Welcome to People of Action
Why not join us and help in transforming our communities
By joining Rotary, you will be on the road to transforming communities.
We fulfil our purpose and achieve our goals thanks to the dedication of our members. At Rotary we have the unique position of being rooted within our own communities but with a global outlook, ready to tackle challenges at home and abroad.
Through membership of Swindon Old Town Rotary you will become part of a network of 1.2 million members, in 35,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries. We are all friends, neighbours, leaders and problem solvers.
Try and try and try before you buy…
Find out more about the commitment and what your skills can bring to our work. Start by coming along to any of our regular meetings and chat to members about our projects and our activities and involvement in local charities Sign up to our Friday Update so you can see which meetings you would like to attend. The cost is £10 per visit to cover the meeting room hire and your full English breakfast
Open to women and men of all ages we would love to tell you more and learn what you would like to see Rotary tackling. We meet at 20 at the Kings in Old Town. The meeting starts at 7.15am and for just over an hour you will enjoy a full English breakfast and meet our members. Rotary is a very well kept secret – help us to spread the word about our causes and our projects.
And if you can’t face the idea of getting up early for breakfast there are four other Rotary clubs in town, one meeting at lunch time, the others in the evenings and covering most days of the week. Read more about the Swindon Rotary Clubs here.
Rotary vs. Polio: A Timeline
Rotary is an international community that brings together leaders who step up to take on the world’s toughest challenges, locally and globally. The eradication of polio is one of our longest standing and most significant efforts. Along with our partners, we have helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won’t stop until we end the disease for good.
