Rotary Foundation Appreciation

Rotary Foundation Appreciation More than 100 Rotarians sat down to the Rotary Foundation Appreciation Dinner in Central London on 15 November 2017. Amongst the guests of honour at the dinner were Mike Webb - Main Board Trustee, John Dunkley - Foundation Chairman for Great Britain and Ireland, Debbie Hodge - President Elect for Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, Steve Munns - Endowments and Major Gifts Coordinator. In addition our District Governor and District Governor Elect, along with many Past District Governors were present. Many awards and certificates for achievements were handed out on the evening. However, the Surya Varsani Trophy this year was presented by Mike Webb to both The City and Shoreditch Club (above left) and the Enfield Chase Club (above right) for their per capita achievement in donations. That two clubs should achieve the same highest per capita donation is a first for us! All told the event was a great success, and tribute goes to District Foundation Chairman Tom Hunt and his team for organising this most enjoyable evening.... | Read more about Rotary Foundation Appreciation | Added 8 hours ago

Preparing for 2018-2019

Preparing for 2018-2019 A group of incoming Club Presidents met at our District Headquarters in central London on Saturday 18 November 2017, to start the process of preparing for the Rotary Year 2018?2019. Rotary in London's training programmes are the envy of many, both within and outside Rotary, and this event set the Agenda for the coming months for those starting a year as Club President in July 2018. There is much to know for a Club President, and there are skills to be developed. The meeting covered many aspects of Rotary that have changed in the last year. Unusually, with Rotary's main computer system being upgraded in the USA on the day, there were problems accessing the live systems. However, carefully planned videos, specially made for the day, allowed system features to be studied despite the upgrade. A similar event will be held on Sunday 26 November 2017 for those that were not able to attend the event shown here. With luck, they will even be able to use the new faster systems for their event. Initial feedback on this event was very positive!  ... | Read more about Preparing for 2018-2019 | Added 2 days ago

What is Rotary?

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs, known as Rotarians, provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, the main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
