WELCOME to Rotary in Great Harwood and Rishton

We are a local group of people who have fun and raise money for local and International good causes

The Purple 4 Polio campaign got into full swing in our two towns with the planting of Rotary Crocuses.


About us

We are neighbours, community leaders and global citizens uniting for the common good.

With you, we can accomplish even more.

            Rotary Clubs are at our heart

they bring together dedicated individuals to exchange ideas, build relationships, and take action.

            Rotary International

supports Rotary clubs worldwide, coordinating global programs, campaigns, and initiatives.

  The Rotary Foundation

uses generous donations to fund projects by Rotarians and our partners in communities around the world. 

As a nonprofit fund, all of the Foundation's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by Rotarians and friends who share our vision of a better world.
