We support humanitarian causes worldwide. An international network of clubs in over 200 countries provides an invaluable source of local knowledge and assistance. This ensures projects are delivered efficiently and effectively.



Do you have a topic you'd like to give a short (15-20 minutes) after - lunch talk or presentation on? Our Club welcomes approaches from speakers addressing informational, educational or public-awareness issues.



Rotary partners with KidsOut "the fun & happiness charity" to take more than 25,000 disadvantaged children across the UK on a National Day Out in June each year as well as a Festive Fun Day in December.
