About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Plymouth

Welcome to the home page of the Rotary Club of Plymouth. We are a diverse club of ordinary men and women, young and old. Our club is strongly focused on networking, community service and helping to change lives in the world, with giving back to the community as our common goal. Rotary allows us to do more in partnership than we can as an individual.

We now meet at the Plymouth Cricket Club at Mount Wise.  If you intend to visit us please use the 'Contact Us' facility to advise our secretary.  

Background information about the Club

Formed in 1920, we are coming up to our Centenary year. Our Club is part of a worldwide organisation, which has over 1.2 million members. We meet weekly on a Monday lunchtime. We enjoy a great meal, great camaraderie and do have excellent guest speakers.

We have many projects to assist the local community as well as the international community. Our members truly get a satisfaction out of knowing they have helped to change lives and do good in the world.

If you are looking to give something back to the community, or helping those in need, then contact us or come to one of our meetings to find out more. We encourage you to visit our ‘future diary’ section regularly, to see the various upcoming activities that the club is taking part in and how you can help. We also encourage you to keep an eye out to the right of this page in the ‘in the next 30 days…’ section, to see what is coming up.

Support for Charities

From time to time the Rotary founded ShelterBox appeals to the public to contribute towards its work in providing relief to those struck by disaster whether man made or natural events. 

We also support events organised by other bodies. These are great fun frequently dressing the part, such as 'Pirates'. These activities have assisted others in raising substantial funds for their specific charities.

At Christmas we collect for a number of local charities with collections at superstores. We also escort santa on his sleigh around streets in various parts of the City.  Details of his routes can be found on our Facebook page at Christmas time.

Pirates Weekend

On the weekend of 10th & 11th May 2019 we took part in this annual event raising money for local charities.  We select a different charity each year.  This year it was the Plymouth Branch of the NSPCC.  As a result we have been able to donate £700 to the NSPCC.  It was hard work but enjoyed by all.  Thanks to those who visited our stall whether to take part in the mechanical mouse challange to knock over a miniture pirate figure or the tambola to win a prize.

Each year our club President selects a charity to support during their year in office.  This year President Martin has selected the Marie Currie Nurses to support.

Phil in his presidential year raised around £2,000 in aid of the Plymouth Branch of the NSPCC.
