Rotary Youth Service

Rotary International tends to classify anyone under 30 years old as youth. To this end, although we tend to work with school aged children we are more than happy to engage, assist and work with anyone with connections to youth.

 

We organise; competitions throughout the year, choirs for our other events, Dictionary4life, RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) and the Angels Ball.

 

We are working to raise the profile of Rotary within the younger community, breaking down stereo types and show that when working together we can achieve great things. Growing confidence and providing support where we can for younger people.

 

We meet every Wednesday at

Hamiltons, Babbacombe Downs

18.00 for 18.15 start.

 

A vibrant club with a modern approach

Charities for 2019

You can find out more about The Lions Barber Collective at

www.thelionsbarbercollective.com

The Lions Barber Collective is an international collection of top barbers which have come together to help raise awareness for the prevention of suicide.

It all stemmed from a comment on a Facebook group and within 6 weeks we had our first appearance at The Great British Barber Bash in Liverpool where members of the pride donated their time to demonstrate their skills and raise awareness about the mission of BarberTalk as well as the charities we work alongside Papyrus and Pieta House in the UK and Ireland.

 

Suicide is THE biggest killer in young people, over 1,600 people take their lives every year, in the UK somebody takes their life every 120 minutes.Three quarters of these shocking statistics are men.

 

This effects so many, either directly or indirectly.

 

As barbers we are in a unique position to help our clients, through the trust and bond we build with them. An incredibly strong relationship where clients become friends and can share aspect of their lives with us, then walk out the shop and leave it behind knowing it goes no further because of client confidentiality and the fact we are often not in their social circle.
