About us

ROTARY in Great Harwood and Rishton was founded in 1946. 

We are part of an  International organisation of around 1.2 million members in 200 countries worldwide.

England is divided into districts and in the Lancashire and Cumbria district there are 78 clubs.

Here in Hyndburn there are 3 Rotary clubs and we all share the same values:

  • FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service. 

We have FUN working on local and international projects that improve the lives of people, create access to education and promote peace.

            Rotary Clubs are at our heart

they bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.

            Rotary International

supports Rotary clubs worldwide, coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.

  The Rotary Foundation

uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. 

As a nonprofit fund, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.
