Sudbury Talbot Rotary Club



For about fifty local men and women Mondays really matter. Not just because it is the start of the working week, but because it is the day that they know they can make a real difference to the community in which they live.


Who are these people? They are Sudbury Rotarians, members of the largest international fellowship of men and women in the world, dedicated to peace, understanding and service to the community. In Sudbury there are two Rotary Clubs, both meeting on Mondays. Sudbury Talbot Rotary Club meets at 7.15pm on Monday evenings, mostly at its base at Newton Green Golf Club.


In the nine years since its formation Sudbury Talbot Rotary Club has helped many local, regional and international charities and good causes. Through Rotary International, which was formed in 1905, it has contributed to the worldwide campaign for the eradication of Polio, in partnership with the World Health Organisation. It has also provided Shelter Boxes and Aquaboxes for emergency aid at times of natural and manmade disasters.


Locally Sudbury Talbot has supported: East Anglian Children’s Hospices; Support After Stroke, based at Great Cornard’s Stephenson Centre; St Nicholas Hospice; local youth groups and many more good causes large and small.


In 2008 it was Sudbury Talbot Rotarian, Valerie Goodchild, who launched the first Sudbury Rotary Young Citizen of the Year Award scheme. The search for nominees for this year’s Award will begin in the autumn.


Let Sudbury Talbot Rotary Club help you to make Mondays matter.
