We are looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join the Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles; to use some of their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improve the lives of people in the local community and others around the world.
The rewards you will receive from belonging to Rotary are varied and vast:
1. Fun and friendship
Rotary members have a lot of fun! The Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles arranges parties and activities and gives members the chance to forge new friendships with like-minded people who share common goals.
2. Give something back to the community
Joining Rotary gives you the chance to make a difference. Be it fundraising for a local charity, volunteering at an event, working with young people or building a school in Africa, there is something to suit everyone.
3. Business networking
Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from across the business community and its members come from all walks of life.
4. Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is about companies acting responsibly, ethically, legally and with respect for the community and the environment, all of which are in keeping with Rotary’s own guiding principles, so reflect well on you and your employer.
5. Personal growth and development
Being a member of Rotary can help you develop leadership, public speaking, social and vocational skills as well as improve your cultural awareness. Businesses often encourage their staff to become involved with Rotary to capitalise on these opportunities and notice a marked improvement in skills such as event management, organisation, time management, teamwork and leadership.
A Worldwide Community
By joining Rotary, you become a member of a vast international family of 1.2 million members worldwide. You will be welcome – even encouraged – to attend any of the 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries or regions. This creates an instant sense of belonging, wherever you are in the world.
