About Rotary

In some people’s eyes, Rotary is a dining club for gentlemen of a certain age and the typical Rotarian looks and acts a bit like Captain George Mainwaring of Dad’s Army. I hope some of our recent fund raising events will help to change some of these perceptions and demonstrate what a modern day Rotary Club is all about and what Rotary really means to its members and its projects.

The Rotary Club of Lancaster is made up from a collection of like minded business or professional people, who are still working or are retired, and are prepared to give their time, pool skills and as a team, help to organise a series of fund raising events. One such event is called Wrynose or Bust, which is a cycling sportive day organised to raise and distribute much needed cash for local and international charitable projects.

Our club is part of a global network of Rotary clubs, operating in 168 countries and made up of similar like-minded people. 1.2 million Rotarians throughout the world, share the same goals, to serve the community locally, nationally and globally, while promoting the highest ethical standards.

If you would like to join a Club like ours at Lancaster, you will become part of the worldwide Rotary fellowship, working towards peace and goodwill, and we all share the same moto, Service above Self.

This moto says all you need to know about the significance of what Rotary means today. No single person could achieve a fraction of the good that collectively Rotarians can achieve now and in the future. At times of great need, Rotarians have the reputation of being the first in and the last out.

Whether it is floods in Cumbria or Pakistan, tsunamis, famine, earthquake or deseases, whatever the situation, be it disability or tackling illiteracy or clearing up the town park, there will be a team of Rotarians involved, trying to make a difference.

But Rotarians cannot do everything in isolation and Rotary always relies on the help and goodwill of the general public.
