About us

Welcome to Rotary York Ainsty

Welcome to Rotary York Ainsty. We were founded in 1960 to give an opportunity for local people to get involved with York and its many communities. RYA meets each week on Monday nights at the Merrcure Hotel, both as a social get-together and to discuss club activities and projects - both at home and abroad. 

Rotary is a network of women and men who support their local communities and international projects, to improve the lives of people in these communities.

Over the years we have raised and distributed many thousands of pounds and instigated many home and overseas projects.
There are almost 50,000 rotarians in Great Britain and Ireland and 1.2 million work-wide.

Please scroll / swipe down through the pages to find out more about us. In addition, all pages are listed with links in the top left menu drop-down box. 

We also support projects world-wide, many funded by The Rotary Foundation, our own charity. Perhaps the most significant of these is Polio Plus, our joint initiative with the World Health Organnisation and others to eradicate polio from the world.
