Welcome to the website of Rotary International District 1285 which comprises about 1473 men and women in 66 Rotary Clubs in North West England and the Isle of Man. Rotary International worldwide comprises more than 1.2 million women and men who take action together to change their communities and the world.

Through Rotary, our members exchange ideas, forge lifelong relationships, and invest in service projects that make a lasting impact.

From club activities and social events to volunteer projects and networking opportunities, Rotary members strengthen communities through their professions and service. And together, we are changing the world.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation [Rotary's Charity] is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

If you are a Rotarian we hope that you will find this site useful; it aims to provide useful information for club officers and members and a convenient method of disseminating  information from District Officers and District committees. Crocus Orders can be accessed here. Foundation Grant application form can be accessed as pdf here, and as word here

If you are not a Rotarian we invite you to explore our pages. You will also find lots of information about Rotary on the national website.  If Rotary appeals to you then please feel free to contact any of our clubs in your area; they will be pleased to hear from you.
