The Rotary Club of Ascot principally provides support to well-known local community activities and raises money for local and international causes. With a motto 'Service Above Self'', its main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace and around the world. There are 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide in 34,000 Rotary Clubs in nearly every country. It is not affiliated with any political or religious organisations.

Locally, it is particularly well-known for organising the hugely popular New Year's Day Sunninghill Wheelbarrow Race, which in 2016, raised over £8,000 to donate to the Ascot District Day Centre and other charities. (The Club has also contributed to the purchasing of two new mini buses, used for transport to the Day Centre).  See PHOTOS OF WHEELBARROW RACE winners 2017.

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is one of 47 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK to achieve the shared aim of securing a better future for wildlife.

BBOWT was founded in 1959 (as the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Naturalist Trust -  BBONT) by local ecologists who could see the extent of harm being done to the wonderfully rich natural environment of the three counties. For over 50 years we have worked with local people to make Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire richer in wildlife.

BBOWT currently has about 54,000 members and more than 1,300 active volunteers. It is thanks to our members and volunteers that we are able to keep going - we do not receive any core governmental funding. Our income comes from a range of sources including grants, legacies, business support and charitable trusts donations, but most important of all are our membership subscriptions......
