About us


Welcome to the Home page of the Rotary Club of Truro Web Site. I hope your visit will give you a glimpse into the world of Rotary International and an insight into the fun and fellowship that is part of this amazing worldwide organisation which has more than 1.3 million members.

Our club was formed in 1922 and, from its foundation right through to the present day, our focus has been about helping our local community. Today we give a little of our time each month to support projects like the Truro Memory Cafe, the Food Bank, the Truro Disabled Club and the Parkinson's hub, all of which are incredible projects helping local residents deal with their daily challenges. We also help organisations including the Royal British Legion with their annual "Poppy appeal", and provide local young people with innovative programmes and support designed to help in their personal development.

Our Club consists of 20 members, both men and women, who come from a wide range of backgrounds and walks of life. We also have an Evolution Club, run at a separate location where  new members are also welcome . Please see the Rotary Evolution Club of Truro website for details

We find that those approaching retirement,or those newly retired, are often attracted to the idea of helping their local community after a busy working life whilst at the same time,enjoying the friendship that Rotary offers.

If you would like to find out more about our club, please contact us .You can email us at rotarytruro@gmail.com  or click the contact link at the bottom of this page. Please ensure that you include your contact details in any message you send.

Cycle Ride in Support of Help for Heroes -2014

Our Satellite Club Rotary team  completed their marathon trip to London and arrived safely at Horseguards Parade to a rapturous welcome and President Cathie reports that 

 "The Team made it to London, all 320 mies, in great spirits and they did so well. The final day in London was so moving.

We coud not have done it without the support of family and friends along the way, especially Rotarians in Plymouth, Yeovil and in particular, Peter and Diana Allin in Camberly, who looked after us in their home for the last two nights

We also had great support from the team from the Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth and the Service personnel in Exeter,Yeovilton and Tidworth

Fantastic weather scenery and team spirit - we all had the time of our lives "

Well done Anna and Racheal but congratualtions to them all, and to the money thay have raised for Help the Heroes - and the donation box is still open to those of you who would like to show their appreciation of such a great feat carried out by our new Satellite Rotary Club of Truro   ...........Well done!!


Golden Anniversary Charity Concert 2013 raised over £2000

On Friday 23rd August Truro Rotary Club hosted a charity concert at Truro Methodist Church featuring the Caldicot Male Voice Choir from South Wales as part of their golden anniversary celebrations. It was fifty years ago that the men from the Llanwern steelworks near Newport got together to form a male voice choir which has grown from strength to strength winning awards and eisteddfods, touring North America and Europe, performing on cruise ships and it was fitting that they were chosen to sing for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The concert was organised to raise money for a number of local Rotary charities principally Truro Memory Cafe and for the James Parkinson Centre for people with Parkinson�s disease. Well over £2000 was raised on the night.
