Anniversaries: Happy & Sad – 23 Feb 2024

This week was Rotary’s 119th Birthday: a good time to recall the importance of the Rotary motto “Service above self” and a cause to celebrate humanity and altruism. Almost 1.4 million Rotary members do their best to work to this motto.

Both the happy and the sad are reflected in the video below where we take a quick look at just some of the recent work of Rotary in war-torn Ukraine.


Additionally Rotary GB&I have provided generators to keep Ukranian hospitals running and Banbury Rotary Club has specifically provided funds for signage to warn people to keep out of areas peppered with Russian landmines. Around 100 people a month are killed by these mines and around a dozen of those are children. Many more are injured.
