Welcome to the Polar Plunge for BEL Rotary Club

Rotary Club of Bridgenorth-Ennismore-Lakefield

Welcome to the BEL Rotary 44th Annual Polar Plunge Donation Site 



We're back! Join us on Sunday, February 4th, 2024 at 2pm as we take the plunge in support of local charities and the BEL Rotary club.

Raise money for your favorite charity and the work of BEL Rotary.  As in previous years, all donations will be a 50/50 split.



Over the past 43 years we have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for for charities and local organizations. Please join us and support your community!

We thank you for your past, and ongoing, participation. As we move out of the pandemic it seems now more than ever our community needs our support.  Your support makes a difference.  Local programs sponsored by the BEL Rotary Club include the festive season “adopt a family” support of the local food banks, Chemong Community Care drop in, and the continued development and enhancement of Rotary Park and stewardship of the Bridgenorth Trail.  We are currently cooperating with Community Care in Ennismore and Lakefield to assemble gift bags of food and supplies for seniors living in difficult circumstances and will be working with the local food banks as part of our food security initiative.  Next spring we will be once again in Rotary Park for our annual clean up and the development of our pollinator garden.  We are actively involved in the eradication of Polio world-wide and continue to support educational opportunities for children across the globe.  Most recently we have provided support to those most affected by the war in Ukraine.  This is all possible thanks YOU and the support of our community. 

Is your charity of choice not listed? Send an email to our Rotary Club and they will be added.
