About the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen

A brief description of this Club's current activities - and some history

The Club logo

The Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen received its Charter on 30th June 1989. The Club currently has 34 members, of whom seven are founder members. We meet on most Monday evenings (except Bank and Public Holidays) at the Truro Cathedral Restaurant - details in the tab above.

We have recently re-organised into three operational groups:

  • the Service Projects group works with local schools to run competitions such as Youth Speaks, Young Chef, and Young Writer. It supports local charities such as the Truro Foodbank, the St Petroc's charity, and the Friends of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals. Internationally it looks to work in particular with Cornish charities operating overseas in areas of need, particularly Shelterbox. It is also concerned with the Club's fundraising work. We work closely with the Rotary Club of Truro in many of these projects

  • the Fellowship group is concerned with membership, the Club programme and social activities. .

  • The Communications group of four members deals with the Club website, social media, the press and PR, and intra-Club matters.

The Club takes its name from its association with the family name of the Lord Falmouth. The emblem is unique in that, by kind permission of the Lord Falmouth and the Hon. Evelyn Boscawen, it combines the Boscawen Rose with the RI logo.

All the funds we raise are administered through a registered charity, The Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen Trust Fund (Registered Charity Number 1043219), which supports many activities locally, nationally, and internationally.
