Description

Rotary in the West of Scotland, has 48 groups which meet regularly on various days and times, during the 'covid-19' restrictions though, some are meeting online. We always need input, so that we are aware of potential needs in our locally communities. To do that we arrange fundraising events and organise various functions or collections. If any of this basic insight, has generated an interest to be involved with Rotary, please feel free to let us know.
