Rotary Club helps transform Church Street Ward


Last week saw the launch of a video celebrating and documenting the work of the Rotary Club in the Church Street Ward of Marylebone.

Alongside the Landmark Hotel and several generous donations the Rotary Club, lead by Margaret Pollock, have pioneered fifteen different community projects that have resulted in vast improvements of families and children across the ward.

The focus of the work has been on three main initiatives;

  • The Core Trust, an innovative alcohol misuse treatment centre providing a secure, safe and supportive environment.
  • The Four Feathers Youth Club, after losing funding the Rotary Club and the Landmark Hotel stepped in to keep this vital lifeline open.
  • Newpin Drama Tots, offering interactive play for toddlers who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Rotary in London has now captured on film the sterling work secured by Margaret Pollock, Past President of the Rotary Club of St Marylebone, in a 7-minute video that is being mailed to every major British-based corporate, and small to medium-sized enterprises, with the aim of encouraging them to partner with their local Rotary club to bring similar benefits to hard-pressed communities.

This work by both the Landmark Hotel and the Rotary Club has helped transform Church Street Ward. To get involved with this innovative venture right on Marylebone’s doorstep visit the Rotary Club website. The video can be seen by clicking here.
