Chelwood Bridge 2022 Big Breakfast

For the last 15 years, apart from 2020 lockdown year, Chelwood Bridge Rotary has run the Big Breakfast serving some 1500 breakfasts and raising over £15,000 for charity. However the Big Breakfast 2022 on the 10th July will sadly be our final one, so a very special day not to be missed. We will be joined during the morning by the local Classic Car Club using the breakfast as the start point for their rally. Book early to avoid disappointment by telephoning 07983720405 or email

In return for your generous sponsorship, we will forward you two complimentary tickets for every £100 sponsored, and you will also receive free advertising as a sponsor in the race night programme and you’ll get to select your business-related names for the race or horses/jockeys to promote your business.

There are also opportunities to advertise in the Race Programme for the evening, please email if you would like to discuss this option.

COVID has meant that we have been unable to host any events over the past 2 years, therefore, our fundraising efforts have been put on hold and we are very much looking forward to hosting this event to raise much needed funds for Rotary charities and the communities of Midsomer Norton and Radstock.

Thanking you very much in anticipation of your support.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Midsomer Norton and Radstock.

Water Survival Box – aid to Ukraine

WSB Thursday 24th March – Our second consignment of aid providing requested items for families affected by the war in Ukraine left the warehouse of WSB today.  It will become part of a much larger lorry load of ‘medical equipment and specified items’ being provided by Rotary in England and coordinated by our District Governor Michael Fernando and President Lyndon Brett of the Bridgwater Rotary Club. Our contribution comprises three pallets of toothpaste, toothbrushes and solar lamps (total value in excess of £15,000) and was organised and paid for by the Chelwood Bridge Rotary charity (Water Survival Box Ltd). In the longer term we will be sending 200 Water Survival Boxes – for families that have lost everything – for distribution in Ukraine or one of the bordering countries such as Poland by the International Medical Corps with whom we have partnered in response to four previous disasters. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many Rotarian supporters of Water Survival Box Ltd for their much needed financial help. For without your support none of this would have been possible. Thank you.
