Lansdowne Woodward director becomes president of the Rotary Club of Poole

As a business, we’ve been proud partners of the Rotary Club of Poole since 2017. Recently, two of the local clubs have joined forces to create a larger, more dynamic club, while continuing their support for communities both here and overseas. In these difficult times, this long-standing tradition of service is more important than ever.

The Rotary Club of Poole Bay formed as an offshoot of Poole in 1984 and has re-joined the Rotary Club of Poole. Liam Wyatt, our director, is thrilled to be the incoming president of the club.

He says: “I am delighted to be president of this fantastic club in its 99th year. With the help of our many business partners, we aim to support the local community by providing youth services and volunteering for various events. The club has recently supported the Poole food bank and we will continue to put on popular events such as the Rotary Santa train.”

Liam has also recently formed the BCP Rotary group, which is putting on evening activities for youths over the summer holidays. These activities will expose them new sports and give them the opportunity to learn life skills such as cooking and lifeguarding.

At Lansdowne Woodward, we firmly believe in giving back to the local community – and it’s not just through the Rotary Club that we are doing this. We also helped to raise over £3,500 this year for the BC Club (which Liam is a member of). This money went to Variety Wessex and helped to pay for a children’s Christmas party.

If anyone would like to get involved in any of our charitable causes, please email Liam: liam@lwinsurance.co.uk
