The Rotary Club of Ironbridge is part of Rotary International which is a worldwide organisation with over a million members in almost every country spread throughout thousands of local clubs. We meet together to enjoy each other's company and to follow Rotary's guiding principle; Service Above Self. Rotary provides opportunity to give something back to the community, to enjoy each others' company and friendship and to contribute to the overall welfare of our fellow men and women both locally and around the world.
We take part in local Community activities, helping and supporting both young and old. Our youth programmes encourage young people to develop their skills and confidence. There are many events including the national Rotary Young Musician, Young Chef, Young Photographer and Youth Speaks competitions.
We are very visible in Telford collecting at supermarkets for local charities and in the Town Centre around Christmas time when we raise money by wrapping presents. We also support international projects, particularly in Africa - The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Zambia with work parties going out to contribute to local school and community schemes.
We welcome both male and female members of all ages and professions, and we actively encourage the involvement of family at all events, both social and service. Vistors always receive a warm welcome.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
