A Message from the President
The object of Rotary is summed up in the phrase, "Service above Self". The club aims to achieve this by friendship, not only among its members, but also with the local community, its organisations and groups as well as through Rotary International.
Rotary also aims at maintenance of high standards in business and the professions. Rotary recognises the worthiness of all occupations. The club actively supports charities and worthwhile causes locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and is strictly non-political and non-religious in its outlook.
As a Club we fund raise money for local charities such as Children North East and The People’s Kitchen as well as International ones.
However we are not just about fund-raising, because many members give their time and experience to support, for example, projects to help children and young people, the elderly and the disadvantaged. The club helps not only with disaster relief but also ongoing day-to-day projects to encourage all in society to contribute towards helping others and to help all to realise their potential.
The club is about fun too. From Safari Suppers to Wine Tasting, and Sausage Sizzlers, to entertainment and quizes, to walking days, there is scarcely an area of activity which does not involve or interest Rotarians and this is reflected in the range and depth of experience of speakers at the club's weekly meetings.
Rotary is about helping others, but it is also about enjoying the diversity and depth of experience of life and learning from that.
If you think that you can contribute to these activities and help others by being involved to at least some extent, and frankly we have yet to meet anybody who cannot, or you just enjoy good company and good food, we would love to see you at our meetings and events, details of which are given on these pages.
