About us

Southend on Sea Rotary was the first Rotary club in Essex in 1921. We are one of the most diverse clubs in Essex and in recent years have concentrated on three themes for helping the borough: homelessness, mental health and disadvantaged children. In 2018 this has meant donations to local charities such as Street Spirit, Friends and Places, YMCA and Turning Tides. Also projects to help those living with dementia and the famous Kids Out day in June each year, where we help Thorpe Bay Rotary bring children from local schools across south Essex for a disco at Talk and a trip to Adventure Island.
