Our Christmas collections at Sainsbury's on Saturday 9th , LIDL on Saturday 18th and Waitrose on Thursday 21st December together with our tombola at the Vistorian Evening on the 17th have raised £1,732 for local causes. Thank you to everyone who contributed and the supermarkets who allowed us to collect.

Portishead Rotary donated woollen hats, scarves and gloves, knitted by local residents, to The Clevedon and District Foodbank for distribution to those in need this winter on Monday 11th December.

What is Rotary?

Rotary has 33,000 clubs in 200 countries representing a network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.

Our differing occupations, cultures, and countries give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish the remarkable.


We work with youth to create our future leaders:

• by challenging our young to apply their skills. Through a number of national competitions we help them to achieve pride in their work.

We support those in our community:

• and look for projects which will make a difference to people’s lives.

We help local charities and causes raise funds for their projects:  

• we both organise fund-raising events and directly collect funds to help them carry out their work.

We aim to make a difference both here in Portishead and around the world.


Our impact starts with our members: people who work tirelessly within clubs like Portishead Rotary to solve some of our communities' toughest challenges. 

Our efforts are supplemented by Rotary International, our member association, and The Rotary Foundation, which in turn support our work around the world. 

Rotary is a “bottom-up”, member led, organisation where the focus is on making a difference locally at the same time as supporting projects across the world that make a difference to the communities they reach.

Our Club

The Rotary Club of Portishead meets every Tuesday evening at Clarence House for a meal and we normally have a speaker presenting a subject relevant to our work within the community and Rotary.

We also talk and plan what we can do for the local community as a group as well as supporting projects .located both in the UK and internationally
