What is Rotary?

"Service above Self"

We are a small group of friends, male and female, who are committed to helping others by enjoying ourselves. We have a busy social, fundraising and community action programme. Each month we try to have a social event, we invite professionals from all disciplines to talk to us so that we learn more about our world and what we can do to make an impact and we plan our fund raising and community special events.

In Gosport our events include organising our local rounds of the 'Young Chef' and 'Youth Speaks' competitions for local school children; each year we take a children from a local 'Special School' to a Theme Park for 'Kids Out'; we organise the Alverstoke Michaelmas Fayre in partnership with St. Mary's church; we organise the collection of Christmas Shoeboxes from local schools and organisations to join our District collection who then send them to Rotary Clubs in Africa and Eastern Europe for distribution to needy children; the 'Santa's Sleigh Tour of Gosport' is staffed to ensure as many children as possible get to have a word with Santa.

Our 'International' status means that any Rotarian is entitled to visit another Rotary Club anywhere in the world subject to confirming the date of their visit. In addition many clubs have formed twinning arrangements with clubs in other countries.

What Rotary is not!

We are not a secret society nor are we a religious group.

We are not a 'stuffy' businessman's dining club, contrary to some popular opinion, we are a group of friendly, talented people from all walks of life, (try being stuffy when you are dressed up in a Scooby Doo suit with a collecting can outside the supermarket!).

We are not a fund raising group who meet for a meal, rather we are a group of people who enjoys each other's company and who fund raise in order to help those that need help and improve life in the community.
