Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas.
We are dedicated people, men and women from business and professions, who share a common interest in helping others. Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun!

Mounts Bay Rotarian Walks 100 miles for Charity
Rotarian John James has just completed the entire Cotswold Way (104 miles) for charity. The walk lasted eight days and John carried everything he needed on his back, staying at small B&Bs every night. Fellow Rotarian Alan Wilson accompanied John for the last six days, whilst his daughter Emma walked with him for the first two days.
“I think they came with me to ensure I didn’t cheat!” John commented, “But I was glad of their company. The weather was odd: we started out from Chipping Campden in the middle of a blizzard, but most days it was warm and sunny. It was also surprising how steep many of the sections were – the walk certainly tested my fitness to the limit! I enjoyed it all, but I was really pleased when we got to the Abbey at Bath, which marks the end point of the Cotswold Way.”
John managed to raise £700 for the End Polio Now campaign, which will be boosted to £2,100 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “The money raised will help to vaccinate hundreds of children. When polio is finally eliminated, our job will be done.”
We support a wide variety of projects in the local community, through fund-raising and direct involvement.
