Serving the community - locally and wordwide.

The Rotary Club of Heckmondwike & District was formed in 1931 and has been serving the local community and getting involved in international projects ever since.

We are a small and friendly club and welcome new members who share an interest in helping others and enjoy the friendship of others. Rotary members are fun-loving and active volunteers from business and the professions who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas.

Helping Charities

Over the last year the club has raised money for many charities including Kirkwood Hospice, Macmillan Nurses, Farm Africa, Children's Air Ambulance and many others.

The main fund raising event is our annual Classic Car Rally with over 70 vehicles gathering for a run through the lovely Yorkshire countryside to iconic venues for prize-giving. Other fund raising events have included a Christmas grotto and stalls, parties, barbeques and formal dinners.

Roberttown Information Board

9 May 2019

Members of the club at Roberttown Jubilee Garden

The Jubilee Garden on Church Road, Roberttown has been refurbished and is now looking great again. It has new planting, new bench, a Roll of Honour Board and a large information board telling the history of places and events that have occurred in Roberttown.

The work was commissioned by the Roberttown Residents Group and carried out by Spen Valley Civic Society and our club are pleased to have been involved by fully funding the cost of producing the information board.

Five of our members braved the wet weather to attend the re-opening and dedication of the garden today which we are sure will be a great asset to the village.
