Helping our community

Mount's Bay Rotary is committed to helping its local community. Whether by donations or by active service, Rotarians are ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

Gym Club

Community is at the heart of our service.

Community service projects help to improve the lives of people in our local communities, and encourages high ethical standards, honesty and integrity in everyday life.

Every Rotarian assumes a responsibility to find ways to improve the quality of life for those in their communities and to serve the public interest. Mount's Bay Rotary is involved in many community projects and initatives, often in partnership with local clubs and charities. 

Using funds raised by the Rotary Shop in Penzance, we were recently able to support yet another worthwhile and important local organisation.

The club has over 500 members and provides classes for locals of all ages, ranging from toddlers to adults – even septuagenarians I was told!

The pandemic meant that the club was forced to curb its activities for a long period of time, and lost part of its premises as a result. However, the lifting of restrictions means that the club has been able to re-start its work. With the help of a local builder, they have created a custom-made foam pit (an important and popular piece of equipment).

We were delighted to help them with a cheque to fill the pit with purpose-built gym pit foam logs, manufactured to the highest specifications!
