Helping In The Community

East Kilbride Rotary Club are involved in many local initiatives

  • Collections for Poppy Scotland each year in the two week period leading up to Rembrance Sunday;  
  • Our Wishing Well in the James Hamilton Heritage Park, where the coins collected are used to assist local charities and initiatives;
  • Our Toys for Kids Christmas initiative
  • Reading for the East Kilbride Talking Newspaper

We bring about positive change in our neighbourhood by fostering and building strong communities. Every event, initiative or project that we run - whether it is local, national or international - is rooted in the notion of community.

Because we believe that society works better when we work together.
East Kilbride Rotary is at the heart of the community. Its members are passionate about the communities in which they live and work.
