News update

After being inspired by a presentation during the Rotary District Conference in Bournemouth (how many years ago was that?) we have been trying since then to establish a website (and Facebook page) for the club. Thanks to Jo Byrne who has been so patient and created a more interesting and accessible site, on Tuesday evening Immediate Past President Judith Proctor received a trophy from John Dehnal and District 1070 as the new website was judged as 2nd (runner up) in the competition held by Communications team.

 

Who We Are

 

The Rotary Club of Leicester De Montfort was chartered in 1995 and has operated in Leicester City Centre ever since.

 

The club follows the ideals of Rotary International Service above Self

 

Rotarians are groups of people who come together at weekly meetings to see how they can use their skills to help others.

 

Rotarians are unpaid volunteers.

 

ALL the money collected and raised by Rotarians is used for good causes.

NO money is deducted or used for administration.

The cost of administration is met by the membership fees. Each member pays an annual fee of £150.

 

There are over 1.2 million members paying fees to Rotary International. The Rotary International Head Quarters is located in Evanston, USA and that office conducts the administration of all the Rotary Clubs (approx 32,000 continually changing as new clubs are chartered and old clubs close down)

 

What do we do?... The motto of Rotary is 'Service Above Self', and it is in that spirit that we offer help to the local community. We organise events to raise money for worthwhile causes, both at home and abroad. We are now devising ways for members to offer more hands-on Service. Like all Clubs we belong because we enjoy doing what we do, both as Rotarians and as members of our Club in particular.

 

How the Club works...The Club meets once a week for breakfast, and we aim to finish by 8.30 am.  We start at 7.15 am with a 2 course breakfast (vegetarian options available), after which the business of the Club is transacted, or there is a talk by a visiting speaker. Important issues are discussed at the monthly Club Council prior to being recommended to the members.

 

How and why we raise money... Charity monies are raised by a wide range of regular activities including a range of social events.  You can find out more about what we plan in NEWS & EVENTS. Monies raised are used to donate to local, national, and international causes such as End Polio Now.  Click on the icons below for more details of some of the charities we actively support.
