Vocational Projects

 

Vocational Projects cover a broad range of activities aimed at developing young people and supporting vunerable people within our communities .

Alzheimer's Society Dementia Cafe

The Club supports the Alzheimer's Society in providing the Denetia Cafe at the Whittaker Lounge, Beulah Baptist Church, Rhiwbina, on the first Tuesday of each month between 2 and 4pm.

This is open to people of all ages with dementia and their carers.

The club covers the cost of hiring the lounge and members attend to provide refreshments and have a chat and has obtained support from the local Morrisons who provide all the provisions on an ongoing basis.

 

Christmas in Llanishen Village

For many years the Llanishen Rotary Club has placed a Christmas Tree in the village. 

In recent years arrangements have been put in place, working closely with local traders and the Police,  to have a switching on ceremony as part of a Christmas Celebration.

The event is supported by local Primary Schools, whose choirs perform, Melin Griffith Brass Band, pupils of Llanishen High School who help to set up and marshall the event and Morrisons who have a stall and donate the fireworks.

Supporting Good Neighbours in North Cardiff

Llanishen Rotary Club recognises the massive contribution Llanishen Good Neighbours makes to many areas of the community.

 

With the loss of grant funding from the local authority the Club has arranged fund raising activities to reduce this shortfall and to keep the organisation functioning.

Disability Sports, Gateway Boat Trip and Riverside Special School Kids Day Out

Each November Rotary stages a Disabled Sports Day in Cwmbran and we support this by selling raffle tickets at local supermarkets and by manning a penalty shoot out competition.

Gateway is a weekly club run for people with learning difficulties. Club members act as drivers and support personnel to bus them to and from club.  Llanishen with other Rotary Clubs fund an annual boat trip for the Gateway Club members on Cardiff Bay.

The annual Riverside Special School trip to Cefn Mably Farm is funded by the club.
