Welcome to Lowestoft East Point Rotary

We are a dual gender club with 32 members. (23 men and 9 Women).

We meet at The Hotel Victoria in Lowestoft every Tuesdays at 6.00 pm for 6.30pm.  www.thehotelvictoria.co.uk

We welcome new members of all ages.

So what is Rotary you may ask?

We are part of  District 1080 – “Rotary in East Anglia” – Most of East Anglia, including Norfolk, Suffolk, and parts of Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire. There are 73 Clubs in District 1080. Rotary International District 1080 comprises about 1929 men and women, in 73 Rotary Clubs spanning the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, a large part of Cambridgeshire and a small part of Essex. We are very much a local club but we are part of a very large global organisation.

Rotary is an international organisation with over 1.3 million members worldwide (July 2015) . We have over 30,000 clubs in more than 200 countries. With over 50,000 members in the UK alone.

All Rotary Clubs are different but we are all a group of people wanting to do good work in the community by volunteering.

Our Club is a Charity Registered Club. Charity Registration No. 1073198

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 children from Warren School.

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.
