About us

For very nearly 100 years, Purley Rotary has served the local Purley community to make a real contribution to the lives of others. As People of Action, we pool our talents and resources to get things done and genuinely make a difference to local life.

Like all organisations, our activities have been badly hit by Covid-19 but nevertheless since last April we have:

* Organised a community Art Competition of people's reflections on life in lockdown and turned the 12 winning entries into a 2021 calendar. Click here to see some of the wonderful Art Competition entries.
* Litter-picked in Purley Rotary Field several times a week to keep it clean and safe.
* Supported Purley Food Hub, the local food bank.
* Donated over £2,500 to other local charities.
* Raised £3,500 COVID funds.
* Raised £8,500 for the Rotary Club in Beirut to aid victims of last August's explosion in the city.
    In addition, we have continued to meet online via Zoom on Wednesday nights, for ‘open chat’ sessions, quizzes and a range of excellent speakers. We are men and women from all walks of life and are always looking for new people to join us - to take part in an existing project or set up a new one, while also enjoying good fellowship and having FUN.  

    To find out more, take a look at our Newsletters and Diary of Events, or phone us on 020 8651 1829 or email info@purleyrotary.com and we will get back to you. We very much look forward to introducing ourselves to you.

    Our Swimathon 2021 has been cancelled but we will be back in 2022, with an even bigger splash, to raise more cash for our local & international charities!

    Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the need to follow advice from HM Government and Public Health England, all future meetings will be held via ZOOM until further notice. Should you wish to join in one of our meetings, please contact our club Secretary on 020 8651 1829. Thank you.
