What do we do locally?
Glossop Rotary Club is part of the worldwide service organisation with over 1 million professional and business people. The movement's motto is SERVICE ABOVE SELF, which simply put, means helping those in need and offering help to young people in developing their talents and interests.
Fund raising is very important and the Glossop Jog is our main event. See the Jog page for full details.
