What is Rotary?

Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas. These are dedicated people, men and women  who share a common interest in helping others.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (Rotary GB&I) has over 55,000 members in 1,855 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation.

Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun!

Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects both locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners with many charities worldwide. Read more about What We Do .

Members organise many community projects locally. View some of Penrith Rotary's Community projects here.

They work for and with young people to address challenges facing the youth of today. View some of Penrith Rotary's Youth projects here.

Members are enthusiastically committed to the drive to wipe out polio from the world. Since Rotary became involved in polio eradication in 1985, the number of reported polio cases has fallen from 100's of thousands in many countries to single figures in just a few. Current details on this ongoing Rotary project are here.
