About us

 

Welcome to The Rotary Club of Peterborough Ortons, 

 

 

Welcome to our website.

Please take a few minutes to browse and see just what our club is involved in and how we manage to combine work with pleasure. We have a lot of fun and the friendships go far and wide.

Our club Chartered in 1977 so this year we are celebrating our 40th year of making a difference locally, nationally and internationally. As one of the largest service organisations in the world, Rotary has more than 1.2 million business and professional men and women who help those in need. Service projects benefit the underprivileged, the ill and the disabled. The Rotary Foundation gives more than $169 million every year for educational and humanitarian programmes.

In our club we are very involved with the young people in our community and worldwide. We facilitate opportunities for young people to travel to almost anywhere in the world and experience foreign culture with the Short Term Exchange and Camps and Tours programmes. We run local Youth Projects that encourage young people's skills and talents and support a local school with Mock Interviews.

Members volunteer in a wide range of community projects that involve all ages. We arrange various events, large and small to raise money for charities and join with other clubs to promote local and international needs, when required.

More than anything, we have fun and make friends. If you would like to make a difference, enjoy making friends and would like to find out more about being part of a well-respected worldwide organisation, then please contact us to find out more.

New members are assured of a warm welcome.
