About us

Joining Rotary has never been easier.
Members of Rotary, known as 'Rotarians' combine socialising and networking with working together to identify ways to make small improvements to the lives of the elderly, the young and the vulnerable.
Penzance Rotary, the most westerly in mainland England & Wales, draws membership from Penzance and West Penwith. The club is always on the lookout for new members - men and women, working or retired, bringing together experience gained through their work and community lives.

Charity Commission. No. 1027839
Penzance Rotary was established in 1923 and true to it's ninety nine year history, the members continue to organise a wide range of community and fundraising activities.
Rotary organises fundraising and social activities including the town's Classic Car Rallies on Penzance Promenade, mock interviews for school leavers, vocational competitions for young people, health awareness days, concerts for youngsters, outings for the elderly, litter picking sessions and much, much more. We use money generated through the Rotary Shop of Penzance to help fund food banks, provide relief from hardship, assist local welfare organisations and to support other worthwhile causes.
We are always keen to hear about new ideas and new activities and we invite you to become part of our future.
Contact our Secretary for more information or to arrange to attend one of our Friday lunches. 
End Polio Finally - Donate now via your local Rotary.
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.
