About us

 

Who are we?

We are ordinary individuals with extraordinary spirits who has an infectious enthusiasm, and a duty to help those less fortunate.   We come from all walks of life, with a close association with our local community of Turton, Bolton. 

We have been an active part of this community for many years and looking forward to many more years to come.  We are part of the worldwide Rotary organisation of over 1 million members and 35,000 local clubs.

What do we do?

We raise around £20,000 of charitable funds each year and distribute them to worthy causes at both Local and International levels. Our major fundraisers are Santa's Sleigh, The Duck Race and Easter Egg Hunt

We also have a variety of smaller projects which allow us to support charities, organisations and events throughout the year.

We meet each Thursday evening for a meal at The Last Drop Village Hotel in Bolton where we have social interaction with fellow Rotarians, Guests, a Visiting Speaker, and with Friends of the Rotary like you.
