Join us as a volunteer

If your time is limited right now making Membership impractical, or you simply want to get involved in the action  doing  interesting and rewarding projects, then  volunteer with us.  You can make a difference to your local community and beyond and have great fun at the same time.  If you are a business in Winchester we can partner with you to provide volunteer projects for your workforce.

Together with colleagues in Salisbury Rotary we organise the amazing Clarendon Marathon each year and we need volunteers to carry out all sorts of tasks to support that. During the Covid Pandemic we brought together a significant number of community volunteers to help us support the NHS to run a major vaccination location on the outskirts of Winchester

This is what  Phill Jennison said about volunteering at the Clarendon Marathon:

“I had taken part in Marathons before, but never marshalled. I was asked one day if I’d like to Marshall, and I said “yes”, as you do… I was subsequently asked if I would act as a Section Leader for Broughton to Kings Somborne. As I knew the area well, I said “yes”. but what had I let myself in for? We’ll actually, it turned into an amazing experience. The 25 volunteer marshalls all turned up on the day, in spite of the weather. No one left their positions early, even though they must have been really wet and cold.”

Note from the editor: Despite Phill’s comment about the weather. Although “The Clarendon” as we refer to it, is always run on the first Sunday in October, the weather is quite often very good 😊

Returning to Phill’s story:

“What I hadn’t appreciated was the detailed planning and communication which has to be in place for, the event to work smoothly. As I was responsible for marshalls in three locations, I knew I needed help, and thankfully, three amazing volunteers offered to be co-ordinators in their respective locations… it worked a treat.”
