Rotary Club of Mumbles - welcome! Please scroll/swipe down through this page to find out more about us, in addition to the pages linked in the menu, top-left.
Thank you for visiting the Mumbles Rotary Website. I hope you find the information both interesting and informative. I have been a member of Rotary for seven years and now find myself President of this friendly and sociable club for a second time. We have just celebrated our 50th Anniversary receiving a congratulatory letter from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth outlining the success of its members in fundraising and supporting local and international charities since its inauguration.
Club members come from a host of backgrounds and bring with them the many strengths, interests and expertise that we can use in order to support fundraising and provide service to the Mumbles Community.
Many people we meet are aware of Rotary but unsure of what we do. Reading the information on this website is a good start and meeting up with one of our members is an even better way of getting an insight into Rotary.
Club members would usually meet twice a month at the Norton House Hotel to plan events and projects that we hope will benefit others and Covid 19 has not curtailed our activities. We now meet weekly online using 'Zoom' where we hold business meetings, fun activities and even speaker evenings. Our online activities have resulted in the club providing funds for local foodbanks and sourcing medical grade material to make scrubs for the Swansea Bay NHS, local care homes and surgeries.
Despite our recent online successes, we do look forward to a time when we can meet up again around the table and enjoy each other's company.
If you are interested in supporting the less fortunate in the community, meeting liikeminded people and making new friends why not think of joining us - you will be made most welcome. Send us a message via our website Contact list and we will do the rest.
The Rotary Club of Mumbles, formed in 1970. During the Coronavirus Pandemic members have been holding a Zoom meeting each Monday.

END POLIO NOW
Rotary International is working in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation aiming to eradicate Polio throughout the World - something we are close to achieving. Since Rotarians started this humanitarian programme to counter polio in 1985, more than two billion children have received the oral polio vaccine and reported cases have dropped by over 99%!
