'What We Do' Main Pages:

Vocational service is the essence of Rotary and serves as the foundation from which we serve our communities around the world.


The Rotary Foundation is Rotary's own charity. It raises money for End Polio Now, the Rotary Peace Fellowships and innumerable district and global grants worldwide. It supports Rotarians' efforts to change lives and serve communities.


Rotary Clubs support young people in many ways, which can be by providing funding but also through involvement in various school activities.

Nailsworth Rotary Club arranges many fundraising events each year and the funds raised in recent years have helped a wide range of organisations.

Fundraising for charities and helping members of our local community are just two of the reasons why people join Rotary. Friendship, fellowship and having fun are almost as important.
