Welcome to Rotary in Pershore
Our Rotary club is based in Pershore, in the heart of the Vale of Evesham. Pershore is famous for the ancient Norman Abbey, plum orchards and warm hospitality. We are a team of men and women from the town and surrounding villages who want to make a difference by supporting and helping those less able to help themselves.
Rotarians are a thoughtful and progressive group of people. We plan to make things happen. We have a range of development programmes for youngsters of all ages and, at Pershore High School, we have an Interact Club for 12 to 18 year olds. We have funded students taking part in our RYLA program – a personal and team leadership development course.
Rotary is a dynamic and stabilizing organisation with 1.2 million members worldwide. We have embraced many changes in recent years and never more so than now, as we adjust to life post lockdown, caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rotarians like to have fun. We're passionate about supporting our community. We like to think of ourselves as ‘People of Action’ by getting involved in projects, here and overseas. In the past two years we have raised over £45,000 for local organisations, including the Midlands Air Ambulance, St Richard’s Hospice, Acorns Children’s Hospice and have helped rebuild and support schools in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Africa.
Who are we?
Our members fall into two groups. The larger group are mainly retired and, having more time on their hands, are able to devote themselves and their skills to solving community issues and concerns. The other group, our Business Club, are younger and in business. They include an accountant, solicitor, hotel owner, Careers Development Adviser, property development consultant, Care Home owner and garden design consultant. Every one of them is enthusiastic and wants to make a difference.
Would you like to find out more about us or, better still, be part of Rotary? If so, then why not get in touch. Click on ‘Contact Us’ on the website MENU. Select one of the dropdown options and send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you and guarantee that you will receive the warmest of welcomes.
