'What We Do' Main Pages:

End Polio Now

​I’m thrilled to share that, once again, Rotary will be a part of the Global Citizen Festival 2022 on 24 September in Central Park, NYC, USA.

Showcase of all the youth competitions run by clubs throughout the year

Local Rotary clubs comprise local people who give their time and skills to help and support their local communities. Rotary volunteering, with like minded people, is not only rewarding, but creates lasting change.


The Rotary International Network enables us to work with volunteers throughout the world.

Rotary 2 volunteers set off to pain a community hall in Frome

When a group of people who share common ideals get together something magical happens. Whether it is running a charity event, painting a local community centre, or running a social enterprise, working with others makes it happen.
