The Rotary Club of Crompton and Royton was founded in 1956. We are a friendly club of approximately 30 members living or working in the Crompton and Royton areas, on the edge of the Pennines to the northeast of Manchester.
We hope you find something of the fun and friendship of our Club in these pages, as well as the good that we do for our local community and for Rotary throughout the world.
The slideshow pictures above show recent activities of the club, including the lunch which celebrates the achievements of some of the organisations we support.
At our weekly meetings we have a range of interesting speakers, and some recent examples can be found here.
The general areas in which we work are given below.
The club supports a number of International charities, both practically and financially, including ShelterBox, Rotary Shoebox Appeal, Water Aid, and Tools for Self Reliance. There is currently a special appeal by Tools for Self Reliance for second hand sewing machines.
Involvement in the local community
Each week club members provide transport to the Terence O'Grady Social Club in Oldham. They also provide support over the year to Dr Kershaws Hospice in Royton. In addition club members provide outings for Senior Citizens, arrange blood pressure checks as part of Stroke Awareness Day and collect money for local charities via the Christmas Cash Collection.
Initiatives for Young People
The Club works with schools, and youth organisations, and supports Rotary initiatives for young people. In addition to offering opportunities for young people to develop their skills, and celebrating their achievements, there is the possibility of co-operation on a number of community and international projects.
Activities for members
The Club has an active social calendar. In addition to our annual Ladies Evening, Christmas Party and BBQ we have a number of other events where we can enjoy ourselves and also raise money for good causes. If you would like further information, or would be interested in attending one of our meetings, please contact us.
