Being in One Rotary is a great way of making new friends and connections. It might sound like a bit of a cliché, but it’s true. We’re living proof. We’re not afraid to get stuck in and we’re never short on laughter. Ever.
All Rotarians have a passion; and that passion is to try and make the world a better place, not just for those who aren’t able to support themselves during difficult times, or when disasters occur, but for everyone. Rotarians also like to have fun and we all enjoy what we do.
Volunteering in Rotary is not a chore. If it is, then we’re doing it wrong. The amazing thing about volunteering, is that you can join with other Rotarians with the same passion to help make significant changes in more than 200 countries and geographical locations throughout the world.
Those shared passions make us like-minded, working together to make a positive step-change for humanity and our planet.
Why Rotary? That’s why.
It’s the breadth and variety of what we do in Rotary that surprises people the most. We hold all sorts of brilliant events – to raise money, to create awareness of important issues and to make good things happen.
We champion people from all walks of life at home and abroad. On our home turf, we support young, old and disadvantaged people alongside budding entrepreneurs and businesses.
Around the globe, we support deprived groups and communities in developing countries – helping them to rise from poverty and move towards shared and sustainable prosperity. Our polio campaign has, over 35 years, virtually eliminated the disease worldwide.
You have skills, you have passion, you want to help others and you want to have fun doing it. Rotary needs people like you.
