Welcome to The Rotary Club of Swansea Bay website. We hope you find it informative. Forget any preconceptions you may have about Rotary Clubs. We are a forward thinking dual gender club and welcome new members.
Rotary is an international network of local Rotary Clubs. The purpose of Rotary is to Help and Serve the community locally, nationally and internationally. We also raise money for a large variety of charitable causes while also having fun. Contrary to a common misconception, members are not all male, old and middle-class (well, some are) but Swansea Bay Club especially contradicts this image. You can also follow us on Facebook just click on the Facebook link on the right.
We sponsor Rotary Young Leadership Award for local younsters and support the District Youth inititiatives. We raise money usually by a variety of fund raising events such as concerts, fashion shows, our annual boules tournament in Swansea Marina, bucket collections, and sponsored events.
The charities we raise money for are well-known and less well-known local, national and international charities. All have been scrutinised as having a good record of putting a high proportion of their income where it is supposed to go, with low overheads and staff payments.
On the social side we regularly have interesting speakers, visit restaurants, pubs, clubs, concerts and the theatre, dinner parties and weekends away.
