Welcome to the website of the
Rotary Club of Ashby de la Zouch Castle
As a breakfast Club, we meet every Tuesday morning, except for those that fall immediately after a Bank Holiday. We arrive at about 7.00am for a 7.15am start, and we end at 8.30am.
Our meetings are friendly affairs, with a cycle of Committee Sessions, Business Meetings and Speakers. The whole movement is directed at improving lives both locally and in the wider world.
We support local charities as well as some in other parts of the world. Through Rotary Foundation and specific fund-raising events, we also support Rotary International Projects, such as the recent Polio Eradication programme.
Locally, we work with the other Ashby Rotary Clubs and organisations such as Lions and Round Table, on major fund-raising events and projects. We undertake the Santa Runs in the weeks leading up to Christmas, where we try to reach as many areas as possible, in Ashby de la Zouch, North West Leicestershire and South Derbyshire.
This web site provides more details of the events and the projects we are involved in, but should anyone want more information about our Club, or on the wider family of Rotary, please contact us, using the links provided.
Castle Club was founded (Chartered) in 1995, and we currently have 32 members.
