What exactly is Rotary?
“SERVICE ABOVE SELF” “WE’RE FOR COMMUNITIES”
These statements are the essence of Rotary, and of being a Rotarian.
We in Rotary consider membership of this worldwide organization (1.2 million men and women, 33,000 Clubs, 200+ countries) to be a privilege. Accordingly we follow Rotary’s principles – we put service to others before self-promotion, and we work continuously to improve the lot of those in our communities. We give our time freely and look for no reward other than the thanks of those to whom we are able to give help. These range from the local neighbourhood determined to make its streets a better place to live in, all the way to the global Rotary network dedicated to the eradication of polio.
What do you know about Worsley Rotary Club?
“The Rotary” is probably best known for its Christmas Santa Float collection raising funds for local good causes. But in Worsley Rotary Club we do much more than this including Dragons’ Den; Salford Imagination Library; Foodbanks; “Purple Pinkie”; and many more activities. We have served the community since it was formed in 1978. We currently have 28 members all from different professions or vocations. For those of us who are able to commit to weekly meetings we have a meal together on Tuesdays at the Worsley Novotel, followed by discussions of current projects, or talks from invited speakers or Club members on subjects of interest. See below for links to some of our other Projects.
During 2017 in addition to our weekly Club meetings we formed a new Group within the Club. “Rotary Worsley Bridgewater Satellite” has been set up as an opportunity for people who would like to get involved, to “give something back”, and to make a real difference but have limited time available. The Group currently has 10 members; 5 ladies and 5 men from all walks of life. This Group meets twice a month, on the first Tuesday and third Thursday, at the John Gilbert Pub for an hour or so to discuss Community or Social projects. A current example from June 2018 has been the facilitation of a Charity Celebrity Football Match and Fun Day at AFC Monton, proceeds going to both 2MMs Youth Club in Winton and AFC Monton itself. Email enquiries to our Satellite Group here.
Are you interested in becoming a Rotarian?
We would particularly welcome new members, male and female, who are keen to use their time and talents for the benefit of the local and international communities. There is no age requirement for membership but new blood can bring with it enthusiasm, new ideas, energy and perhaps a more modern approach to some of our activities.
To find out more please email our Membership Secretary here.
