organisation is looking for new fundraising ideas.

The club, which recently celebrated its 60th anniversary,  is the organisation behind the popular Classic Car Run and the Sodbury Sportive.

John Berridge is the new president of the Club which raises around  £30,000 each year.  The money goes to a variety of local causes such as the Sodbury Memory Café, and a number of local schools have received grants. One grant helped to send a team of students to Nigeria to help with a primary school in Kampala.

John said:  “The world is constantly changing and we are looking for new fundraising ideas that people will enjoy and that also allows us to help local causes”.

One of his aims for the club is to become a bigger part of the local community and for the community to know that the club is there to help.
