Welcome to Seaburn Rotary website. We regret that we are not able to meet during the present corona virus epidemic, but will resume meetings and events as soon as possible.

Christmas Message from Canon Stuart Bain Host Keith Higgin

We were very pleased to welcome Stuart, Provost at Sunderland Minster, who told us about the history of the building, his work there especially with the Christian refugees, mostly from Syria, and delivered an appropriate Christmas Message.



A speaker was arranged, but was unable to attend, so we had a fellowship meeting. We discussed the situation with Covid 19 and decided that, in view of the age range of members of the club, we would, reluctantly, have to cancel future meetings and events


Rotary Young Writer Competition

We had received 14 entries from Cleadon Church of England Academy, which had been judged by council members. Three members attended the whole school assembly to present the certificates and prizes for the first three winners.


Club Dinner

Another enjoyable night was had at the Sea Hotel, South Shields. There was a three course meal with choices on the night. The speaker was Fred Raffle, who has accompanied BBC commentators on Test match tours for many years.


About us

Please have a look at What We Do to see details of what is happening 

During the Rotary Year 2018/2019 we have raised over £10,500 and after expenditure on printing Christmas cards, we have distributed nearly £9,500 to local and national charities, Rotary Foundation and End Polio Now.

The Rotary Club of Seaburn was formed in 1951 and continues to deliver a range of fundraising, volunteering, support and social events to the local and international community.  In our 68 years, we estimate that we have raised well over £600,000 and that figure continues to grow.

What Is Rotary?

We are a club that is open to people from all walks of life who share our values.  We have members from a variety of professions.  Our club serves the area north of the River Wear, from the coast inland to the A19 trunk road.  One campus of the University of Sunderland is within our boundary, as well as the National Glass Centre and the Stadium of Light, home to Sunderland AFC.  The club has strong links with retail and commercial businesses within the area and we appreciate their continued support.

Seaburn Rotary is a small part of a worldwide organisation of business and professional people that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.  Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 31,000 Rotary clubs located in 200 countries.  The world's Rotary clubs meet regularly and are non-political, non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds.

We are always looking for new members to join our club.  As well as giving service and fundraising, Rotary is also about fun and fellowship.  So, if you would like to find out more about who we are and what we do, please do get in touch via the website.  You are very welcome to come to a meeting to talk to members.
