A Brief History of Rotary in Keighley

Rotary International was set up in a small office in downtown Chicago by a group of 4  men - a coal dealer, a lawyer, a tailor and a mining engineer in1905. Their first community project was to lead a campaign to install a ‘comfort station’.

It was in 1934 that Rotary came to Keighley, and among its’ first club members were a local GP, a solicitor, the manager of the Keighley News, a representative of the textile industry, a builder, a laundry engineered a banker. Today we represent a diverse range of backgrounds and businesses and continue to offer friendship to our members and service to our local community and offer support and assistance to life-changing projects across the world.

Recent and current projects we are involved in and support are The Talking Newspaper (supporting Sight Airedale), The Women’s Refuge, Rotary Young Musician Competition, End Polio Now, Mercy Ships and so  much more.

We meet weekly for a meal to hear interesting speakers, grow in fellowship, determine our future projects, manage current projects and raise our knowledge.

If you are interested in joining us and making a contribution to society besides finding rewarding friendship then please contact our secretary at:  secretary@keighleyrotary.org
