About Rotary

Rotary is an international organisation comprised of over 34,000 clubs in more than 200 countries with 1.2 million members. It is non-religious, non-political and welcomes all business people, professionals and community leaders of all ages who want to help the less fortunate both at home and abroad.

Bringing like-minded people together on a regular basis also fosters friendships and that is a big part of what Rotary is about. Social events are held regularly and having fun is all part of being a Rotarian as you can see from some of the recent events at our club.

Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects locally, nationally and internationally and also partners with many charities worldwide. Members initiate projects which address the needs of their local communities such as running food banks or fundraising for their local children's hospice.

 

Rotary at Home

Rotary clubs are autonomous and determine service projects based on local needs. By combining their skills and resources our members are able to make a real contribution to the lives of others.

Rotary members volunteer their time to serve their local communities through activities such as supporting community events, running educational programmes, supporting local businesses or helping out at events such as music festivals, marathons, etc.

Rotarians organise national competitions in music, cookery, photography, public speaking and citizenship to help young people improve their skills.

Clubs raise hundreds and often thousands of pounds for community projects and local charities.

Because of Rotary's vast international geographical spread we are in the unique position to be able to organise exchange projects which enable foreign students and young people to experience life and culture in this country and give the chance for locals to do the same abroad.

Some of the things that we have helped with are:
