Welcome to Felixstowe Rotary Club and our new website. Here you will find the latest news about our club and its work within the community and the wider world.

Youth Development

Looking to the future in these difficult times, this has been a highly successful year for our Youth Development project. Most recently, just in time on 4 March, we were able to run another tournament in conjunction with Ipswich Town Academy.


Community Fund

Our focus is now to support those in our community who find themselves in particular need in these exceptional times. If you can, please donate to our Community Fund.


Life in Lockdown

Although our activities are severely curtailed and we are longing for the day we can get back to some sort of normal, the life of the club continues online. Here we see the induction of our new member Jed Payce.


About us

Felixstowe Rotary  Club - Who we are and what we do 

Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Felixstowe.

The Club was formed in 1926, we are very proud of our long history of fellowship and service to the Felixstowe area and worldwide community.

We are a lively, active lunchtime Club, known for our hospitality, humour and fun. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” and we need to raise funds to support our local, national and International projects. We do this through several events each year and have great fun along the way. We organise an annual Fun Run, Rudolf and Santa campaign, Boxing Dinner and Music concerts. Over the past twelve months alone we have donated over £35,000 to local and International causes from our events. Thanks to all who support these events and particularly to our sponsors.

But it’s not just about donations, we also see ourselves as initiators and facilitators of initiatives within our community.  Our Youth Development project, focussing on giving our young people the confidence to succeed, runs a football tournament hosted by ITFC and a “Kids Kitchen” in association with Felixstowe Academy and the Yeo Group. And, amongst the initiatives in the planning stage, we are looking to play a part in tackling the loneliness felt by many in our community.

Thank you for visiting our website, please read about our fundraising events, find out what we do and how you might be able to get involved or help us.
