Welcome to the Rotary Club of Mounts Bay

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.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has over 55,000 members in 1,855 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation.

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!

The Rotary Club of Mounts Bay organises community events and projects each year including the St Michaels Way Walk in May, the Penwith Peninsula Cycle Ride in September and the Senior Citizens' Christmas Party in December. We run competitions and schemes for young people. We support  International aid projects, and campaign for the eradication of Polio.

Being a Rotarian is very fulfilling. You can do as much as your time allows, have fun and enjoy fellowship with others.  

The club is always keen to welcome new members. Please contact the Membership Officer Rtn. George Hawken on 01736 366187 or email membership@mountsbay.rotary1290.org

"10 a year, it's a no brainer, must be the best lottery in town!"      (quote from a joining member of the 200 Club)

The 200 club has 200 members who make a modest payment of 10 per annum. This creates a monthly 'pot' of 166 of which our 200 Club members win 100 every month! The remaining 66 goes towards MBRC supported charities. Find out more
