Rotary is where neighbours, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. Preston Rotarians are active volunteers who get together most weeks of the year for lunch, friendship and to undertake projects in the local and international community that have a lasting impact. We have a varied programme of informative guest speakers and enjoy social events such as evening dinners at good local restaurants.
Our members give their time and talents to serve the local and international community, in order to help those less fortunate.
The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” which conveys the humanitarian spirit of over 1.2 million Rotarians throughout the world.
Rotary is a non-religious, non-political organisation that is one of the largest non-governmental providers of humanitarian, educational and cultural support programmes in the world.
Rotarians encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help to build goodwill and peace.
We meet every Wednesday for lunch in the Invincibles Stand Guild Lounge at Preston North End' Football Club’s Deepdale stadium. Where there is a fifth Wednesday in the month, partners are invited to an evening meal at a local restaurant.
Whether you are volunteering by helping your local community set up a foodbank or responding to local and international disasters, there is a project or activity to suit everyone. By volunteering with Rotary, you know that you will be changing people’s lives for the better.
Being part of Rotary is more than just giving back to the community by volunteering. It is also about you bringing your skills, experience and enthusiasm to help it thrive, whilst making some great friends along the way. Our clubs are friendly places which invite speakers from a wide range of backgrounds to share their knowledge, increasing your social and cultural understanding. Members also share a common interest in friendship and if you visit any of our clubs around Great Britain and Ireland you will immediately feel the sense of camaraderie and fun.
