The Rotary Club of Ascot Inc was chartered in February 1969 and sponsored by the Rotary Club of Belmont. Our club is located in the southern metropolitan region covering the locality of Carlisle and surrounding areas. We have had the privilege of 4 of our club members serving as District Governors.
 
Our club of 22 members is a small part of the 1.2 million Rotary International members worldwide, but over the last 45 years the club has achieved a lot through the five avenues of service as well as raising funds for many projects.  An example of projects run over the last 40 plus years include:
  • Widows' Camps in the 1970s
  • A ‘My Fair Lady’ grooming program for high school girls
  • Financing the purchase of humidicribs for a maternity hospital in India 
  • Sponsoring of team of surgeons to go to Tanzania for Interplast  (Find out more here)
  • Library and equipment for a school in Pencasari, Bali. 
  • Business Card Project (Get your officially-branded Rotary Business Cards here) raising funds for The Rotary Foundation (Find out more about the Rotary Foundation here)
  • Local community programmes with Grandcare including Christmas Hampers, Kids in the Kitchen and an Easter Picnic. 
  • Donation of Waterwise books to a local School for Brains help Drains project

  • Sponsoring of many district youth projects including Exchange students, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) and Handicamp (for more information about any of these, and other youth and other projects supported by our local district in Western Australia, District 9465, click here, and look under the Projects tab.)
The Club has also set up the Arthur Bray Memorial Fund, the main purpose of which is to help provide opportunities for the youth of Western Australia with educational and developmental opportunities otherwise denied to them by lack of funding. For more information regarding this fund, click here.
