Want to make a difference in your community? Want to meet new people and develop your skills?details
Burgess Hill and District Rotary have been serving the community, both locally and internationally, since 1948.
Many people have heard of Rotary but don’t really understand who we are or what we do. Rotary is a service organisation that brings together people who want to put something back into their community and to improve the lives of others.
Rotary is a great place to network, make new friends and to use your existing skills and gain new ones. With over 1.2 million members worldwide (50,000 in the UK and 182 in Mid Sussex) and 35,000 clubs (1,800 in the UK and 6 in Mid Sussex), you are never far from a fellow member.
Traditionally Rotary was a male only organisation until 1987 when women were accepted to become members. Burgess Hill have several lady members, many of whom have either served or are serving as President.
All the money we raise goes to good causes. Nothing is taken out for the running of the club or our weekly meetings, these costs are covered by the members. So when you see us collecting for a particular disaster, running a car boot sale, collecting with Santa or putting on a concert/quiz, every penny you give will go to help someone else.
Some of this money is given in donations to organisations or individuals for a specific purpose. Some is used to fund service activities and a list can be found under our Programme for the Year.
We review our programmes every year and members are able to propose new projects to support and the club then approves a programme.
If you would like to join in there are many opportunities for you to do so. You could become a volunteer, talk to us about a charity/organisation you are involved in, join as a member or support any of our events/projects. Please use the Contact Us link on this page to get in touch.
