Welcome to the Rotary Club of Rushden
Being part of Rotary is more than just giving back to the community by volunteering. It is also about you bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm to help it thrive, whilst making some friends along the way. Our clubs are friendly places which invite speakers from a wide range of backgrounds to share their knowledge, increasing your social and cultural and community understanding.
Members also share a common interest in friendship and if you visit any of our clubs around Great Britain and Ireland you will immediately feel the sense of camaraderie and fun.
You may have seen us in our yellow tabards supporting a range of local community events such as Rushden’s Party in the Park, Kids Out and local Remembrance Day services. We support may chariities locally each year our community is important to us and on an international basis Rotary is enthusiastically committed to help the drive to wipe out polio from the world and we raise money for shelter boxes, which are distributed throughout the world when disaster strikes, such as the Haiti earthquake or the Pakistan floods. We are an organisation that provides fellowship and fun for its members and their families, yet at the same time supports many good causes at local, national and international levels.
We work closely with local schools to promote excellence and endeavour in their pupils, helping organise local young musician competitions, school quizzes and the Young Achiever of the Year.
