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 Rotary Club of Northampton was founded in 1921 and now meets at the Sunley Management Centre at the University of Northampton for lunch on Mondays. We raise funds for, and plan and implement service projects, both locally and internationally.
We also have lunchtime speakers, usually related to our objective of providing service to others, but sometimes of general interest.
Some members meet on Tuesday evenings at Richmond Village, where they have a similar programme of service projects and occasional speakers. The two groups meet regularly for fellowship and joint fund-raising events.
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 Programme options above to see what we have done in the past, and what we have planned for the the future?
Join Rotary and make a world of difference to your own community, to the lives of those less fortunate around the world, to your fellow club members - like-minded men and women of all ages - and, just as important, to yourself! The projects Rotarians get involved in are incredibly fulfilling, worthwhile and rewarding - and there's plenty of fun involved.

Rotary in Northampton will be 100 years
old in the Rotary Year 2021/22. The first meeting was held on 11 April
1921, with the first Luncheon meeting on 18 July 1921 and official
membership of Rotary International was granted by Charter on 1 February
1922. Since 1922 Rotary Club members in Northampton have contributed
through voluntary service to countless local and overseas projects,
raising money for many local, national and international charities as
well as carrying out a huge number of hands-on projects to help local
schools, retirement and nursing homes and charities etc.
We would now like suggestions from local people for a project that
would enhance the town, or be of assistance to its people to mark this
100th Anniversary. Perhaps something for the disabled, the aged or
young children that would make their lives better – anything will be
considered, subject to the receipt of planning permission, if required,
or approval if there are any other potential restrictions.
If you would like to make a suggestion for the project just click
on the "Contact us" link at the top and select "Centennial Project" and
tell us what you propose.
We will be holding Fundraising events
to provide the funds for this project, the first of which is a
Northampton Rotary Calendar Competition for 2018.
This will show in photographs the best of everything that
Northampton has to offer throughout the year and one photograph will be
used for each month.
To produce this we want people, who live here, to contribute
photographs for each season of the year that show what Northampton has
to offer – architecture, parks, sporting events, whatever the
photographer feels represents why they love Northampton.
Photos must be digital and represent the best of Northampton and be
in landscape format in a ratio of 16:10. No larger than 10Mb and less
than 300dpi. Any files that too small to be reproduced properly will be
rejected. Full Terms and conditions can be found by clicking here
