About us

Have you ever considered joining Rotary?  

Rotarians volunteer what time, talents and resources they can to address the needs of those less fortunate than themselves.

Joining Rotary is a great way to give something back to your community and in the process you will make lifelong friends with likeminded local people.

The Rotary Club of Penzance, the most westerly in mainland England & Wales, draws membership from Penzance and West Penwith. The club is always on the look for new members - men and women, working or retired, usually with leadership experience from previous business or community work.

End Polio Finally - Donate now via your local Rotary Club
Rotary's priority project internationally since 1985 has been the eradication of polio. It was in 1985 that Rotary launched PolioPlus, a multi-million dollar initiative to immunise all the world's children against polio. Since then more than two billion children have received the oral polio vaccine and endemic polio has almost been eliminated across the planet. Together we can finish the job.
