About us

Welcome to Skipton Rotary Club


The purpose of Rotary is to make friends, assist others in the community and promote global peace.

Some of the many things we do - Rotarians are all volunteers and each year our Club donates Locally, Nationally & Internationally to those in need.  Come along and join us - volunteering is fun.

In recognition of the organisation’s distinguished and eminent service rendered to Craven District, we are pleased to announce that Freedom of the District has been conferred on Skipton Rotary Club.

Total donations for the year to 30th June 2022 were £37,816.  

Part of the funds we raise are from the public’s use of the Skipton Building Society Head Office car park at weekends and we thank everyone for their support.
