Satellite Club of Abingdon Riverside

An offshoot of the Rotary Club of Abingdon, we do lots of local projects as #peopleofaction, part of #rotarymakingadifference, and we meet once every fortnight on a Wednesday evening in a local hostelry.


The Rotary Foundation - funding our biggest projects

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary International's own charity. It does an enormous amount of good in the world. Watch the video The Heart of Rotary for a flavour!


Helping Young People

Two splendid cups commissioned for our Club's annual Youth Speaks competition. Often won by our talented young people from Abingdon's six secondary schools, our winning teams often go on to the next levels of this national Rotary Competition!


Helping people abroad

The Club's foreign conscience - here immunising under-fives in India against Polio. There is no cure for Polio but it is preventable with a vaccine. Only three countries remain endemic. We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988


Public Relations

Our team addresses publicity for what we do.

Foreign language skills are useful when Rotarians shake buckets at Terminal 4 Heathrow                               to raise money for BBC Children in Need:

We have been in existence for sixty years, meeting every Friday lunchtime in the heart of historic Abingdon, seeking through our friendly fellowship to put our resources of time and money towards helping others locally, nationally and internationally.

Man or woman, if you'd like to give something back to society and have a good time in the process,
