About us

WELCOME TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF HARROGATE

 Hello, my name is Pat Doherty and I am President of the Rotary Club of Harrogate for the year 2017 / 18 and it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our website.

The Harrogate Club is one of the longest established in the United Kingdom with a record of ninety-six years continuous service to the town of Harrogate and wider community, during which it has sponsored four other Rotary Clubs. 

Essentially, we are a group of friendly individuals who meet on a weekly  basis and whose purpose is to make a difference in our community and wider afield through the various humanitarian projects we support. The Club is especially noted for its contribution to the environmental movement in Rotary International and locally with its major programmes of tree and bulb planting.

Amongst its many enterprises is the building and management of twenty-seven units of affordable accommodation provided for people of fifty-five and over (Harrogate Flower Fund Homes) and the organisation of the Nidderdale Charity Walk which raises over £60,000 annually for local charities and last year we also organised a 20 mile run over part of the Nidderdale Way.

If you are interested in joining us and have the desire and willingness to get involved, whatever your age, then we could achieve even more if you decided to join us.
