Rotary Club of Sittingbourne Invicta
We like to connect with others & become actively involved within our Sittingbourne (UK) community. Internationally, we're proud to be helping to eradicate polio from the world. As a group of friends, we have much fun and enjoy a range of sporting & social activities together.
We welcome enquiries from people who would like to work with us towards our goal of improving our community locally, nationally and internationally.
This Rotary year we will:
- organise our 7th annual Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race
- continue supporting the End Polio Now campaign
- have fun at our Rotary South East Conference in Eastbourne
- again be inviting Community Chest bids for funding from local clubs/groups

Visit to Sikh Temple
A group of 26 club members and partners visited the Siri GuruNanak Darbar Gurdwaras (Sikh place of worship) at Gravesend on Monday 28th November 2016.
Our host was Rotarian Kang from the Rotary Club of Gravesend and Meopham, who split the group into three for a tour of the temple.
The visit ended with pangat; a free community kitchen that produced a wholesome vegetarian meal for us (normally served with dignity to everyone irrespective of one's own colour, casre, creed or status).
