Our purpose as a Club


Our purpose is to serve both our local and wider communities through a variety of humanitarian and community projects. These can range to helping individuals in need by practical "hands on" or financial assistance, or supporting other local charitable causes such as hospices, local hospitals, schools and other organisations, benefiting the public at large.

 We aim particularly to support young people, the elderly, the lonely and the disabled in our communities. Throughout the year, supported by our partners and friends, we run a variety of events and activities which not only enable us to raise funds to pursue our charitable aims, but also to provide entertainment for the public.

 We do not take administrative costs from our fund raising projects; we are one of the few organisations where every penny raised goes to the cause supported.

Alongside our humanitarian activities, we run a variety of social events for our members, partners and friends, in the spirit of not only helping others but having fun.

In all that we do, we are guided by a code of ethics which stress service to others, honesty, integrity and friendship. These are backed up by a set of Purposes or objectives which encourage us to take an active part in the local and wider community in which we live.
