About us

Rotary Club of Reading Abbey Privacy Notice

Reading Abbey Rotary Club is one of six Rotary Clubs in and around Reading. You probably already realise that Rotary exists to:

  • Help others through volunteering, fund raising and community service
  • Facilitate the making of new friends and business contacts

What you may not have realised is how much fun this can be!  What sets Reading Abbey apart from other clubs is the people, men and women from all walks of life, bringing a variety of knowledge and experience to everything we do. We are an irreverant bunch!  The conversation is lively and the social calendar busy. We like to pitch in and contribute to our big events but we accept that family and work come first.

If you fancy the idea of putting something back and having fun at the same time then you will find a welcome with us, regardless of how much time you can afford. Come and get stuck in and see for yourself.

We meet weekly,  on Thursday evenings, in the superb Caversham Business suite of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, starting with networking, followed by dinner and then listening to an interesting speaker on a topic of general interest.

On these pages you will find something for everyone but the events we are most proud of are our big fundraisers. These provide the best opportunities for us all to work together. There are always tasks to suite any ability and we love putting a smile on the faces of the people involved.

The main events are:

    • AM-AM Golf competition
    • Englefleld 10k Run
    • Sue Ryder Fireworks
    • Summer Garden Party
