The Rotaract Club of Langley and Iver was formed in 1975 by our sponsoring club, the Rotary Club of Langley and Iver.
It is estimated that during our history the Langley and Iver Rotaract club has had over 500 members, raised over £50,000 for good causes and done thousands of man-hours of voluntary work.
Our annual calendar of events usually includes two major fundraising events, one of which is usually a themed party, as well as regular trips to, amongst others, the pub, bowling alley, cinema, theatre and restaurants. We also regularly attend events hosted by other surrounding clubs.
Our activities aren't just restricted to the general Slough area with trips to Russia, Germany and, errrm, Yorkshire taking place in recent years, with a trip to Ireland in the pipeline.
The club also has close links with our neighbouring Rotary Clubs and assist with events such as the Uxbridge Auto Show, Heathrow Family Day, Langley Carnival and our sponsoring club's annual night hike Moonraker.
The past year saw us hosting several charity events, including a cinema night at Pinewood Studios, a "Charity Craft Fayre and Family Fun Day" in Iver and several quizzes, raising over £2000 for our nominated charities Shelterbox, Thames Hospicecare and Alexander Devine. With a few more events already in the pipeline let's hope next year we can go even better!
In past years we have also raised money for charities including: Crossroads, Slough Homeless, Thames Valley and Chilterns Air Ambulance, The Kamran Jabble Leukaemia Fund and Mencap.
