Making a difference to Communities

Rotary is one of the world’s largest and most successful global membership and humanitarian service organisations, with 1.4 million members in 36,000 clubs in over 200 countries.
We have a unique position of being rooted within our own communities, but with a global outlook, ready to tackle challenges at home and abroad.
We are People of Action, ready to turn our ideas and vision into lasting change, by creating opportunities and supporting those who need it most.


Our activities are hugely varied. Much is with schools, charities and other organisations in and around Banbury. Our ‘can-do’ support literally extends from nursery to hospice and everything between!



We also link into the Thames Valley district and national Great Britain and Ireland Rotary networks  offering opportunities to contribute to projects at regional and national level for those who so choose.


We support numerous Banbury based international projects  and regularly engage with other European Rotary Clubs. Additionally we contribute to Global Rotary projects. The key ‘focus areas’ we support are outlined below.

What are the Rotary Focus Areas

Internationally Rotary has traditionally had six areas of focus.

More recently a seventh (The Environment) has been added and so this is an area we’ll need to more explicitly explore as a club. Maybe you could help?

What do you actually do?


Supporting Young People

With the cooperation of local schools, colleges and clubs we offer a wide range of activities for young people – ranging fom support for individuals through to activities with several hundred participants.

Supporting Communities

Members find themselves engaged in a diverse range of projects: canal clear-ups, planting crocuses to brighten up local areas, supporting local food-banks and hands-on establishment of schools in Africa and India.

Supporting Each Other

We believe Rotary works best when it offers members a supportive atmosphere of real friendship. There are frequent member events you can attend or maybe help organise.

What’s the latest?

Collections for Local Charities

We raise money to support local charities – Katharine House hospice,SocialEyes and RVS Dementia amongst others.

Assisting the vaccine roll-out

Ever since the first covid lockdowns Rotary members have helped with the ongoing vaccination roll-outs in Banbury

Young Photographer

We’ve had to cancel events normally engaging several hundred young people but have created alternatives the most recent one being Young Photographer. Get snapping for the 2021/2 competition.
