About us

THE ROTARY CLUB OF KING'S LYNN



The Rotary theme for 2021-22 is Serve to Change Lives.

In our Club we have a very enthusiastic and dedicated team of members who enjoy helping others and having fun along the way.

Despite the problems posed by the pandemic the Club has continued to its support for local, national and international charities.  In the Rotary year 2020-2021 over £35000 has been donated to good causes.  The largest amount – over £25000 – was spent on the purchase of 121 laptop computers which were given to 20 local primary schools to support home learning.  Although the Club was not able to hold its annual Christmas Party for Young Carers, it did provide the children with Christmas presents and later in the year with Easter Eggs.  In addition some 300 Illustrated Dictionaries were provided for Year 5 children in local primary schools, part of an annual programme supported by the three Rotary Clubs in King’s Lynn.  Some of the charities which have benefited from our donations include West Norfolk Young Carers, the King’s Lynn Night Shelter, the Purfleet Trust, the RNLI, the Royal British Legion, Shelter Box, Guide dogs for the Blind, Kids Out, Norfolk Hospice - Tapping House, Macmillan Cancer Care, and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Some of our chosen charities for this year are:   Riding for the Disabled, the King's Lynn Night Shelter, the Purfleet Trust, West Norfolk Carers and Young Carers, the Hope Charity in Kolkata and an orphanage in Kathmandu.

If you would like to become involved within your local Community please feel free to join us at one of our meetings, which are held at the Stuart House Hotel, King's Lynn, every Monday (except Bank Holidays) at 5.45 pm or e-mail us for further information.

Further contact details can be found below

We look forward to hearing from you.
