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.

I am honoured to be President of The Rotary Club of Belfast in our 104th year, we were the first club to be formed In the U.K. and the Club has played a prominent part in the Rotary movement in Ireland over many years.

In 2014-15 Rotarians, reflecting the theme set by Rotary International President Gary C.K.Huang, will Light Up Rotary and - through commitment and by sharing service, strengthening clubs and letting Rotarian light shine in more than 34,000 communities - will light up the world.

We are involved in charitable work both at home and overseas, raising money in many interesting and inventive ways. It is important to the members that they have fun and fellowship in all the activities that we take part in. We are also involved in a number of youth projects using our business and professional skills to help young people who have had all sorts of difficulties in their early years.

We are always keen to welcome new members who could associate themselves with Rotary ideals. If you would like to find out more about us please make contact, we would love to hear from you.
