If you want to find out more about Rotary, you've come to the right place. People sometimes think Rotary is just for older men. Wrong! We're a club of diverse, active and friendly men and women, of a variety of ages, who normally get together in the heart of Chichester. However in the current Covid 19 pandemic we're meeting via Zoom.
If you're interested in volunteering to work with us, or would like to ask for our support, use the "contact us" link at the top, and we'll get in touch!
Please look around the site to find out more about what we do. We are a part of Rotary International, which is the world's largest service organisation for business and professional people.
Our help in the local community continues . . .
Rotary Priory in February 2021 has made additional charitable donations, totalling
£3,000 to :-
Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice
The Dementia Hub, Tangmere
Rotary Foundation/Polio Eradication
Good that a request for help in obtaining a laptop for child in need was fulfilled by a club member with a spare. Other members also offered help with this need. For the future we are aiming to work with schools to assist further in this regard.
OTHER RECENT DONATIONS - TO FOOD BANK
Although our Rotary activities are being extremely curtailed by the pandemic and the resultant lockdown, we have continued in our efforts to help people less advantaged than ourselves.
Through these difficult times, Rotarians have made regular donations to our Charity funds, including amounts that we otherwise might have spent dining together.
This has already enabled £5,000 to be donated to Chichester’s Food Bank with another £1,500 being donated to help local needy people.
And further donations are already underway. Well done All!
Forthcoming Rotary Happenings!

Every year Priory club organises the Chichester Priory 10K Road Race at Goodwood. This takes place over a course starting and finishing at Goodwood Motor Circuit. It's a hugely popular event.
Most unfortunately, during the current pandemic, it simply isn't possible for the race to be held without breaching distancing requirements. With great regret, the event for 2021 has had to be cancelled. Please see our 10K website or Facebook page for much more information - link below.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
