Find out what it means being a Rotarian

Skipton Craven Rotary Club – open for new members.


Despite the restrictions placed upon us during recent months Rotary is determined to carry on albeit with limitations. All our meetings are currently online and any fund raising activities such as our well known Santa Fun Run  are now of the virtual kind. Any club is dependent on a steady flow of new members joining its ranks to ensure its long term future. We are no different and are keen to talk to anybody who feels that our motto “Service above Self” is something they might want to take on board.
Just ask yourself, do you want to help in doing what we do and make it even better.  There are options around membership as to how you might help, becoming a full member is only one.

What we do

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:

·       Promote peace

·       Fight disease

·       Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene

·       Support education

·       Help when disasters strike

At club level, the primary focus is on fund raising, and if you are local to the Craven area you may be familiar with;

The Santa Fun Run,

The Santa Sleigh that visit most homes in Skipton during December,

Our presence at car boot sales throughout the summer,

Our regular collections at Tesco's & Morrisons,

The work we do with local schools and young people via RYLA, OYT and others.

On an individual level, members have their own areas of focus, so within our club members make significant commitments to


Orphans in Kenya

Youth Technology Tournaments

Our twinning with  a club from Dronten, Holland.

 Oh yes, we also have fun doing all this.

So, if you are looking 'to give back' what better way to do it than as a member of the world’s oldest and most respected service organisation.  Click on the link below to view a short video.
