Rotarians are professional men and woman who volunteer in their own communities and abroad to support education, job training and the reduction of environmental deterioration and in particular to work in those countries most in need of clean water, an end to hunger and improved health and sanitation. The Rotary Club is especially committed to the eradication of polio worldwide and Rotary International is the key private partner of the World Health Assembly in this global battle. Rotary volunteers work in over 100 countries to support childhood immunisation.

 A Message From The Rotary Club of Hope Valley

Our second (hopefully annual) Rotary Charity Céilidh, held on Saturday 10th November at Hathersage Memorial Hall was a true 'win win' event. 77 revellers danced the evening away, responding to a motivating and experienced 'dance caller' leading everyone through tune after tune from the superb Bash Street Band.  The dance floor was filled with laughter as everyone whirled around the floor and danced the evening away.

Evidence that the evening was a success was stamped on smiling faces and the sound of happy chatter, when everyone took a break to catch their breath to enjoy a huge plate of pie, peas and chips. Have a look at the photographs to see what fun was had by all.
