About us


Welcome to the Home page of the Rotary Club of Truro Web Site. I hope your visit will give you a glimpse into the world of Rotary International and an insight into the fun and fellowship that is part of this amazing worldwide organisation which has more than 1.3 million members.

Our club was formed in 1922 and, from its foundation right through to the present day, our focus has been about helping our local community. Today we give a little of our time each month to support projects like the Truro Memory Cafe, the Food Bank, the Truro Disabled Club and the Parkinson's hub, all of which are incredible projects helping local residents deal with their daily challenges. We also help organisations including the Royal British Legion with their annual "Poppy appeal", and provide local young people with innovative programmes and support designed to help in their personal development.

Our Club consists of 23 members, both men and women,who come from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life.

We find that those approaching retirement,or those newly retired, are often attracted to the idea of helping their local community after a busy working life whilst at the same time,enjoying the friendship that Rotary offers.

If you would like to find out more about our club, please contact us .You can email us at rotarytruro@gmail.com  or click the contact link at the bottom of this page. Please ensure that you include your contact details in any message you send.

If you are a serving Rotarian wishing to visit our club we can offer you the warmest of welcomes

Best wishes

CURRENT EVENTS AT THE ROTARY CLUB OF TRURO                                        2018 - 2019

The  Rotary Year 2017 -2018 concluded at the end of June and President David Crossley handed over the Presidency to our New President John Simpson and this inauguration took place on Tuesday June 26h 

Thank you David  for a great year and good luck to John for 2018/2019




The final quarter of the year started with a flurry of activity, as the Annual Christmas collection was quickly creeping up on us at TRURO ROTARY. Once again  our interepid inventor Rotarian John Simpson rer-entered  his "High-Tec" workshop in Perranaworthal , dusted down his 2015 creation of the Barrel Organ, and re-polished for this years Annual Event at several locations in Truro namely Sainsbury's, Treliske Hospital and Park & Ride 

Following several further  software updates of a genre of musical melodies, the latest  version was re-  launched  early in December with a fanfare of trumpets to continue its long career as a Fund Raiser. At the same time a posse of volunteers was let loose with collecting buckets, a sight not to miss, to raise funds for their chosen Local Charities............ and again  what a success it was !

Over a period of 3 weeks we are delghted to say that Truro Rotary members together with the Satellite Club and Members of Inner Wheel plus the  Barrel Organ was "instrumental" in collecting £1147 from Sainsburys, £726 from Treliske , and £794 from Park & Ride - a total of £2076 .

" Many thanks, Citizens of Truro" !! Your contributions will go to many local needy causes .

Cycle Ride in Support of Help for Heroes -2014


Our Satellite Club Rotary team  completed their marathon trip to London and arrived safely at Horseguards Parade to a rapturous welcome and President Cathie reports that 

 "The Team made it to London, all 320 mies, in great spirits and they did so well. The final day in London was so moving.

We coud not have done it without the support of family and friends along the way, especially Rotarians in Plymouth, Yeovil and in particular, Peter and Diana Allin in Camberly, who looked after us in their home for the last two nights

We also had great support from the team from the Naval Service Recovery Centre in Plymouth and the Service personnel in Exeter,Yeovilton and Tidworth

Fantastic weather scenery and team spirit - we all had the time of our lives "

Golden Anniversary Charity Concert 2013 raised over £2000

On Friday 23rd August Truro Rotary Club hosted a charity concert at Truro Methodist Church featuring the Caldicot Male Voice Choir from South Wales as part of their golden anniversary celebrations. It was fifty years ago that the men from the Llanwern steelworks near Newport got together to form a male voice choir which has grown from strength to strength winning awards and eisteddfods, touring North America and Europe, performing on cruise ships and it was fitting that they were chosen to sing for Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The concert was organised to raise money for a number of local Rotary charities principally Truro Memory Cafe and for the James Parkinson Centre for people with Parkinson�s disease. Well over £2000 was raised on the night.
