Rotary Club of Market Harborough - welcome! One Club but with distinct traditional and modern groups, a lively Rotaract Club and a developing 'family of Rotary' presence.
Located in the picturesque market town of Market Harborough, Leicestershire, England we are a thriving and friendly Rotary Club which welcomes visitors from all over the world. We are proud of our club and the contributions Rotary makes to communities both locally and abroad by living up to its motto "Service above Self".
We are a group of local men and women who work together to make other people's lives better. We do this as one branch of the world-wide family of Rotary with over 1.2 million members. We work in an atmosphere of dedicated service, coupled with fun and fellowship to the highest ethical standards.
In 2011 we held our first SwiMarathon, a community fundraising event held at the Harborough Leisure Centre. This was a fantastic success raising enough money for us to be able to give a total of almost £70,000 to good causes between 2011 - 2019. It is not an endurance swim, rather a fun team activity, for all ages, where each team swims relay style in one lane of the pool for just one hour, getting sponsorship for doing it.
The 2020 Swimarathon was a huge success with with 42 teams comprising 186 swimmers swam 5008 lengths which is nearly 125km.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and to our business sponsors, without whom we couldn't put the event on:-
Brooke House College, Dunham's Jewellers, Dunleavy's hairdressers, ET Peirson, Everyone Active Leisure Centre, Harborough FM, Harborough Mail, Lexington's Heating Engineers, Mayday Finance, Mistry's Pharmacy, PJD design and print, Specsavers, J Stamp and sons, Stephen Sanderson Transport, Taylor Wimpey, Tim Thornton Jewellers, Wade's Glass, Walker Forestry Conservation, Wilkinson Goldsmith, Wingates Galleries.
