About us

Purley Rotary is a community led organisation with a long history of serving the local Purley community since 1923. 
By combining their skills and resources, members of  the Purley Rotary work to make a real contribution to the lives of others.

Should you wish to become a community organiser, then Rotary can provide the skills and support for those individuals wanting to experience leading an existing project or to maybe start a new project. 
You may enjoy taking part in helping towards good causes and want to contribute to the well being of others through collaboration with fellow Club members.
You may wish to join in the social life of the Club and meet other like minded individuals in the regular cultural activities or perhaps enjoying varyious competitions organised between Clubs throughout the UK.

The SWIMATHON is a fun event and helps local organisations raise the cash they need. On Saturday, 25th February and Thursday, 2nd March 2017 over 350 swimmer from 44 teams took to the water and raised over £23,000 towards local charities. In doing so over £500,000 has now been raised via the Swimathon. Purley Rotary takes complete responsibility for staging and running the event. Teams can be made up of friends, colleagues or family members. Click the Logo below to take you to a visual summary so far ..Purley Swimathon 2017

The SWIMATHON is not a marathon, but a FUN event. No team or individual is being asked to swim an unduly long distance. The event involves a team swimming continuously for 55 minutes with one member of the team being in the water at a time (relay style). Swimmers aged 5 to 83 and of differing abilities have taken part since the first Swimathon was organised in 1988. Since then over £500,000 has been raised for charities and organisations. You can be part of this history making by helping this very popular charity continue to the next target 0f £600,000. 

The dates for 2018 are;

Saturday, 24th February and Thursday, 1st March 2018.
