Welcome from President David

My name is David Phillips and although I am originally from Bristol, my wife (Dorothy) and I have been residents of Glossop for the past 40 years where we have raised our two (now adult) daughters.
I am extremely honoured to have been chosen to be the President of Glossop and District Rotary Club for the next twelve months.
Rotary is an international organisation dedicated to serving communities by raising funds in support of local, national and international charities.
Internationally we have been at the forefront of the campaign to eliminate polio and locally we hold an annual jog and fortnightly car boot sales throughout the summer months, in addition to other one-off events, to assist charities like Reuben"™s Retreat and Glossop Mountain Rescue.

We have also added a "˜Donate Button"™ through which you can still make personal donations to our Trust Fund Account, and which is used to make our the donations to the local, National and Global Charities which we support.



We meet at Windy Harbour Hotel each Wednesday evening where we have a meal normally followed by an interesting speaker on many different subjects.

If what we do interests you, please see our poster below showing what being a member of the Club can offer. You can get in touch with us either via the contact number, through this website or our Facebook page. We would really like  to meet you and for you to get involved and join us. So why not give us call / get in touch and come and give us a try?

Paul Harris Fellowship Award


At the 2015 Charter Evening, the highest award the Club can bestow, the prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship Award, was presented to fellow Rotarian Bill Mitchell for his exceptional services working to help relieve poverty in Africa through a little known Charity "“ "˜Tools for Self Reliance"™.

For 17 years Bill quietly, unassumingly and selflessly collected unwanted tools donated by local (and not so local) people, for refurbishment and onward transport to African Countries, to help people in those countries, build sustainable livelihoods, bring about effective and sustainable change to trades people and their communities, so helping to reduce poverty.

This was a fantastic achievement by Bill, and the award a great recognition for Bill and of his work

Sadly, Bill recently lost his battle against Cancer "“ a great loss to the Club, to his family and of his Charity work.

However, the work which Bill began in Glossop for "˜Tools for Self Reliance"™ will continue "“ a fine and fitting legacy by which to remember Bill.

Please note the new telephone contact number on the poster below and if you do have any unwanted tools to donate, please contact us.
