At Meridian Rotary we always put the FUN into Fundraising!
Every year we raise £000’s for our local community and international causes and also for other Rotary Charities.

Community Services

Whilst Rotary is a world-wide service organisation and a Charity, it is community-based with local club membership.
Meridian Rotary Club has therefore enjoyed a long history of service to the local community.

Monday 6th February was the day of the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria. Since then, each day brings more shocking and distressing accounts of the suffering of survivors, many without shelter or aid.

About us


Rotary Response to the War in Ukraine

Since the war began, Rotary clubs in Great Britain and Ireland have donated over £6m and given more than 100,000 volunteer hours to support Ukraine and its people. 

Rotary’s impact includes supplying life-saving medical equipment, generators and constructing temporary homes in bombed villages.  

Meridian Rotary has supported these initiatives with a donation.  We are also collecting and refurbishing mobile phones, and bicycles, for Ukrainian refugees in our community. 

To donate a phone or bicycle please e-mail us at info@meridianrotary.co.uk

Rotary Youth Speaks Competition 

Meridian Rotary Teams Reach the District Final


The Semi-Final of the District Rotary Youth Debate Competition took place on 9th February at the Duke of Kent School in Ewhurst.  
The competition has two age categories – Intermediate (11 – 13) and Senior (14 – 17) and the two winning teams from Meridian’s local heat in November took part.  
Our Intermediate team was Lingfield college with the motion: - ‘Is planetary defence worth the money?’
 Our Senior team was from Sackville college with the motion: - ‘It is impossible for a robot to think like a human.’
It was a very interesting and exciting evening, with an excellent result!   Both our brilliant teams gave first class, well formulated presentations and qualified to go forward to the District Final on March 5th in St Teresa School, Dorking. 
Congratulations to them all.
