Welcome to Portobello!
The Rotary Club of Portobello is part of the 1020 District which stretches from the Borders in the South, through the East of Scotland, a small but vital part of the Rotary International organisation.
At present the club has 20 members - a mixture of men and women who just want to do their bit to help their local community and beyond.
Service Above Self is the focus of our involvement - but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Fun and friendship are a vital part of our club and we are actually very active: the club is involved in a wide range of events with very few months going past that there is not something happening, either events in the community, fund raising, youth events, or just having a fellowship meal with club members or fundraising for International Charities such as Shelterbox or Polio eradication.
Weekly Meetings are held at the King's Manor Hotel, each Wednesday from 6.15pm for 6.30pm. We also meet for regular Saturday mornings for coffee and chat and have social events, too.
Portobello Rotary Club welcomes new members. If you are interested in finding out more about Rotary then please contact us here.and we've got active social media links: Facebook, Twitter and Wordpress
And if you're a visiting Rotarian, please come and join us - you'll always find a warm welcome at our club and we'll be pleased to suggest places of interest to visit in and around Edinburgh.
We've just completed a major project, where Daniel Barreto cycled from Land's End to John O'Groats in 12 days in early June and his project has raised Â£10,000 to go towards the End Polio Now campaign (more information here.), the main Rotary charity, which aims to eradicate the disease of polio from the whole world (just three countries to go) and then make sure that it never comes back, with universal vaccination.
In the next 30 days...
