The two biggest events, Billericay Christmas Market and Billericay Summerfest, have operational groups to lead the events that report into the main fundraising committee. The other events, that include quiz nights, Dinner Dances, Music in the Garden, Carol evenings and many others, are run by members of the committee. The funds raised are placed in the club’s charity account, which is subject to audit by the Charity Commission.

Service Projects Committee
The Service Projects Committee is responsible for the dispersement of charity funds raised by the Fundraising Committee. Each of the good causes supported by the club is reviewed by members of the committee against criteria set by Rotary International. This committee is also responsible for applications to the Rotary Foundation Charity, which will match funds raised by the club and, depending on the fund applied to, can double the contribution made by the club. The Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower has been very successful in recent years at making these applications.
The members of the Service Projects Committee this year are:
Paul Harris Fellow (with Sapphire), President 1996-97, Founder Member
