TW Half Marathon
For the past 28 years The Rotary Club of The Pantiles has been very actively involved with Kids Out. In more recent times we have taken pupils from Meadows School in Southborough which is a Bernodos School. This event is partly funded by the Kids Out charity, partly by our own club and partly with funds we receive from Royal Tunbridge Wells Round Table in recognition for our help in their excellent Firework Event. The event this year once again is at Chessington World of Adventure and on Wednesday 13 June.
Quicken Trust School Bus Project
The Rotary Club of the Pantiles is helping to raise money for the Quicken Trust Kabubbu Development Programme Bus Project. The Quicken Trust was founded in 1996 to tackle poverty and education in Kabubbu, Uganda. The club has been associated with the Trust since 2001 and has helped educate some of its pupils through funding educational programmes.

For a considerable number of years The Rotary Club has been helping out Royal Tunbridge Wells Round Table with their Annual Fireworks event in Dunorlan Park. Helping to set up and take down the equipment as well as manning the gates and taking the money our aid to RTWRT has been invaluable. The donations we receive for this activity have enabled us to take a large group from Meadows School, a Barnados school, on Kids Out. This charity event takes place at Chessington World of Adventure.

Fundraising day at The Nevill Golf Club Friday July 7th 2017
The Rotary Club of the Pantiles put on another splendid fundraising day at The Nevill Golf Club in Tunbridge Wells on Friday July 7th 2017. Supporting The Pickering Cancer drop-in centre, and other Rotary charities.
Renovation of Pepenbury Hut
As a club it is important to us to not only raise funds for various charities holding mixed events but to be hands on too. Over a number of years now we have actively helped to renovate the huts on the Rusthall Allotments that are used by Pepenbury Primrose Project. Starting with just basic sheds we were able to get local companies to donate various fittings and time and put together a rather splendid shop and staff rest room. We went on later to create raised beds and paved areas for easier access. In 2017 the Project moved ‘in house’ to Pepenbury in Pembury and we continued to work with them there.
