About Us

 

We are a small but friendly club of around 20 members with a wide range of age and experience covering many interests.

Like other Rotarians the world over we get involved in a variety of activities and projects aimed at helping others and raising money for organisations that we know will benefit by it.

We are actively seeking new members who may be able to contribute some of their time to enjoy the social aspects of membership whilst also involving themselves in some of the various events and schemes of the group.

What makes the Harrow Rotary Club unique is its emphasis on the International aspects of Rotary. We enjoy active contacts with five other Rotary Clubs (located in France, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Majorca –Spain). Our joint activities culminate in a Reunion each year (six weeks after Easter) at which up to 150 Rotarians and their partners participate. In 2015 we were all in Milan (for a taste of EXPO 2015) and in May 2016 our German colleagues have chartered a boat for a three-night Rhine cruise. In 2017 plans are already being drawn up for a visit to Ghent in Belgium.

We show our joint charitable interest by providing funds on a per capita basis from each club to support a major international project - usually linked to children’s welfare. Harrow last led the group in spending over 150000 US dollars in a Malaria-treatment project in Mali. We also jointly fund youth projects - often involving the formations of a youth orchestra.

 

JOINING ROTARY

Rotarians are members of Rotary clubs. Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. To become a Rotarian you must be invited to join a Rotary club by a member of that club and at the Harrow Club we are always interested in hearing from those who may wish to learn more about Rotary, our club with a view to membership.

Our club is happy to welcome enquiries from any adult who would like to learn more without any committment to joining Rotary. Perhaps you would like to join in one of our events to meet members or just to help with a good cause.

If  you are interested in finding out about joining, attending the Club, helping with a Club event  or meeting us to learn more about the Harrow Rotary Club, please contact our Club Secretary:   David West on 01923-242100 or Email  davidcerriswest@hotmail.co.uk
