We’re proud supporters of all things community at 24 fingers, and the belief in collaboration is at the core of everything we do. So you can imagine how delighted we were when Emma Goode joined the Rotary Club of Brentwood à Becket as an associate member.
On Monday 30th November, Emma became a member of Brentwood à Becket Rotary Club in a short ceremony during the club’s weekly meeting on Zoom when President Peter McAllister and members welcomed her into the club.
“I’m thrilled to have joined the Brentwood à Becket Rotary Club, and can’t wait to get involved in the great work it does, supporting local businesses and charities,” said Emma. “I’m really looking forward to becoming an active member of the club and doing my bit for the local community.”
Membership Chairman Ivan Armstrong said: “We are delighted that Emma has joined Rotary. When I first met her through the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce, I could see that Emma could be a great asset to Rotary, with her warmth and enthusiasm to help her community and that she would enjoy being in Rotary.”
Brentwood à Becket is part of a worldwide organisation of over 1.2 million people with over 50,000 members in the UK alone. They all share the desire to work together to take action to bring lasting change in their communities , across the globe and in themselves, summed up by the motto “Service above Self”. At the same time, they build lasting friendships, use and develop their skills and relationships with other business people.
In Brentwood, the club is best known for the organisation of the Brentwood Half Marathon which has grown over 38 years to a major event with over 4,000 runners and has raised well over £1million. Because of the pandemic, 2021 will be the first year the event has not taken place but, for 2022 and beyond, the club is looking to find new partners to share the load of what is now a major year-long undertaking.
Rotary can also provide the opportunity for smaller businesses to expand their community involvement. Although the pandemic has restricted some of the community service and fund raising that Brentwood à Becket would normally be doing it has not stopped them providing much needed funding to local charities to adapt to the effect on their clients and services. At the same time support has been provided for recent international emergencies.
Brentwood à Becket is a lively, active and successful club with a growing membership and, in more normal times, it meets weekly at the Marygreen Manor. Meetings will be held on Zoom until they are able to return there. If you want to learn more, you can contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
