News & Activities
Rotary members are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who give their time and talents to serve communities both at home and overseas.
Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects both locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners with many charities worldwide.
Members organise community projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as violence, drug abuse, health, hunger, the environment, and illiteracy.
Rotary clubs determine service projects based on local needs.
They work for and with young people to address challenges facing the youth of today.
By combining their skills and resources, members of Rotary are able to make a real contribution to the lives of others.
In local communities alone, each club raises tens of thousands of pounds for community projects and local charities, often more.
Members also volunteer their time - supervising community events, running a host of projects aimed at promoting the achievements of young people, coordinating educational programmes, and supporting local businesses.
