About us

WELCOME TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF HARROGATE

The Harrogate Club boasts a rich history, standing as one of the United Kingdom's longest-standing Rotary Clubs, with an impressive track record of 103 years of unwavering service to the town of Harrogate and its broader community. During this extensive journey, we've proudly sponsored the establishment of four additional Rotary Clubs.

Our club is comprised of a welcoming group of individuals who convene on a weekly basis, driven by a shared mission to effect positive change within our community and beyond. Through our active involvement in various humanitarian projects, we strive to make a meaningful impact. Notably, our club has garnered recognition for its significant contributions to the environmental initiatives of both Rotary International and the local community. We've undertaken substantial programs focused on tree planting and bulb planting, underlining our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Throughout our history, we've embarked on numerous noteworthy endeavors, including the construction and management of 27 units of affordable housing tailored for individuals aged fifty-five and above, known as the "Harrogate Flower Fund Homes." Today, these homes are overseen by a local housing association with the continued involvement of our current members. Another remarkable initiative we spearhead is the Nidderdale Charity Walk, an annual event that raised over £18,000 for local charities last year. This initiative has recently expanded to include a marathon-length run spanning 26.2 miles along a section of the Nidderdale Way.

If you share our passion and commitment and are interested in becoming a part of our Rotary family, regardless of your age, your involvement could enable us to achieve even greater impact together.
