Welcome to Rotary in
Cumbria and Lancashire

“Being your District Governor has
been an immense honour”

Having become our District Governor on 1st July 2023 for twelve months Pam Holgate has shared her thoughts with us on what has been a fantastic journey.

Pam says “ My role has been visiting Rotary clubs within Cumbria & Lancashire to draw attention to important Rotary issues, participate in projects and offer support, guidance and motivation to members. 

My year has been full of fabulous invitations.  I have travelled the length and breadth of the district, met loads of Rotarians doing amazing work in their communities, chartered Rotakids clubs, listened to the Peace Scholars, watched how we work in partnership with others, assisted in the creation of our Direct membership hub and shared our Sun Never Sets on Rotary story right across the world. 

District Governor Pam

In May we held Rotafest24 – our District Conference with a difference!  It was fantastic to hear the chatter of friendship, see the swapping of ideas, and watch Rotary in Cumbria and Lancashire continue to grow.

We know the eyes into our district are through our social media posts and website. The more I visit clubs and listen to the incredible activities and projects taking place the more I know we need to shout LOUD and PROUD about what we do. 

Being your District Governor has been an immense honour.  What will stay with me forever is the passion and commitment you have for making a difference, no matter how big or small the request you always rise to the challenge and have created happy people everywhere!  Wherever I go and whatever company I am in someone always comments on the social media posts I share about our work, your work and want to know a little more about Rotary.

Let’s keep sharing our Rotary stories, let’s keep creating hope in the world, but most importantly let’s do it whilst having lots and lots of FUN!!”
