The Rotary Club of Newark Castle was founded in 1987 with the guidance of the
Rotary Club of Newark.
Club membership has reached twenty eight and regular attendance encourages good fellowship and friendly relationships worldwide. Dual gender is now the preferred make up of the Club and we are always looking for members who are prepared to give service to others who are less fortunate than themselves.
The main objective of Rotary is service -- in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
About what we do
Santa's Grotto raises £1600.00 for Children's Charities.
The Rotary Club of Newark Castle’s 30 year old tradition of inviting Santa into their Butter Market Grotto once again proved to be a tremendous success in the run up to Christmas.
The Five hundred children who visited Santa in his Noth Pole Igloo, told Santa what they wanted for Christmas and received an early present to keep them going until Christmas Day arrived.
The Rotary Club of Newark Castle provides this event as a service to the town’s children at a minimal cost of £3.50 per child.
The Grotto raised £1600.00 this year and the profits as always will be donated to children's charities. Rainbows Hospice for Young People and the Newark Children's Bereavement Centre will each receive a donation of £800.00
