Who we are
WHAT DOES ROTARY DO?
Belonging to a Rotary Club gives men and women an enjoyable and organised way to make a contribution to their community and make a positive difference across the world.
There are over 34,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries making it the largest Service organisation in the world. This puts Rotary in the unique position of being able to reach people in need all over the planet and respond rapidly when disaster strikes.
Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
The clubs are non religious, non political and open to people of every race, culture and creed.
VECTIS SUNRISE ROTARY CLUB
We meet at 7.30 every Wednesday morning, for breakfast, at the Riverside Centre on the Quay in Newport on the Isle of Wight.
Our club is made up of enthusiastic, fun loving and active people from all walks of life, many of whom have busy working lives. Employed or retired, male or female, young or old, the common bond is a wish to help others, meet new friends and make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate. We get together on a weekly basis to share ideas, pool skills and raise money, not only for underprivileged people around the world, but also for local people and organisations.
All our members also enjoy the active social and sporting life of the club.
If you would like more information please come along on any Wednesday morning or telephone:
