About us

The Rotary Club of Durham is part of Rotary North East (District 1030) serving North-East England. 

Durham CathedralThe city of Durham is dominated by the Castle and Cathedral situated on the rocky peninsular (a World Heritage site) with the River Wear flowing past on three sides. To quote Sir Walter Scott:-
Grey towers of Durham
Yet well I love thy mixed and massive piles
Half church of God half castle 'gainst the Scot

Things have changed and even the Scots are now welcome! In fact, all visiting Rotarians can be sure of a very warm welcome at any of our weekly meetings.

All the money we raise for charity is processed through the
ROTARY CLUB OF DURHAM CITY TRUST FUND, a registered charity - Number 1010655.
