RC North Wirral This popular event returns in a new venue, as always hosted by the Castle Singers.

Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1180, a District that covers the whole of North Wales & Mid wales, Merseyside, The Wirral and parts of Cheshire, Shropshire and Lancashire and embraces a variety of communities ranging from the pastoral peacefulness and tranquillity of rural areas to the hustle and bustle and vibrancy of the City of Liverpool. Indeed there are a total of four cities within the District, the others being Chester, Bangor, and St Asaph - each of which has at least one Rotary club presence. In addition there is also The Royal Town of Caernarfon.

Liverpool was one of the first clubs outside USA to be chartered, on 1st August 1913. From there Rotary clubs spread throughout the UK and Ireland to where we are now. Rotary International welcomes as members of its various clubs any person of good standing regardless of gender, ethnicity, beliefs or politics.

“The question is no longer, “How many children are there and where might we go to find the mall?” It is now, “How do we most efficiently vaccinate every child on this map?”

Innovations like this are a key reason for my optimism. But innovation has no moral valence by itself. It is not inherently good or bad, just irresistibly transformative. To make sure innovation transforms our world in positive ways, human beings need to point it in the right direction. That takes “public will.”

Many organizations helped push the eradication resolution through the World Health Assembly, but the one you wouldn’t expect is Rotary International. Rotary is a service organization with 1.2 million members in almost every country in the world, including more than 50,000 in Great Britain and Ireland.

Rotarians pledge to put service above self, their motto, but they have no specific global health mandate. They are not polio experts. They are regular people who go to work and spend time with their families. For three decades, they have also spent time advocating for polio eradication, raising money to support vaccination, and giving kids polio drops all over the world.

Other partners include the Centres for Disease Control, UNICEF, and the World Health Organization. We rely on them to excel at their jobs. But that is not enough. We also need people whose jobs have nothing to do with the health of poor people to act. That is public will.”
