Helping people abroad

The Club's foreign conscience - here immunising under-fives in India against Polio. There is no cure for Polio but it is preventable with a vaccine. Only three countries remain endemic. We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988


Helping Young People

Two splendid cups commissioned for our Club's annual Youth Speaks competition. Often won by our talented young people from Abingdon's six secondary schools, our winning teams often go on to the next levels of this national Rotary Competition!


Public Relations

A part of the town's culture


Satellite Club of Abingdon Riverside

An offshoot of the Rotary Club of Abingdon, we want to do lots of local projects as #peopleofaction, part of #rotarymakingadifference, We need people with professional skills to help us achieve bigger and better projects in the community.


The Rotary Foundation - funding our biggest projects

The Rotary Foundation is Rotary International's own charity. It does an enormous amount of good in the world. Watch the video The Heart of Rotary for a flavour!
