For over 30 years, Rotary and its members have been committed to fighting to eradicate polio across the world. The amount of polio-endemic countries has dropped from 125 to just two, with over 2.5 billion children receiving vaccinations thanks to the help of Rotary.
With eradication now closer than ever, Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s latest campaign, Purple4Polio, is designed to unite communities to engage in activities as part of the final push to eradicate polio for good.
Rotary has over 1.1 million members in 55 countries, and through this wide network promotes world peace and understanding by local and international service projects

Welcome to our website. The Rotary Club of Irvine Seagate is a mixed club formed in 1992. We have been twinned with the Rotary Club of Beauce Solonge in Orleans since 1993, meeting up every two years.Our motto is "Seagate Rotary makes a difference." We do this by providing service and support to international and local communities, including our local schools. This year, we will focus especially on Rotary International's campaign to End Polio Now, which is "this close" to achieving a world without polio.
We enjoy the fellowship of Rotary through our fundraising activities and social events, such as walks, our annual Safari Supper, our highly successful Sportsmen's Dinner and our Marymass Hot Dog stall in August. Each Christmas, we provide food hampers to one hundred elderly people in the locality, and we sponsor local school children in Rotary competitions such as Youth Speaks.
We ran a zip slide over the River Irvine to raise funds for boreholes in Malawi; we organised our District Conference in 2009; and we refurbished a local Memorial Garden with the Irvine Rotary Club in 2005 to commemorate the Centenary of Rotary.
We meet on a Monday night at the Hallmark Hotel in Irvine - our meetings are relaxed and congenial.
