About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Mounts Bay

Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas.

We are dedicated people, men and women from business and professions, who share a common interest in helping others.

Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun. 

Being a Rotarian is very fulfilling. You can do as much as your time allows, have fun and enjoy fellowship with others.

The club is always keen to welcome new members so please contact us if you would like to know more.

Rotary in Action



During the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Rotary Club of Mounts Bay and the Rotary Club of Penzance joined forces to help the local community in Penzance and the surrounding area.  

As soon as the first lockdown was announced in March 2020, a joint funding committee was formed in order to identify individuals and organisations which would benefit from practical or financial help. Hardship grants totalling more than £16,000 were distributed to 20 Primary Schools in Penwith in two phases, April/June and November/December, to assist in providing support for disadvantaged families. 


Similar grants totalling £6,000 were distributed to the three Secondary Schools in our area. In addition, grants of more than £10,000 were distributed to community groups such as the Fisherman’s Mission, Penlee Cluster, Bosence Farm Community and YMCA Cornwall. 


Grants totalling more than £6,600 were also made to support the Food Bank, the Street Food Project and ‘Food for Families’. 

Just before Christmas, a total of £1,480 was donated to five organisations to provide small Christmas gifts to young people and seniors living on their own, who may not otherwise have received any gifts at that time.

In total, up to the end of January 2021, the two Rotary Clubs made grants of a massive £40,807 to the local community.

All of these grants were made possible by the sale of donated goods in the Rotary Shop in Penzance – opposite the Humphry Davy statue. Last year the shop also benefited from a generous bequest. This shop, which is run by Rotarians and other volunteers, none of whom are paid, will reopen as soon as Government guidelines allow.  

Anyone interested in volunteering to help in the shop should contact Zena Muth via email at zena@cbthypnosis.co.uk or interested in learning more about Rotary or becoming a member should contact Russell Whitlock (Rotary Club of Mounts Bay by email at roseandrussell@aol.com)
