Below are some of Rotary MK's recent projects - click to view more details

  • Rotary Foundation Projects
  • Building a Pizza Oven for Action4Youth
  • Supporting Education in India
  • Community Service

    Each year, a small proportion of the funds raised by Swimathon is allocated to use for general charitable purposes within the Milton Keynes area. Our priorities are to support those with special needs, those seeking to develop their skills, and enterprising individuals.

    We are involved in five regular projects

    Lend-a-Hand Day

    Help for older people

    Schools’ Technology Tournament

    This was the scene at the June 2018 competition, sponsored by several Milton Keynes rotary clubs

    Christmas Panto

    An annual theatre trip for young MK carers

    Rotary’s Young Musician

    The 2018 MK winner was pianist Anaïs Stanners from Oakgrove School, who was sponsored by MK Rotary Club

    Kids Out

    An annual trip to Whipsnade Zoo for students of Redway School

    Working with Steel Bones

    On 22 February Steel Bones, a charity supporting civilian amputees, together with Milton Keynes Rotary Club, iFly Indoor Skydiving, Xscape, Pizza Express and Destination Milton Keynes, all pulled together to create a once-in-a-lifetime skydiving experience for Steel Bones members.

    The care and sensitivity with which iFly staff assisted the Steel Bones members to skydive was wonderful to see and Pizza Express laid on a most enjoyable meal with excellent organisation and superb service for Steel Bones members and their families.

    An exciting follow-up is that a team of Steel Bones members will swim in Milton Keynes Rotary Club’s Annual Swimathon on 9 March to help raise funds for other Milton Keynes community groups.

    And we respond to requests for help, for example:
