About us

Welcome to Stokesley Rotary Club
North East England

A bit about us

The Club was founded in 1980 and comprises a group of people who volunteer their skills and expertise across a variety of areas to deliver diverse programmes to benefit local and international communities. Over the years the Club has raised and distributed tens of thousands of pounds and has instigated many local, national and international projects.
The Club meets at Stokesley Sports Club on Tuesday evenings. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. (Our website is We frequently invite internationally renowned speakers via Zoom meetings, usually related to our objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest. We also have an ongoing programme of outdoor social visits and community projects.
Please take a look at the programme options so that you can see what we’ve done in the past, and what we plan for the future – you may like to join or support us, especially if you would like to help us rebuild an aeroplane!

Where to find us

Stokesley is a small North Yorkshire market town on the banks of the River Leven, which is home to about 5000 people. The town, with a lovely Georgian market square is only around four miles from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and about 15 miles from the pretty Yorkshire coastal resort of Saltburn. 

Sushma Acquilla is this year's Club President.  In October each year Stokesley Methodist Church is lit up in purple for World Polio Day.  Rotary's focus is on Purple4Polio, as we continue the challenge of eradicating Polio from the world. There are now just a handful of polio cases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and we are so close to finally eliminating this dreadful disease. 

If you would like to know more about Stokesley Rotary Club, or what Rotary is, then please contact our Membership Chair, David Hill or our Club Secretary, Les Wood, either of whom will be happy to help.
