Rotary International, founded in 1905, is the world's largest service organisation, whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. We are 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
The Rotary Club of Princes Risborough is a friendly club with over 50 dedicated individuals who exchange ideas, build relationships and take action.
As well as raising money for many charities within the local community and abroad, we also join with other local organisations, supporting each other in many ways For a list of our Donations please click here.
Our activities are many, for example the whole club supports the Kop Hill Climb motoring event in September attracting some 15,000 people to the event. For our most recent activities see "Latest News" below.
Every year, at the end of November in Dukes Street Garden, and in conjunction with the Rennie Grove Hospice we hold a Tree of Light dedication ceremony in memory of those who have passed away.
We are also very active in supporting Bucks Young Carers by allowing them some respite from their daily tasks by taking them to social functions and giving them a Christmas Party. In the summer we take them sailing for the day (a first for many of them)
We are justly proud of the efforts we have made in supporting the Princes Centre to become an independent care facility for the less able both old and young within Risborough.
We are equally proud of our support to our Interact Clubs at the Princes Risborough Secondary School and the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe. This introduces young people who are setting out on their careers to the joys of supporting the community and raising money for worthwhile charities. Rotarians take turns in attending Interact meetings every school week.
As a club we support a number of International projects in Africa including the Ebola crisis.
As Rotarians fellowship is a key feature of our Club .We have many Social interests such as a monthly walking group, a weekly cycle group, a monthly Curry club ,Visits, Theatre trips, an annual sailing trip to Greece , Turkey or Croatia and many partner evenings enjoying a good speaker.
