Steve Parsons is Swanage & Purbeck Rotary Club President for 2019/20.
Welcome to the Club’s website!
Scroll through the pages of this site to find up to date information about the Club, what we’ve been doing, what we’ve got planned and links to our District (1110), Rotary Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) and Rotary International (RI) websites, with this year’s theme ‘Rotary Connects the World’.
You’ll also find a page dedicated to our Business Partners, who support us not only financially but in so many other ways. Click on each of their logos to find out more about them and what they do.
Our chosen main charity this year is Julia’s House, who provide practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at their hospice in Poole. The club is hoping to raise significant funds for this very worthy cause over the course of the year.
A thriving membership is the key to the Club being able to continue to do what it does, and we welcome anyone who would like to come along and find out more about us. Just contact our secretary. Our current membership is 39 Rotarians and is made up, more or less equally of men and women, from all walks of life.
The Club’s vision for 2019/20 is to continue to support worthy causes both locally and internationally and be proud of our standing in our community and the many community projects and events that we run, organise and support throughout the year. However we recognise the huge contribution that the local population contributes to our success and are are continually overwhelmed by their support and generosity. Our Club has recently celebrated 60 years of fun, fellowship and fundraising for worthy causes and it has been this collaboration with our community that has made it the success that it is and will continue to be.
Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoy browsing our website. We look forward to meeting many of you at our various events and activities across the year.
