The purpose of a local Rotary Club is to connect people who then work together to help the community and promote goodwill and peace.

 The Rotary Club of Birstall Luddites has a current membership of 24 men and women who raise money locally from Christmas Santa Sleigh and Tesco collections, social and fund raising events through the year.

Money raised allows us to make donations locally, nationally and internationally.
Joining Rotary is your opportunity to make a difference and you will have fun and make some great friends along the way!

Live around Birstall/Batley/ Heavy Woollen District ?

This is some of what we do annually in the local Community and Internationally.
