About Rotary

Rotary is one of the world’s largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations, with 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. It was first established in the in 1905 by lawyer Paul Harris. 

Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, exemplifies its humanitarian spirit.  Club members work to promote peace, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training and eradicate polio from the planet.

Being part of Rotary is more than just giving back to the community by volunteering. It is also about you bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm to help it thrive, whilst making some great friends along the way.

Members of Rotary volunteer their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people in their local communities and others around the world.  They have the opportunity to give something back, to give hope to those less fortunate and to make lives worthwhile and fulfilled.
