About us

The Rotary Club of Durham is part of Rotary North East (District 1030) serving North-East England. 

Durham CathedralThe city of Durham is dominated by the Castle and Cathedral situated on the rocky peninsular (a World Heritage site) with the River Wear flowing past on three sides. To quote Sir Walter Scott:-
Grey towers of Durham
Yet well I love thy mixed and massive piles
Half church of God half castle 'gainst the Scot

Things have changed and even the Scots are now welcome! In fact, all visiting Rotarians can be sure of a very warm welcome at any of our weekly meetings.


All the money we raise for charity is processed through the
ROTARY CLUB OF DURHAM CITY TRUST FUND, a registered charity - Number 1010655.

October 2016 - together with the other two Durham Clubs, we planted a large quantity of purple crocuses on the Rotary Way roundabout as part of the Purple 4 Polio campaign. Now, March 2017, they are in full bloom:

    


Durham, Bede and Elvet Rotary clubs came together to plant 5000 crocuses on the Rotary way roundabout as part of Rotary International drive to eradicate polio across the world!

The Rotary Clubs of Bede, Elvet and Durham are working together to promote Purple4Polio and to raise funds to support outreach workers, medicines and support services for those with polio, but with the focus on prevention rather than cure.

If you would like to know more about Purple4Polio and how you could support P4P then please visit our website!

The intrepid team  are Arthur Charlton (President of Elvet), Terry Walton (Bede), David Yates, Jan Karnacz, David Jackson, (Durham) Peter Bramwell and Gwen Bramwell (Elvet).
