Welcome to the website of The Rotary Club of Belfast. Please explore and get a flavour of how volunteer Rotarians use their skills and vocations throughout our various projects to improve life for people less fortunate than ourselves at home and abroad and the fun and fellowship we enjoy being members of the family of Rotary.

The Rotary Club of Belfast is a vibrant club, welcoming and friendly and we welcome visitors from the World of Rotary at any time.

PresRonniePI am honoured to have been invited to act as President of the Rotary Club of Belfast for the incoming year. The Rotary Club of Belfast was founded in 1911 and has been serving members and supporting deserving causes ever since.

President of Rotary International for 2015-16 is K R 'Ravi' Ravindra from Colombo in Sri Lanka. He has taken as his theme 'Be a Gift to the World' and encourages all Rotarians to use whatever gifts we may have to make a genuine difference to the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves!

We plan to continue with our tried and tested mix of international, local and social projects throughout the year, with an emphasis on enjoying whatever we undertake in the name of Rotary. Hopefully we can make a difference to the lives of the people we set out to help and improve their chances of contributing positively to society!

We extend a welcome to all at our Monday meetings and if, after reviewing our aims and activities, you would consider joining Rotary, please do not hesitate to contact us.
