About District 25
One of the best ways to get a flavour of who we are is to read our District Magazine. Grab a drink and take a seat.
Who we are
Our district is made up of nine clubs that range across the Surrey and Sussex counties. We have Midhurst and Petworth at one end and Seaford at the other. All nine clubs meet regularly, organising their own programmes which include speakers on topics of interest and social and service activities that help the local community.
Who we support
We support a wide range of charities and community groups; these can be small projects that individual clubs have chosen to support, to larger national and international organisations.
District Chairman Katharine has chosen ‘Children on the Edge’ as her charity for this year. Children on the Edge or COTE for short, is a child rights organisation created to support the world’s most marginalised children living in some of the toughest situations. They envision a world in which every child thrives regardless of their geography, ethnicity, gender or caste. They work to create conditions in which every marginalised child can flourish and and thrive no matter where they live and irrespective of the challenging circumstances they face.
They place children at the heart of everything they do by working hand-in-hand with local communities to restore hope, dignity and justice: and actively involve everyone in creating transformation. If you would like to find out more. please click on the link http://childrenontheedge.org
