Rotary Club - What We Do

By combining their skills and resources, members of Rotary are able to make a real contribution to the lives of others.

Rotary, along with , has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we need your help.

Give Now to Eradicate Polio

In local communities alone, each club raises tens of thousands of pounds for community projects and local charities, often more. Members also volunteer their time – supervising community events, running a host of projects aimed at promoting the achievements of young people, coordinating educational programmes, and supporting local businesses.
