About us


In my year as President I want our club to increase connections locally whilst continuing to connect to the world with our International projects.

During the last Rotary year St Helens Rotary Club members recorded

over 2500 hours of Service to the Community.

This year we hope to significantly increase that number and for

Rotarians to promote their Rotary membership whilst carrying out

their service hours, with the intention to encourage others to join

Rotary and help Rotary to Grow.

With the help and Support of the Manager and staff of ASDA Supermarket St Helens members of St Helens Rotary Club purchased food to be donated to St Helens Foodbank.
Since opening its doors in November 2012 the Foodbank c/o The Hope Centre has distributed emergency food parcels to over 3000 people in short term crisis in the town.  
Another example of our commitment to 'Engage Rotary and Change Lives' in our community.


The Club has supported the Friends of St Helens Cemetery with the provision of snowdrops to enhance the area behind the memorial to the many children in unmarked graves and helped plant some of the 3000 bulbs on Saturday, 12th October.  A full report and photos can be seen by clicking on this photo
