Information on how you can get involved with MKGU Rotary

Tabitha Cobb, Ethel Morris and Maureen McColl were inducted as members of the club in January 2018

Becoming a Rotarian

We welcome new members at MKGU.

If you’d like to find out more about joining us, contact Preston below or just come to a Rotary breakfast, meet us and have a chat.

Every Thursday we meet in the Mulberry Suite at the Open University from 7 am onwards, sit down to breakfast at 7.30am and finish at 8.30am prompt. Even when we have a speaker, we ensure that we finish on the dot to allow everyone to get on with the rest of Thursday.

Benefits of being a Rotarian

There are many benefits of joining Rotary, including

·        The opportunity to help others in our community and also help others around the world

·        Build friendships with fellow members (and their families) at breakfast meetings, social activities and fund-raising events

·        Hear a wide range of interesting speakers at Thursday breakfast meetings

·        Join a worldwide charitable organisation (with 1.2 million members) and an open invitation to visit any other Rotary club in the world


We make a monthly charge of £11 (to cover an affiliation fee to Rotary International, a contribution to Rotary Foundation – our international charity and club running costs). On top is a charge of £8 for each breakfast meeting attended (this includes a full English breakfast). 

For administrative ease this is collected by a monthly standing order of either £37 or £19 (the amount depends on whether you think you will be able to attend most meetings or more likely once a month). Every six months we adjust your payment to reflect your actual attendance, but no one pays more than £37 per month.

On top of that we each buy a £1 raffle ticket for the weekly raffle – the prize is supplied by the individual on Welcome Duty, which we take in turn.
