Club Services
This team is headed by the SVP and looks after admin rather than the charitable work of the club. For example, the Speaker Sec and Social Sec report to this team.
Community and Vocational
The name says it all. The team deals with any good cause projects – mainly local – except those handled by the more specialised  teams below.  Poppy Day collecting in the Oracle is a regular as is support for the Salvation Army. After vetting, the team helps numerous small charities many linked to the homeless and those being exploited. Our annual Santa Run is nominally part of Community Services but this large event has a team of its own. All members are expected to help on the day.
Fund Raising / Santa Run Team

This charity within the Club has built Centenary House, a seven-unit property for homeless single persons, which is managed by partner local charity Launchpad. The property produces fair rent income for the Club, which is used to support a number of grants each year. Currently RRCP is supporting Berkshire Women's Aid with expertise and funding for three new bed-sit units in Reading. Read more>
