Welcome to the Website of Rotary District 1240

Rotary District 1240 covers most of Essex, parts of East London and East Hertfordshire and comprises almost 1600 Rotarians in 63 Rotary Clubs and Satellite Clubs, the latter of which offer much greater flexibility to their members.

Rotary unites more than 1.2 million members in over 200 countries of the world.  Through Rotary clubs, Rotarians from all continents and cultures come together to exchange ideas, and form friendships and professional connections while making a difference in their backyards and around the world.

Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.

This website and those to be found on the Club List tab above, are open for the public to browse. If you are interested to learn more about Rotary and in the work it does, you will find opportunities to view more of what Rotarians throughout Great Britain and Ireland get up to here.

The Rotary Foundation of the United Kingdom (RFUK) is an Associate Foundation of The Rotary Foundation. RFUK supports the aims of The Rotary Foundation by providing funding for its programmes and offering a direct service for giving in Great Britain and Ireland. RFUK has recovered over £1 million in Gift Aid since 2001, allowing even more communities to benefit from The Rotary Foundation. 

Rotary on the Brink of Polio History

Since 1985, Rotary’s key humanitarian priority has been to rid the world of polio. For more than 30 years Rotary has led the campaign to rid the world of polio, protecting 2.5 billion children from paralysis and death.

With Rotary advocacy and fundraising, we are on the brink of one of the greatest global health achievements ever. Rotary spearheaded the campaign at a time when there were over 1,000 polio cases a day in 125 countries, paralysing and even killing children. Today, the number of cases is down by 99.9%.

Over the last 30 years, Rotary has donated $1.6 billion to the eradication effort and has protected over 2.5 billion children from the disease through vaccination programmes. Rotary members continue to be key players in many aspects of the polio programme including on the ground in a number of countries as well as fundraising and advocacy. More information is here
