About us


UKRAINE - Your continued support is needed!

A huge thank you to all who supported Christmas tree collection this year which raised in excess of £1700 with gift aid £1000 of which has gone to Horticap without whom we could not have managed.

The Harrogate Club is one of the longest established in the United Kingdom with a record of one hundred and one years continuous service to the town of Harrogate and wider community, during which it has sponsored four other Rotary Clubs. 

Essentially, we are a group of friendly individuals who meet on a weekly  basis and whose purpose is to make a difference in our community and wider afield through the various humanitarian projects we support. The Club is especially noted for its contribution to the environmental movement within Rotary International and locally with its major programmes of tree and bulb planting.

Amongst its many enterprises over the years has been the building and management of twenty-seven units of affordable accommodation provided for people of fifty-five and over (Harrogate Flower Fund Homes) which is now managed by a local housing association with the involvement of current members. Another major initiative is the organisation of the Nidderdale Charity Walk which last year raised over £18,000 for local charities.  This has been recently extended to include a 26.2 mile marathon length run over part of the Nidderdale Way. 

If you are interested in joining us and have the desire and willingness to get involved, whatever your age, then we could achieve even more if you decided to join us.
