About us

Northampton is a large market town in the East Midlands, approx. 67 miles Northwest of London on the River Nene, and is the county town of Northamptonshire.

The RotNorthampton Guildhallary Club of Northampton was founded in 1921 and now meets for lunch on Mondays, when we have business and committee meetings, as well  frequent speakers, usually related to our  objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest.

Our Satellite Group members meet on Tuesday evenings when they have a similar programme of service projects and occasional speakers.

The two groups meet regularly for fellowship and joint fund-raising events.  We raise funds for, and plan and implement service projects, both locally and internationally.

We welcome anyone who may be interested in joining us to see what we are all about at lunch on Mondays, or on Tuesday evenings with our Satellite Group.

This website is also full of stories about what we do, and if you have the time why not take a look at the drop down options in the "beefburger" menu above left, to see what we have done in the past and what we have planned for the the future?


Three Rotary Clubs in Northampton combined on Saturday 13 October to raise funds to send Shelterboxes to Indonesia following the 7.5 magnitude earthquake and deadly tsunami that left at least 1,400 people dead in Sulawesi Island.   If you are not aware of the Shelterbox Charity it delivers the essentials that families need to begin rebuilding their lives after disaster.

Each disaster is different, and so is every community. Shelterbox doesn’t believe that one size fits all, so it spends time talking to affected families to make sure it provides the right support at the right time.   A typical box is shown right.  For some disaster-hit communities, the family-sized tents are the best solution until they are able to start rebuilding their homes. In other disasters, heavy duty tarpaulins, ropes and nails are needed to create emergency shelter or to patch-up damaged buildings.

Sometimes it even includes corrugated iron to make resilient roofing, or mattresses to make warehouses habitable – whatever it takes to help people recover from disaster. Shelterbox knows that a home is much more than bricks and mortar or tarpaulin and tent pegs. That’s why it also offers other disaster relief items that are essential for survival, and can help to turn a shelter into a home. 

The three local Clubs were able to show the contents of a typical Shelterbox on Saturday and are grateful to the members of the public who contributed to helping the people of Sulawesi recover from the recent disaster.  On the left Rtns Alan Jukes and Jackie Brame and right, Aileen Stephens, ready with their buckets.


For the second time in three years the Club has been awarded a Presidential Citation.  This is for the 2017/2018 Rotary Year and is based on everything we do, and every member's service input.
