About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Birmingham, England. 

We meet weekly on Mondays  (except for bank holidays)

 in the leafy suburbs of Edgbaston.

 

Scroll down the menu at the top left of the page to ‘Meetings’

and then to ‘When and Where’ for further details.

 Rotary was formed in 1905 in Chicago, USA for the sole purpose of raising funds to help those in need.  This is still its purpose today, raising funds for local, national and international charities. 

The charities that this club supports (amongst others) are:

Kids Day Out, Shelterbox, Saving Lives, 

Merton House Hotel providing holidays for the frail elderly and those with disabilities.

The Azad Choudhury Academy, an independent school providing education for 10 villages whose children would otherwise not gain any education at all.

And amongst many others we include:

St. Mary's Hospice, the Salvation Army and numerous small local charities. 

Meetings are held each Monday and we welcome visitors. 

The Inaugural meeting of this club was held in 1913 with 35 potential members.  Within two weeks there were 56 members. 

The Club Charter was granted in 1914 making this the 8th club in Great Britain and Ireland.  

In 1916 the annual conferernce of the British Association of Rotary Clubs was held in Birmingham and delegates were welcomed by the then Lord Mayor, Neville Chamberlain.  He became the first Lord Mayor to be made an Honorary Member, a practice that continues to this day.
