About Us

The Rotary Club of Banstead 

Banstead Rotary is well known for the help it gives to local groups together with its International charity work. With public help and support we usually raise in the area of £20,000 each year.

We work to support local groups and charities, raising much needed funds through our Christmas collections and other activities through the year.

We run the Banstead Village Fair on the first Saturday in July each year which gives these local organisations opportunity to showcase what they do and to raise more money for themselves.  About 30 groups take part.

Why we're raising money

Our Charity Walk on 8th May 2022 is the first since 2019.

We are aiming to help both Rotary charities and Charities identified by walkers.

Sadly Covid-19 and lockdowns have taken their toll.  The sponsored walk on 8th May 2022 is an ideal opportunity to get out there and enjoy our beautiful countryside while raising much needed funds for beleaguered charities who have lost so much during these difficult times.

Walkers wanting to raise funds for their chosen charities simply enter the name on their application form and at least 85% of funds raised by them will be paid to this nominated recipient. This can be a school, club, youth group, church or any other registered charity. The remaining 15% will go to Rotary charities.

Team Dyscover (Banstead Rotary Charity Walk)

A team of Dyscover staff, trustees and volunteers and friends are taking part in the Banstead Rotary Charity Walk on Sunday 8th May to raise vital funds to support Dyscover's work providing long-term support and opportunities to people with aphasia and their families. Aphasia is a neurological condition, acquired through stroke, brain injury or rare form of dementia and is very isolating and frustrating. Aphasia affects a person's communication, including their ability to find words, construct sentences and to understand language, both written and spoken. Dyscover works to inform, support and empower people with aphasia to manage their communication disability and to reengage with life. They create an aphasia friendly community in which people feel included, valued and have a sense of purpose. They offer structured, therapeutic group sessions to over 80 adults per week, either at centres in Leatherhead and Kingston or through online groups which were developed during lockdown. For more information please see www.dyscover.org.uk"Its getting better all the time...Dyscover has helped me to cope with my frustration and find space and time to communicate my needs""It was like turning a light on. Coming to Dyscover has helped me to improve my communication skills, regain confidence and a zest for life"Please do support our amazing team to and help us make a difference to the lives of people with aphasia. 85% of the money that we raise money will go to Dyscover and the rest of the money will go to other great local charities supported by Banstead Rotary. Thank you very much for your support!

Striding out to support Surrey's unpaid carers

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid. - NHSAs a registered charity, Crossroads Care Surrey (www.crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk) support more than 2,000 carers and their families in the county, please help us to support more.We support unpaid carers in Surrey by providing respite breaks so a carer can have time away from their usual caring role. This enables a hardworking carer to have a few hours to themselves to relax and recharge, knowing their loved one is being cared for by one of our professional, qualified Carer Support Workers. Our recent survey of our carers in Surrey found that 7 in 10 often feel lonely in their caring role. A visit by a Carer Support Workers can also provide a carer with the opportunity to leave their home environment for a few hours to take part in sport, leisure or social activities to improve their overall emotional wellbeing."Thank you so much to all of you at Crossroads for this wonderful gift of time and care. I cannot thank you enough. We are very grateful and appreciate all the care and kindness that we are surrounded by. I cannot speak highly enough of them all. These two mornings mean so much to me and I am truly grateful." A daughter who is a carer for her two elderly and disabled parents.The Crossroads Care Surrey team (including staff, volunteers, supporters and carers) are striding out together to raise money to support unpaid carers by providing funding for more vital respite breaks and to fund care clubs in the community for people with more complex care needs.Please help us make a difference to the lives of unpaid carers by your sponsorship, thank you.
