What is Rotary? Men and Women of all ages who are business and professional people or community leaders, keen to utilise their skills and resources to help others. With 34,000 Rotary Clubs in 200 countries across the world, boasting 1.2 million Members, Rotary is far reaching. In Great Britain and Ireland alone, there are more than 51,000 Rotarians in 1,810 Clubs. Each Member enjoys the opportunity to give something back to communities at home and abroad, learning new skills, expand their social network and have a huge amount of fun in the process. Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners many charities worldwide. Members initiate projects which address the needs of their local communities such as running food banks or fundraising for their local children's hospice. What Rotarians do By combining their skills and resources, each Rotarian is able to make a real contribution to the lives of others. Rotary is a huge business networking opportunity. Members come from all walks of life, and work together to the benefit of Members and the community.
