Fundraising for Charities
Nailsworth Rotary Club arranges many fundraising events each year and the funds raised in recent years have helped a wide range of organisations.details
The Rotary Foundation
The Rotary Foundation raises money for End Polio Now, the Rotary Peace Fellowships and innumerable district and global grants worldwide. It supports Rotarians' efforts to change lives and serve communities.details
Discover the Artists - Exhibition and Sale
On August 24th/25th we exhibited over 200 pieces of artwork which had been donated by over 150 artists and which we sold for £40 each in aid of charity.details
We help out with a number of community projects in and around Nailsworth: The Woodland Walk at Stroud Court, Box Wood, Nailsworth Spring Clean, Arkell Centre lunches, Alzheimer's Cafe, Nailsworth Noel and Festival, and Stroud Ambitions.details
Supporting Youth in the Community
Rotary Clubs support young people in many ways, which can be by providing funding but also through involvement in various school activities.details
Club Fellowship and Friendship
Fundraising for charities and helping members of our local community are just two of the reasons why people join Rotary. Friendship, fellowship and having fun are almost as important.details
What is Rotary?
Rotary is a global voluntary organisation with members from all walks of life, and in almost every country around the world. Rotary represents a powerful combination of Fundraising, Community Service, Fellowship, and Fun!
Nailsworth Rotary Club
The Nailsworth Rotary Club was inaugurated in May 2007 and Chartered in October of that year. It now has over 40 members, split almost equally between male and female, and with eight couples. We are an active group who give our time to helping others here in Nailsworth, across the UK, and Internationally.
We have had 11 brilliant years raising funds for several charities, and enjoying many happy social occasions. We meet fortnightly at Egypt Mill Hotel in Nailsworth where we usually have a dinner followed by a talk.
While Fellowship and Fun are a big part of Rotary life, we also recognise the importance of Fundraising for charitable causes. Although a young and relatively small club we have undertaken various physical projects for local charities and the community, in addition to enjoying a busy fundraising year.
Our main charities this year are Great Western Air Ambulance, MIND, and Shelterbox.
If you'd like to learn more about Nailsworth Rotary Club we would love to hear from you - come and visit us at any time - please contact us by email.
We are Registered Charity No. 1124062

Colleen Rothwell - Armenian Pilgrimage
Colleen travelled around Armenia and absorbed its recent as well as distant past [from 5th century onwards]. Armenia adopted Christianity before Rome and its version is somewhat different, and now, because of the recent past, it has a unique purpose.
Be part of a global network of volunteers, trying to make the world a better place. Please also see the 'links & news' page for information from the local district and live feeds from Rotary International and Rotary International in GB&I.
