Rotary South East (UK) & Gibraltar

“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

79 Rotary Clubs - All Making A Difference

We have 79 great Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 1120; stretching from the South East of London, along the Kent and Sussex coasts and also including Gibraltar. We are 2,300 men and women; all having fun whilst serving our communities and making a difference worldwide.

What We Do

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 At The Heart of Your Community

"Rotarians are ordinary people who go that extra mile to help other people and in the process widen their circle of friends and enhance their social life"

Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things Together

We're Rotary

We see opportunities where others see obstacles. We're change makers and problem solvers. We continue to provide access to clean water, tackle global heath concerns, support education and build the foundations for peace across borders. We're Rotary and there's no limit to what we can do.

Polio this week (as of 10th April 2019)

The eradication of polio has been the number one project for Rotary over the past 30 years. 

Five Key Facts You Need To Know About Polio:

1. Polio mainly affects children under age 5.
2. There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.
3. Only three countries remain endemic.
4. We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.
5. Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.

Lastest from the Global Polio Eradication Initiative

Cases of wild poliovirus to date in 2019 = 9 ( Afghanistan 3 & Pakistan 6)
Cases of wild poliovirus in 2018 = 33 ( Afghanistan 21 & Pakistan 12 )
The fight continues ....
