We are a friendly club of just under 50 men and women, sharing lots of fun and fellowship.
On Mondays we meet at Pirelli Stadium, the home of Burton Albion Football Club. Usually, after lunch, a speaker presents a topic relevant to our community, our charity work, or to Rotary more widely.
To sustain our help for those in need - locally, nationally and internationally - we raise funds through the Pirelli Stadium Parade, street collections, concerts and shows, quizzes, suppers, dinners, and anything else that springs to mind!
