About us

Port Talbot's had a Rotary Club since 1927, and we're still here, raising money within the community, and using it locally and internationally - it's our 90th birthday this year!

Locally, in the last twelve months alone, we've run a Youth Speaks competition in which pupils from local schools compete in a public speaking event. We've sent two secondary school pupils on a Rotary Youth Leadership scheme, designed to teach leadership skills, and taken two coach-loads of handicapped children to Folly Farm for the day, part of a National Rotary Program called 'Kid's Day Out'. At Christmas, we donated almost a thousand pounds worth of food parcels to Port Talbot families less fortunate than most. 

Internationally we've donated funds towards the elimination of polio (a Rotary project for thirty-five years, and we're almost there) and for crises in Africa and Asia.

Much of our funds are raised from the community, but we're exceptionally lucky to have two Interact Clubs (very young Rotarians), at Dyffryn Comprehensive and at Ysgol Bae Baglan who made donations towards our programmes. We're also supported by a number of local  businesses.

We are a part of Rotary International, which is the world's largest service organisation. As a club we raise money and direct it towards local, national and international charities, as we decide. It's a very sociable way of doing some good. World-wide Rotary has over 1.2m members and we welcome new members to join us. Get in touch via contact us.  

If you're a Rotarian visiting the area you're very welcome to join us at one of our meetings, just send an email via contact us, we meet every Tuesday evening (except during August or after a bank holiday Monday) at the Aberavon Beach Hotel.
