Welcome to 2020 Our Xmas activities were a great success - we were able to take Santa's Sleigh around the streets (without the collections) on 5 of the planned 9 nights (covering 10 of the usual 18 routes). The Sleigh also visited the Children's Trust on a couple oif occasions. Santa had an online Grotto and welcomed many kids to it. This included several sessions with the Sutton Women's Centre, with whom we have been working in 2020.

Rotary's Vision - "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves."
About Cheam and Sutton Rotary
It is amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together. Rotary Clubs consist of members from different countries, cultures, and occupations and these leaders of society are taking action to enhance health, empower youth, promote peace, and advance their community, all round the world.
Our membership is made up of active, enthusiastic men and women of all ages and backgrounds who, by combining their skills and resources, make a real contribution to the lives of others both locally and internationally.
Cheam and Sutton Rotary is a part of Rotary International, a worldwide organisation founded over 110 years ago, based on the principles of friendship, service to the community and the promotion of peace and international understanding.
As a result of Cheam and Sutton Clubs deciding to merge in 2016, Cheam and Sutton Rotary is a new club with a long history. Sutton Rotary dates back to 1923 and gave birth to Cheam Rotary in 1955. Both clubs have supported many local charities over the years of their existence and they have now merged for a wider footprint in the community.
Rotary’s May Fair takes place on the Bank Holiday Monday in late May. It is Sutton and Cheam's largest community event, though had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.
During December, every year, our Santa Float brings seasonal cheer and joy to the streets of Cheam, Sutton and Worcester Park. Our Mulled Wine and Mince Pie Evenings are popular events and fundraisers during Cheam and Worcester Park’s Christmas Evenings
We also raise funds by collecting outside local supermarkets. We are grateful to Morrisons and Sainsbury’s in Sutton and North Cheam for giving us this opportunity. Thanks to the generosity of the residents of Sutton, Cheam and Worcester Park in December 20l8 and throughout the 2018/19 Rotary year we have raised £30,000, all of which have been donated to local charities.
