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.
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.

  


Helping Overseas

     
     
     
You don't always see what Rotarians are involved in. Delivery of three fire engines and an ambulance full of equipment to Kosovo. 
School building project in Nepal. All materials were purchased locally and the villagers shared the workload free of charge during the construction.

Project ACE   

"Aid Conservation through Education" (ACE) is a small charity based in Newmill, Cornwall, UK. They believe that education is the key to conservation and poverty eradication. They are committed to supporting rural primary education in developing countries and are currently assisting nine primary schools in rural Uganda.

                                                                 

Polio Eradication

Since making the pledge in 1985 to eradicate polio - its most ambitious programme to date - Rotary International in partnership with health agencies has brought the number of cases of polio down by 99 percent.

  



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.     

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.
