Swimarathon returns after last year's Covid-forced cancellation
Thornbury Rotary is delighted to announce that its annual fund-raising community event will return in March 2022. In its 25 years Swimarathon has raised well over £400,000, the majority of which has been donated to local and regional charities and community causes. Find full information via the panel (right).
Walkathon 2021 was a huge success thanks to the massive support by our community, who "walked for Thornbury" in great numbers, raising over £10,000. As a result, the Rotary Club will be repeating the event later on in 2022.

Iron Lung
Supporting Local, National and World-Wide Charities
The unprecedented restrictions imposed by the Covid pandemic restricted the Club's ability to raise and donate funds, or to offer support within our community or the wider world.
Its COVID-19 Appeal raised over £3,500 and distributed it to many local charities volunteer groups who were in urgent need of support. The Walkathon "socially distanced" community event raised a further £10,000 for local needs, JIGSAW Thornbury being the principal beneficiary.
As some semblence of normality returns, the Club looks forward to resuming its local activities in and beyond Thornbury.
