About us

We look forward to re-starting face-to-face meetings in July 2021.

We run a programme of  physical meetings, online meetings and project and social activities.

While our notional 'home' is beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake in the northern part of the Lake District, our members are from a wide area around the nearby Cumbrian towns of Keswick and Cockermouth. We have a track record in local and international projects. Locally we work with schools, youth groups, Calvert Trust, hospices and other organsations in our community and we are known for our pop-up Felltop Café on the summit of Latrigg.

Internationally, for many years we provided assistance to hospitals and a children’s home in Ukraine and maintain this link. With the support of other Rotary clubs and sponsors we ran a project to provide a clean water supply to a small community and school in Nepal, and followed up by funding IT equipment for the school.

In partnership with Workington Derwent Rotary, we run the annual Tiger Boat charity event on Derwent Water.
