Paul Temple:-


Basingstoke Deane Rotary continues to support the work that other local charities and local groups do to improve the lives of people living in the borough.  That support may be financial, by hands on support or just by raising the their profile by publicising the good work that they are doing for our community. This month we are highlighting The Pink Place together with the Blue Space. Also the good fundraising The Ark Riders have done for The Ark Cancer Centre charity and are this year doing for The Camrose Centre for the Homeless and the vulnerably housed.

Calling all Golfers

The Pink Place and Blue Space Cancer Charity, a local charity providing FREE support & wellbeing services to adults affected by cancer is holding a Charity Golf Day on 17th June 2022

The Ark Riders

This group of cyclists first got together in 2015 to ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End. Since then as The Ark Riders they have raised funds for The Ark Cancer Centre Charity and other Charities. Their fundraising has continued and this year sees them riding –

They will be riding to raise funds for The Camrose Centre, a drop-in service dedicated to providing support and assistance to the homeless, vulnerably housed, and socially isolated in Basingstoke and Deane.

Basingstoke Festival of Transport

Sunday 8th May 2022

After a long Covid wait we had wonderful weather and a great day in the Memorial Park back in September ’21, with hundreds of vehicles and thousands of happy people enjoying the sunshine.
It’s a great day out and Rotary look forward to welcoming you on Sunday 8th May 2022 at this FREE family event (Small charge to Park on the Common)
See our website to register your vehicle

Last year we were grateful for the support of some 80 volunteers to make this event a great success. If you fancy being part of our team and joining in the fun contact Paul on the link above


Basingstoke Deane Rotary is a group of 35 men & women from a wide variety of backgrounds. All live locally in the borough but some commute to work outside Basingstoke. Most joined Rotary to help others less fortunate, and they find Basingstoke Deane Rotary adds another extremely enjoyable dimension to their lives.
