If Rotary sounds like the organisation for you, we'd like to hear from you!
We're for Communities! Do you think Rotary is just for old semi/retired businessmen? You couldn't be more mistaken. Today more and more young men and women join the world's largest service organisation.
- Do you want to join the fight to see an end to Polio in the world?
- Do you want to meet like minded people who want to make a difference in their community?
- Do you want to explore business networking opportunities?
- Do you want to help provide opportunities for youngsters to develop new skills or show off existing skills/talent?
- Do you want the chance to enrich your social life?
If the answer to any of these is "yes", then as this video shows, Rotary could be for you.
When you join Rotary, you can be sure that the enormous sense of achievement that you'll experience helping your local community - and even communities around the world - will be matched only by the fun that you'll have doing it!
Clubs all over the South West Peninsular have ambitious plans, so they're looking for more men and women to bring their energy, business skills and sense of humour to make a real difference to the lives of others.
Every Rotary club has a different 'personality' and offers a different range of benefits so it's well worth trying out a few of your local clubs and meeting their members to find the one that suits you best.

Benefits of membership
As a large and diverse organisation, Rotary provides individuals with the power to help those in need. There are countless opportunities to make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy - make friends in your own community and throughout the world.
Giving back to the community
Through Rotary, service to local and overseas communities is well organised and rewarding. If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile and make a real difference.
Fun and entertainment
Rotary is fun... a lot of fun. Every Rotary club and district arranges parties and activities that provide a welcome distraction to a hectic business life.
Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from every business community and its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.
Personal growth and development
Membership of Rotary develops leadership, public speaking, social, business, personal and vocational skills as well as improving cultural awareness.
Clubs organise programmes and weekly meetings to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers on a variety of current topics.
Every Rotarian is welcome - even encouraged - to attend any of the 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical regions. This bond creates an instant friendship wherever you are in the world. Many a Rotarian in need of a local doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, or other expertise while travelling has found assistance through Rotary.
Friends of Rotary
If you like the idea of Rotary but feel you can't commit to becoming a member but would still like to become involved, Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland are trying a new initiative - Friends of Rotary - whereby you would not be a Rotarian but could still help out on certain projects. Please get in touch if this appeals to you.
