WHO ARE WE ?
We are part of the worldwide Rotary organisation which has over 32,000 clubs in 200 countries with an overall membership of over 1.2 million members. Although each club is autonomous we all share the same values and ideals of service. We are therefore a major force for good, not only in the UK but throughout the world. The Club was formed in 1921 and over the years has grown and flourished. Its members have been a catalyst for a number of initiatives in the Southend area and raised considerable funds to support local, as well as international,good causes.
Today we have a membership of around 30 men and women from all walks of life who use their skill and expertise to help those less fortunate than themselves. If the idea of building lasting friendships and doing worthwhile charitable work appeals to you, find out more here or why not contact our secretary or our membership chair by clicking here - a warm welcome awaits you.
We have been twinned with Deventer Rotary Club in the Netherlands for over 60 years and with whom we make regular exchange visits.
