The idea of a Rotary Club is over 100 years old, the organisation having been founded in 1905. But how many people actually know what being a member entails, or, indeed, how to become a member. I certainly don't. I've heard of them, especially Turton Rotary Club, primarily through my work with Dunscar Conservative Club, but serving several of the members from behind the bar is the extent of my knowledge on the subject.
Turton Rotary Club are one of 29,000 Rotary clubs in 161 different countries, comprising approximately 1.2million Rotarians. It is an organisation made up of business and professional persons, united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Although just one of their areas, charitable donations made by the Rotary Club make a huge impact in the local community, affecting many people around you, without the club getting the recognition it really deserves. In the past year, Turton Rotary Club has donated over £23,000 to a great variety of charities including Bolton Lads & Girls Club, Bolton Daytrippers and Shelter Box Trust.
As you can see, the Club do great work, and they're inviting you to an evening of discovery, information and enlightenment, where you can find out all there is to know about Turton Rotary Club and the wider network, the work they do, and how you can become a fellow Rotarian. You'll be in excellent company, with several of our business members featuring as prominent members, including Mark (Director of Digicomm BCS), Jim (Director of JKT Design) and Andy (from Bromley's Independent Funeral Services).
