The Rotary Club of Thornbury
President Ben Bradley
President 2015/16
Thornbury Rotary Club has contributed to the life of the town and surrounding district since 1971. In that time it has raised around £400,000 and donated it to many local, national and international charities, projects and appeals.
For almost 30 years its Swimarathon has annually attracted hundreds of swimmers to a sports and social event which is the Club's major fund-raiser, and its high-visibility yellow jackets are a familiar sight at food fairs, the Carnival and many other local events.

The Club makes donations to charities and needy causes large and small - anything from international and national disaster appeals, famine relief funds and medical aid projects to small donations to local groups or charities in need of short-term financial help.
Each President chooses two Charities to provide focus for fund-raising - especially the Swimarathon. President Ben Bradley's choices - both Bristol-based - are the Jessie May Trust and the National Eye Research Centre

Jessica May died at home aged 4 1/2 months surrounded by her family and supported by a team of nurses. Her parents created Jessie May to ensure that every child who is not expected to reach adulthood receives nursing care at home.

The National Eye Research Centre funds research into the causes and treatments of eye disease, sight loss and blindnesss. Its vision is a world in which there is an effective treatment for every eye disease.
Swimarathon 2016 will take place on March 4th, 5th and 6th at the Thornbury Leisure Centre.
