Mix96 2nd Annual Pancake Race in Aylesbury; It's the taking part that counts!

Rtn Sarah Fraser, Rtn Bill Russell, Alan Mwale, Councillor Michael Beall
Rotary is about supporting your community and on Pancake Day in Aylesbury this means being a relay team that competes in the town centre in a knockout competition where you run flipping a pancake while doing a few laps up and down Kingsbury Square. As they say, it's all about taking part... The local radio station, Mix96 sponsor the event and it's great fun. The winners, Noodle Nation were young, fit, and no doubt spent some time in the kitchen practising their technique.

Money raised on the day went to Tiggiwinkles Animal Hospital.

If you want to support your community in ways like this, be part of a team, and would like to know more about how to join us, then please read more about us, or contact us by email.

Sponsored leadership devt weekend - RYLA 2014 - Applications open for Aylesbury

Rotary Young Leader Award 2014
Friday 13 June - Sunday 15th June 2014
RAF  Henlow

Each year a group of 18 - 30 year olds are sponsored by Rotary Clubs across Beds, Herts, and Bucks for a weekend of a lifetime. Its no holiday. The tagline "Be prepared for the unexpected" speaks for itself. Everyone we have sponsored from Aylesbury has come back saying they have new confidence, learnt something about themselves, discovered new team building skills. learnt how to make decisions under pressure, solve problem they didn't know were problems and found out they really were a leader.

Are you an employer and have you someone 18 - 30 you'd like to send on this adventure?
As you someone you'd like to nominate yourself?

We pay the costs of the weekend itself - you need to get yourself there and take some old outdoor clothes. The rest is covered.


We believe in this program and will sponsor a number of places though they do go fast.

Send us an email as to why you're interested - we'll send you an application form which is not very complicated. Fill this in asap and then we organise for you to meet up with a Rotarian - or you can come along to one of our Monday evening meetings for the approval rubber stamping bit.

Don't miss out.

Send the email now.

PS: We don't tell you too much about what actually happens on the weekend other than it it run by the RAF, it is a lot of out doors stuff, done in teams, hard work, fun, challenging and rewarding...!
The information provided to candidates can be found here, in case you want to have a look.  But feel free to contact us to have a chat.
