Going Forward with People of Action

Possibilities are all around us

As we build our new kind of Rotary for the 21st Century, we want to help build sustainable communities; we believe that Social Enterprises, Social Firms and local businesses are key to building strong and caring places we live in. Our Rotary will offer opportunities to promote, network, grow ethically and encourage the ability to evolve enterprise amongst our members and within our communities. Please keep the date of the Wednesday 21st March, 2018 in Winchester, Unwrapping Social Enterprise – Helping to Grow a Market Place. We are working in partnership with Action Hampshire, CEO The Suzy Lamplugh Trust, PALS Society. Come and learn more about Social Enterprise in Hampshire and surrounding counties, how Social Firms can offer real jobs and opportunities to people in communities and once you have the understanding help us to work to build economic and sustainable communities. More information soon.

We turn great ideas into action

It was brilliant that this week Monty’s Bike Hub were able to join our Interact Club at TSTC and share their experience of Social Enterprise work in Sholing, inspire our members about re-cycling bikes and general give encouragement to our young innovators.

Can you please help this initiative – we are looking for some donated bikes, that our interactors can work on, so as to generate some funds to buy in the services of Monty’s Bike Hub to offer Bicycle Safety Checks to all the pupils in TSTC.

Rotary Social Innovation is all about….

…. helping our community through projects like Let’s Hear in Portsmouth, helping Portsmouth becoming a Dementia Action Alliance, raising issues in different ways through our Theatre Innovation project.

Toucan Diversity 2We are always looking for new things to do and we want to do this in partnership with others, like build awareness of communities adopting the Social Model of Disability and working collaboratively with Toucan-Diversity. we would like to encourage people in the community, businesses and organisations to go on their current training courses.

Conservation, Re-cycling and Environmentally friendly projects are something we want to work on in partnership with others across our community, to encourage better housekeeping of this wonderful world we live in. Watch out for new things to get involved in, like on the 3rd March a Beach Clear Up in Lee on Solent.

We are so please to be part of the Rotary International network, who do some amazing things through its charity The Rotary Foundation.

Can we help on the 23rd February, Rotary’s Birthday, do more to help with the eradication of Polio?

Online Rotary with the option to meet Face to Face

Yes we understand we now live in a busy world, time and capacity is in sort supply when work and families come first. Rotary Social Innovation South East Hampshire is a new way to get involved when time permits. Our next Face to Face meeting is on 27th February, 2018 at Portsmouth University at 6.00.pm, a chance to catch up with others, learn more about what we are doing and support each other.

Calling all to help with the Portsmouth Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday 13th May. We are looking for crew members and sponsorship for our boat, which we are entering in aid of Toucan-Diversity. We are encouraging other groups and organisations to consider entering a boat. We need our members to offer a couple of hours in the day to help with stewarding. We need everyone far and wide to come with their families to have a great fun, exciting and wonderful day.
