About us

Our club members believe that raising money to help make a difference to our local community and international projects, should be enjoyable, and we love to create events that are different, and involve the local community.

We enjoy life and like making new friends, and have links with Rotary Clubs in The Netherlands, Germany and France and also collaborate with and support the other Rotary Clubs in Brighton and Hove.  Visitors, family and friends are always warmly welcomed at our Club meetings.

Our members come from a variety of working backgrounds including advertising, marketing and PR, accountancy and the law, retail, hospitality, charity, IT, teaching and care sectors, and the private sector.

We are a robust and vibrant club, open and transparent, with a desire to grow further. We currently have 55 members, with an almost equal split between men and women, some retired and some still working, but all of whom are keen to use their skills and resources to help others.  We are always open to welcoming new members who want to make a real difference to people in our City

Soiree is a non-profit making organisation that helps charities and organisations financially and through our expertise, both locally in Brighton & Hove and in some of the world’s poorest countries.
