The application should be made in writing, by letter or email, and addressed to the Rotary 1070 District Secretary, contact details shown below, enclosing two proofs of identification.

    Applicants should be aware that where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because they are repetitive, Rotary District 1070 can:
