Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside

Being a Rotarian is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside has been supporting the Bishopdale Burnside and Greater Christchurch community for over 48 years with a number of projects and fundraising events.

We welcome enquiries from interested persons who wish to learn more about Rotary.

We also welcome visiting Rotarians to our meetings.

Members gather for fellowship at our venue which is the Quality Hotel Elms at about 5.30 pm each Monday for a 6 pm meal.

After a dinner a short business section commences at 6.30 pm which is generally followed by a speaker who addresses the club on a topic of interest to Rotary.

Meetings generally finish at 7.30 pm.

Big shout out to those businesses that are supporting our BOOKarama 2022 by hosting our collection bins on their premises. Many of the staff assist our team of volunteers who are collecting books sometimes 2 or 3 times a day by advising when bins are full, carefully stacking donated books, records, dvd's, cd's or jigsaws into trolleys or boxes awaiting their collection. In addition they will bring inside at the end of the day and likewise shift the collections bins to their location.We are still seeking good quality items and our collection bins will be onsite until the 30th of June so still time to clean out the bookshelf and drop off your items.Remember our BOOKarama event is the 8th-10th July 2022 at the YMCA Recreation Centre at Bishopdale Mall. Opens 10am daily For locations of our collection bins go to bishopdale-burnside-rotary.com/bookarama-2022/ ... See MoreSee Less

One Rotarian who visited said" I was amazed to learn so much more about Rotary and the great projects we have undertaken in NZ." The response has been terrific and the staff at the Library are delighted to see people taking the time to read the 15 banners. If you are in Christchurch go along and take a moment.
