Community

Dragon Boat Race Knottingley

Rotary is at the heart of every community. Wherever there is a town or a city, there is a Rotary club and members are passionate about the communities in which they live and work. They stand up for their communities locally and overseas; they support those who need help; they strive to improve lives and the surround area.

Our growing club helps out the local community and all the villages in the surrounding areas by holding events and fundraisers. We also support many local clubs, groups, charities, businesses, organisations and schools in the area. We are very passionate about where we live and love to help and provide some wonderful activities for the residents and businesses.

We also carry out several monthly carboot sales, on the second Sunday of each month from April to September at Milford Plant Centre on the bypass.
