About us

THE ROTARY CLUB OF KING'S LYNN    

The Rotary motto is Service above Self

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

The Club is proud if its support for local, national and international charities.  In the Rotary year 2021-2022 some £12000 was donated to good causes.  The Club held its annual Christmas Party for Young Carers and later in the year provided some 50 Easter Eggs for the children.  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.  The Club also organised a public-speaking competition for secondary-school pupils.

The following charities benefited from our donations in 2021-22: Guide Dogs for the Blind, Walking 4 Norfolk, 3 Dad’s Walking, Shelterbox, Papyrus, Royal British Legion, Kids out, Baby Basics, Little Discovers, King’s Lynn Night Shelter, East Anglia Children’s Hospice, East Anglian Air Ambulance, King’s Lynn Samaritans, RNLI, Bridge for Heroes, dementia patients at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the Grace Orphanage in Nepal, Companion Paws, The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House and Festival Too.  In addition some £2500 was donated to provide help to the people of the Ukraine.

Some of our chosen charities for this coming year are: Riding for the Disabled, the King's Lynn Night Shelter, the Purfleet Trust and West Norfolk Young Carers.

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 6.15 pm or contact us for further information.  Visiting Rotarians and prospective new members will be made very welcome.
