So what is Rotary all about?

Rotary is about service, serving those less fortunate than ourselves:

  • Making new friends
  • Sharing Skills
  • Being entertained and informed
  • Hands on, practical projects
  • Organising enjoyable fundraising events
  • Having fun


  • Make a real difference to people’s lives
  • Visit other clubs and projects in the UK and abroad
  • Find a friend almost anywhere in the world
  • Are recognised by their distinctive pin badge

There are 51,000 Rotarians in 1,805 Rotary clubs in Britain each with members volunteering their time and skils to improve people’s lives

Exploding the myths:

Rotary is:

  • not secretive
  • not political or faith-based
  • not elitist
  • not male only
  • not just for older people
  • not Lions, Masons or Buffs (although we share some common objectives)
  • no longer bound by strict attendance rules
  • not made up of members with nothing else to do
