About us

A Message from our President, John Baker

The Rotary Club of Ashby De La Zouch welcomes you. We are part of Rotary International, the largest service organisation and one which is open to all, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation or religion.

The Rotary movement was formed around the concept of those who wanted to use their collective strengths to do some good for others less fortunate and to encourage others to achieve their goals. Hence our motto “Service Above Self” .

Our activities in Ashby try to cater for all age groups, from the young ( Santa Sleigh runs), through teenagers  (Youth Competitions) to older age groups (Concerts and Trips to Stratford-on Avon).

We want to engage with as many people as possible either as individuals or organisations. We also want people to join us of course, but in this ever demanding world we are also happy for people to help us in our events.

We can keep our promise that every penny raised from the public is spent on charities or youth activities. Administration costs are met by the club, not the public.

Our charities include International projects such as supporting a homeless youth hostel in India and contributing to the major Rotary International drive to end Polio.

The majority of our efforts are local, either for individuals or organisations. Last year our key charity was Hospice Hope. This year we will support Home Start Ashby, a group that assists young families and the Chidrens Air Ambulance.

Our aims are simple - Raise as much as we can, give it to worthy cause and have fun at the same time!
