The Rotary Club of Knights Pendragon (RCKP) is involved in many projects which take the form of Education and Development or simply assisting others less fortunate than ourselves.
Our largest educational project is our annual Leadership Weekend designed to introduce Grade 11’s from a wide variety of backgrounds to leadership skills and the value of working with others of diverse skills and backgrounds to achieve collective objectives.
In assisting others we participate in activities such as marshalling in the “Ride for Sight” Cycle Challenge and providing a “Christmas in July” luncheon for the Gerald Fitzpatrick Home for the Aged.
Fund Raising Projects include our annual NSRI Wine Auction to raise much needed funds for the NSRI to continue operations, usually in the form of acquiring new equipment to improve their much valued life saving efforts, our annual Golf Day which assists the Bethany Home for abused mothers and Rotary’s drive to abolish polio throughout the world and serving drinks at the 1000 Bike Show to raise money for various needy organizations

The Rotary Club of Knights Pendragon has just completed (14 March 2013) our latest annual Golf Day, ably organised (yet again) by our master golfer Angelo Ferreira. This year, as in the past few years, the venue has been the Modderfontein Golf Club selected for the excellent condition of the course, the reasonable pricing offered and the excellent service that the Club offers. This year 25 Four Balls participated in a day that promised “Scattered Thunderstorms” that fortunately did not materialise and raised in excess of R40,000 that will be distributed to the Bethany Home for abuse mothers and the fight against polio via Rotary International. We trust that all those who enjoyed the day with us this year will support us again in the future.
