About us



Rotary is open to people from all sectors of the Community.

Members of Cheltenham Rotary Club believe that all people should be offered the opportunity to serve their community, here locally or internationally.

We follow one of Rotary's basic principles of "Service above Self" and in that service together comes fellowship. We believe there is fellowship in helping and serving others.

The Club meets every Tuesday evening to review the ongoing projects and to hear from an informed speaker, usually from outside of Rotary, about charity projects, initiatives of local groups or just something of general interest.

During the evening there is a chance to do some business networking.

Many Club members at sometime volunteer their efforts to improve the quality of life of people less fortunate than themselves in their own communities or further afield, internationally.

Cheltenham Rotary Club has several ongoing projects such as helping funding for schools for the Life Education Centres mobile classroom, Christmas Parcels for the poor and needy locally, Education Business Partnership, literacy campaigns and ShelterBox.

If you are inspired and interested and want to give something back to the community, please come along to one of our meetings. Please contact us on 01242 238155. If the phone is unattended please leave a message and we will get back to you.
