Do you want to reach out and providing a helping hand to help your community... and around the world?
At a time when communities need to come together more, Largs Rotary is reaching out and wanting younger men and women involved in their group.
Rotary is changing in Largs.
It is a voluntary organisation whose aims and objectives are to help change Largs and the world for the better.
You may have seen the Largs rubber duck race at the Gogo Burn earlier this year, or one of their fashion nights at M&Co They are a busy and active group.
Rotary membership secretary Ian Berwick explained: "We want to attract new members and businesses, with a variety of different skills, vocations and interests who live or work in Largs and are interested in the future of their local community and beyond to get involved."
The traditional Largs Rotary club meet on a Tuesday in the Willowbank Hotel at 12 midday for a 12.30 lunch. You are most welcome to go along and take part.
But in a changing day and age, you might not have as much time on your hands, so to this aim there is a proposed new satellite club which will meet in the evening.
It will be a flexible club, and you will have the opportunity to meet like minded people in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Indeed, the Rotary raise money and provide help for many local charities and organisations including Largs BB Band, Help for Heroes, Ayrshire Hospice, Community Garden, Prostate Cancer, the Beatson, Mary's Meals and Largs Horticultural Society.
For more than a century Rotary has supported major international and local projects.
Rotary is part of an international network which helps communities achieve lasting change both through funding and also hands on assistance, but it is also a global force for good.
Most notable has been its campaign to eradicate polio in the third world with the number of cases having reduced from 350,000 a year to just 22 reported in the last year.
The Rise against Hunger campaign sees food bags containing rice, soya, lentils and vitamins heat sealed and boxed, with each bag capable of feeding a family of six in Kenya.
Ian said: "Our aim was to pack 75,000 bags, we exceeded our target by 384 bags. each bag is capable of feeding a family of six therefore over 450,000 people will be fed in Kibera Kenya as a result of our efforts on the west coast of Scotland."
Then the Shelter Box campaign with family tent, solar lights, water purification unit, cooking equipment and more is provided for areas of devastation around the world.
With many experienced individuals on board the Largs Rotary, it is a good time to find out more and learn about the far reaching voluntary efforts, and play your own part in these achievements.
