Rotary Clubs

When you join a Rotary Club, you become a member of a global family, with over 1.2 million Rotarians around the world. That means just about wherever you are on your travels, one of the 34,000 clubs will be nearby to give you a warm welcome and to help you out if needed. Rotary clubs organise events like days out for disadvantaged children, develop school links, support local charities, encourage young people through activities like Young Chef, make a world of difference helping to organise and support life changing project, like the Polio Eradication project where polio has diminished from 350,000 cases per year 25 years ago to 250 in 2012.
