ROTARY CLUB OF HYTHE – OUR FIRST “MILLION STEPS CHALLENGE 2021” – PLEASE HELP SUPPORT US!

On 21st June 2021, 10 Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Hythe will attempt to walk a total of 1,000,000 steps over 10 days between them.

As we are aware, all charities have suffered hugely as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic which has meant that their funds have become depleted.

Our “Million Steps Challenge 2021” will be raising funds for the Hythe and Saltwood Branch of the Royal British Legion, which is celebrating its Centennial this year and whatever we raise in this challenge will go entirely to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Please do consider supporting us with your donation by visiting our secure Justgiving website at:  https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/millionsteps  . The minimum donation is just £2.

You may also like to support us by talking to us when you see any of us walking by the local areas of Hythe, including the Town centre on occasions and we will be easily identifiable as we will be wearing our specially designed Rotary sashes for this challenge. Thank you and we can walk as well as talk!

75th +1 Anniversary Celebrations

The celebrations planned for last year had to be cancelled due to Covid 19 lockdown restrictions but this summer, to celebrate their 75th + 1 Anniversary, the Society is planning a Heritage Week, running from 13th to 22nd August, to highlight the town’s history.  This will include photographs of ‘Old Hythe’ in the windows of High Street premises and beyond, self-guided heritage walks, plus a concert and talk in St Leonard’s Church.  They also plan the reintroduction of ‘Beating the Bounds’ in spring 2022.  Watch this space and keep your eyes on social media and the press for details.
