Isle of Thanet Sunrise Rotary CLub

Come from all walks of life, some working, some retired. We all very much enjoy a personal sense of fulfilment in being part of a vibrant club making a big difference.


Our Goals

For our members, guests and visitors to have friendship and fun with the minimum of formality.

To have a varied and inclusive social calendar.

We aim to support essential services and charities in our local community.

To give help and support in providing vital International Aid and disaster relief wherever it is needed in the world.
