Rossendale Rotary comprises men and women who are committed to helping those in need both locally and internationally. We also have a lot of fun whether we are socialising or working together on projects.

Members meet once a week for a meal at the Sykeside Hotel, Haslingden, followed by either a business meeting or to listen to speakers on a variety of topics.

Together with the local community we make things happen. We are all about action and positive results.


For 90 years the Rotary Club of Rossendale has found the members, the dedication, the time and the funding to enable us to make a positive contribution to the local community and to the wider world. We make donations to organisations such as Rossendale Hospice, the Memory Choir, and local food banks.

We support the White Horse Youth Project in Waterfoot, Primary School projects, and individual youngsters on courses to develop their leadership skills.

On the international front we provide money for polio vaccinations to rid the world of this crippling disease, and whenever there is a disaster overseas we help finance the provision of tents and equipment to improve water supplies and sustain life.

Where does the money come from for supporting these schemes? We raise funds with the assistance of the local Rossendale Community from special events (see below), various local fairs, and a calendar depicting local scenes and activities.


We are working with the community in Lumb to renovate their Millennium Green.  Every year we organise a very popular Round the Hills Walk, a Christmas Carol Concert, and Santa's Sleigh outings.


We would welcome your involvement in our activities. There are several ways in which you can help before deciding on whether to become a member.
