The Rotary Club of Cheltenham was established in 1921, one of the first Rotary Clubs in this part of the country.
Rotary is a service organisation. The traditional motto is 'Service above Self' and enables members to contribute to very worthwhile causes by giving their own time, ideas and efforts and by raising money in a rewarding team-working environment.
We have two distinct areas of operation, locally and internationally.
Our ongoing community programme supports local schools and youth centres, public stroke awareness, and includes activities such as distributing Christmas parcels for needy people around the town. We also help a number of local charities according to need.
Our international activities include polio eradication, rapid response to natural disasters worldwide, often using Shelterbox, and support for educational and health needs.
