The Club raises over £38,000 from the Rotary Dorset Bike Ride in aid of Cancer Research UK

The Rotary Club of Wareham organised their annual Rotary Dorset Bike Ride in aid Cancer Research UK on 7th September

This year was the 3rd Rotary Dorset Bike Ride in aid of Cancer Research UK which has grown in popularity each year from 350 riders in the first year, 480 last year and 660 riders this year. There were rides for all levels with 100, 75, 50, 30, 20 and 10 mile routes. The feedback from those that took part was excellent and everybody thought the event was very well organised with great routes through country lanes, excellent marshalling and free refreshment stops and a great venue for the start and finish.

The club would like to thank all those that took part, especially those that raised sponsorship for their ride. They would also like to thanks the Friends of Rotary and the Rotary Clubs of Dorchester, Bridport and Swanage & Purbeck who helped marshal and run the event.

A special thanks to the local companies that supported the event including Cyclexperience, The Westover Group, Springfield Country Hotel, The Dorset Golf and Country Club, Humphries Kirk Solicitors, Corbens Estate Agent, Sainsbury of Wareham, Tesco of Dorchester, Waitrose of Bridport, Morrison’s of Bridport, Dorset Cereals and Longthorns Farm and Campsite who provided such an excellent venue for the event.    

Next year’s event is to be held on Sunday 6th September – something to add to your diary. If you would like a reminder about the event nearer the time, you can request one at

Christmas Carol Collection….1st TO  5th December

Every year The Wareham Rotary Club decorate a truck with Angels, Lights and Christmas images and with loud speakers sounding out lively Carols announcing the countdown to Christmas.

We plan to drive the streets of Northmoor on 1st and 2nd December, Wareham on 3rd and Wool 4th and 5th December, with our own Father Christmas in tow to meet the children, wide eyed with amazement and wonder.

On Thursday 4th we park outside the Red Lion in Wareham from 9am- 1pm and hope we bring joy and gladness to the shoppers with wonderful Christmas Carols.

We are collecting money for our much needed worthwhile local causes and wishing everyone the happiest of Christmases, so we knock on every household and hope we get an answer.

Christmas Eve Carols at Hyde Place, Wool

We also put up a tree outside the warden controlled Residence at Hyde Place in Wool at 5:45pm on Christmas Eve which we decorate with lights and hold a short service with Carols followed by Punch and Mince Pies! We also expect Father Christmas will turn up. Always a great favourite occasion with the Wool and other local residents. Please come along.
