Rotary International is the world's largest service organisation.
There are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belonging to more than 32,000 clubs which are based in local areas in more than 200 countries.
Membership is open to men and women drawn from business and professional people in the community, we are non-political, and non-religious.
Rotary exists to assist the under-privileged, and provides educational and humanitarian service to the community at a local, national and international level, therefore benefiting the lives of others, in our community and also internationally.
The Rotary Club of Wednesfield was formed in 1964. There were 28 founder members and a prominent Wednesfield businessman, Norman Purshouse, was founder President. Club membership has flucuated over the years in the 20's and 30's and currently stands at 22 members.
We are now aiming to increase our membership and we invite local business and service people to come and join us so that we can expand our programme of service.
