About us

Welcome from the President

Parkstone Rotary President, Andy Smith

A warm welcome to our website. We are Parkstone Rotary Club and as we approach our 50th Anniversary at the end of 2020, we continue to support our community through volunteering our time to local causes and fundraising for both UK and international charities. This year, within our local community we are pleased to be helping out the wonderful Meridian Corps of Youth Drummers, the Friends of Dolphin cruises for the disabled (a charity which was started by our club almost 40 years ago!), the Victoria Education Centre for disabled children and this year’s chosen charity, the Community First Responders whose voluntary support of the SW Ambulance Trust is a vital source of first aid. Overseas we continue to raise funds for Rotary International’s hugely successful End Polio Now campaign as well as our own Jaipur Limb project which is coming to a conclusion and which has enabled the equipping and staff training at a purpose built clinic in Uganda to provide fitted prosthetics for those who have lost limbs.

Also our involvement in supporting local youth through the organisation of careers fairs, an annual technology tournament and mock interviews at local schools is a continuing and evolving initiative of which we are justly proud.

So why not join us! Come to one of our twice monthly meetings at the Royal Motor Yacht Club in Sandbanks – held at 7pm on Thursday evenings (see below for detail)

I look forward to meeting you or contact me on 07804 819143
