​As with a new Rotary year, a new president is chosen and with this comes the choice of charities to support for 2018 & 2019. President Dan Kershaw has made the difficult decision this year of choosing the charities he wishes the club to support. Dan has taken these decisions partly from his other volunteering activities but also as a collective it it great to have some consistency year on year. There are so many charities to choose from, this is one of the hardest decisions a president has to make in their year!

Gloucester Quays each year chooses 3 main charities to support. One local, one national and one international. This allows us to focus our efforts globally and not just locally, helping as many people as we can.

Local Charity
Rotary in Gloucester Community Awards

Rotary in Gloucester Community Awards are organised by the four Rotary Clubs in the city – Gloucester, Rotary@Kingsholm, Gloucester Severn, and Gloucester Quays. The aim of the Community Awards programme is to support organisations within the city area with a small grant which 'will make a real difference'. This is a small grants programme with awards of up to a maximum of £500.


National Charity
Great Western Air Ambulance

Our Critical Care teams stand ready to save the lives of local people. We provide emergency care to people who are in a state so critical that they require the specialist skills of our team at the scene of the accident or medical incident. Though we are part of the regional 999 response service and work closely with NHS hospitals, we are a charity entirely funded by local people just like you. GWAAC saves lives across Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and surrounding areas.


International Charity
Shelter Box

Right now, around 85 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural disaster and conflict. We're working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we're transforming despair into hope.
