We have 72 great Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 1120; stretching from South East London, along the Kent and Sussex coasts and also including Gibraltar. We are 1,900 men and women; all having fun whilst serving our communities and making a difference worldwide.
We like to meet people, socialise and have fun together whilst doing good in the world.
We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues. We raise funds and manage projects both locally in our own communities and also overseas to promote peace, alleviate poverty, support education, fight disease, provide clean water and address poor sanitation.
Since the mid eighties Rotary, together with the World Health Organisation and other partners, has also been at the forefront of the battle to eradicate polio from the world.
Rotary is not just a club that you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. Rotary opens opportunities for you to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now or in a small community project where you plant a tree to help the environment. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
If you think Rotary could be for you we would love to hear from you soon. Just email email@example.com.
Supporting the Environment has become Rotary's 7th Area of Focus.
More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.
