About us

We are a group of men and women from a wide spectrum of the Leeds community - from banking, insurance, the legal and accounting professions, the health service and local government, education, the churches and the arts, and from an extensive range of manufacturing and service industries.

We involve ourselves with the local community in a number of ways - with youth and the schools, with the aged and those with special needs, with support for the hospices and the homeless. We subscribe to the aims of the Rotary movement in the promotion of programmes to further international understanding and peace, and to promote literacy, good health, clean water supplies, and the eradication of hunger.

If you have some spare time to put something back into the community, we'd like to hear from you. Have a look at our Membership page (click on 'What we do' above) or contact us HERE. 


Rotary offers you a wide circle of friends both locally and internationally.

Visiting Rotarians and Rotaractors are always welcome. It helps with catering if you can let us know in advance, so contact us here to arrange your visit.
