On Monday night, 24th January 2022, our President Bob Trout, our Youth Committee Chair Person Paul Helliwell and Stephen Brook our Community Service Committee Chair, presented the first of our Young Good Citizens Awards this year to Megan Rodd and what a very worthy recipient she is.

Megan is 14 years old and a leader at Rainbows, which is a section of the Guides movement for the very junior members. We presented her with her award at the Ossett Christ Church Community Hall, during a Rainbows meeting. She was unaware that she was to be given the Award until we presented it to her with her Mum, the Rainbows members and their other Guide Leaders present.

She was nominated by one of the Guide leaders who has known Megan since she started in Rainbows at the age of 5 and at that young age she undertook her first fundraising event completing a 3 mile walk raising £500!
She has completed many activities over the years; climbing Ben Nevis at 6, followed by Snowdon, many marathons and bike rides too.
Her fundraising total so far is over £30,000 which is fantastic for someone so young.
She is also an ambassador for the Pulse Radio Cash for Kids charity and runs a facebook page called Megan's Kindness Mission where, with the help of Mum and donations from the wider community, she distributed over 1,500 food parcels during the pandemic lockdowns.
A very worth recipient of the award and clear demonstration of the Rotary Ideals of "Service above Self". 
Congratulations Megan!

After a busy 9 days in the company of Santa and his Sleigh the Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix is pleased to report that generous donations of the public through our bucket collections raised over £3000.

Those moneys have been placed into our charitable Trust Fund and will be distributed to deserving causes over the next few months.

We are grateful to all who contributed and hope the sight of Santa back on our streets and outside Morrisons supermarket is an indicator of a return to normality.

On 27th October 2021 three members of The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix presented Ken Sugden and Arthur Lumb with the Club's Good Citizen Awards

Ken Sugden and Arthur Lumb have been active members of the Safe Anchor Trust for many years as well as a host of other voluntary organisations, mainly Horbury based, including The Horbury Pageant Players. Ken and Arthur's work on the canals involves maintenance and improvements such as tow path repairs, bulb planting, installation of bird and bat boxes and making and installing new benches.

Their long standing commitment in all weathers sets an exemplary example to everyone who puts service above self and the proceeds of their work is enjoyed by the residents and visitors to Horbury for many years.

Thank you to both Ken and Arthur.

We are pleased to have awarded Bev Kelly at Morrison’s with a good citizens award. This was for her tireless dedication and significant contribution to many charities over the past few years years. It is a pleasure to have worked with her and see her as a great ambassador and outstanding example to us all.


South Parade Defib web

The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix are proud to be involved with a further defibrillator installation in our area for the local public to access in the case of an emergency.

The installation is at South Parade Junior School who have kindly agreed to host the unit and be guardians of the equipment.

The defibrillator was funded from a donation by the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation (represented by Michelle Goodall from the Ossett Branch of Yorkshire Building Society). We are very grateful of their support in our community and once again we also greatly appreciate the additional support of HS Electrical Services Ltd. who installed the unit for us for free.
