Welcome to the Rotary Club of Malvern
The Rotary Club of Malvern Is a member of Rotary International and Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) and is based in the Worcestershire town near the City of Worcester. Founded in 1947 we comprise 33 people from a variety of backgrounds and have recently celebrated 69 years of service to people less fortunate than ourselves both in the local and international communities. We meet every Monday evening when we dine, enjoy good fellowship, listen to interesting speakers and plan new projects as well as developing existing ones.

Rotary has flourished in Malvern since 1947 and the community work of the Rotary Club is an integral part of life in the town.
We welcome men and women members who share the same common goal to do something worthwhile in the community with a priority being community service and the support of local charities. In addition Malvern Rotary Club supports charitable organisations involved in vital humanitarian work in many parts of the world. We have raised money for international projects, the principle ones being the 'End Polio Now'; Farmers Overseas Action Group and ShelterBox campaigns.
Thanks to Rotary and its partners the world has seen polio cases plummet. When Rotary began its eradication work in 1985, polio was endemic in 125 countries with more than 350,000 new cases each year. This is now down to 256 new cases in the first 8 months of 2013. India has not reported a single case since January 2011. You can learn more about the work of Rotary to eredicate polio by visiting You Tube.
Aquabox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency water purification equipment to areas affected by any sort of disaster.
Locally, Malvern Rotary Club has supported Acorns, the children's hospice; St Richards Hospice; Kaleidoscope; The Cube; Young Malvern and many others. We also provided finance for the purchase of an ultrasound scanner for the new Malvern Hospital.
There is much more to Malvern Rotary Club than can be shown here so why don't you look further into our website or come along to one of our meetings to see for yourself. You will be most welcome.
