So what is Rotary?

Rotary was started by Paul Harris in Chicago in 1905 as a means of bringing people from all backgrounds together for the purpose of giving back to their communities and improving the lives of those less fortunate by promoting causes such as health, peace, literacy and the environment.

There are now approximately 1.4 million members worldwide including 40,000 in the UK and Ireland alone.

Lowestoft East Point is part of Rotary in East Anglia (District 1080) which consists of over 60 Clubs and over 1300 active Rotarians.

The Club raises funds which are distributed through its registered charity.

Who becomes a Rotarian?

Rotarians are People of Action who use their time, energy and passion to make a difference to their communities and beyond.

Rotary is a way of increasing your circle of friends and having fun.

 

Service above Self

The Rotary motto is ‘Service above Self’ so it is not just about fundraising.

There are various local projects in which our members are involved – such as Waveney Sailability, a sailing group for disabled people, and Kids Day Out for disadvantaged children from the local community.

A very successful project which has been running of a number of years is Dictionaries for Life. Along with the other Lowestoft Clubs, we provide an illustrated dictionary for every year 3 child in the town, supporting the schools’ drive to improve literacy rates.

Many Lowestoft residents probably know us best for our Santa Sleigh’s ride through the streets of Lowestoft to meet the town’s children and to raise money for our good causes.

These are just a few examples of the good causes that the club supports.
