If you're looking to join a Rotary club in Oxford, or are new to Oxford and are looking to find a group of people to join then this is the place for you. Below is a list of available Rotary Clubs in Oxford.
Oxford Spires is one of Rotary’s younger and less formal clubs. Our members come from across Oxfordshire, both men and women, all of working age, and from a range of professions and backgrounds. We run our own community projects and fundraising activities, most famously the World Pooh Sticks Championships and the onion bhaji stall at the Truck music festival. We also support other local clubs and get involved in wider Rotary initiatives, so we have plenty of opportunities for volunteering and socialising.
Oxford North Rotary Club meets for lunch at the Cotswold Lodge Hotel each Wednesday. We support Oxford Round Table at the Oxford Fireworks display each November, we have exchange visits with our partner club Lyon Nord, and we fundraise with Santa and his sleigh each year.
Oxford Isis Rotary Club meets for dinner on Thursdays at the Oxford Golf Club. We organise the Cowley Classic Car Show each August, and collections for Rotary’s Polio Eradication campaign each October.
The Rotaract Club of Oxford is part of the Rotary family aimed at people aged between 18 and 30. We are an Oxford-based community dedicated to doing good things to the local, national and international community, as well as getting together for fun activities.
Founded in 1922, Oxford Rotary Club is the oldest Rotary Club in the Oxford area. We are a forward-looking club seeking new and younger members of both sexes to carry us forward to our centenary and beyond. Our membership is drawn from leaders in the professional, business and voluntary sectors in Oxford and the aim of our Club, as of all Rotary Clubs, is to promote fellowship among our members, high ethical standards in business, and service in our local community and worldwide. We meet at 12.45 each Monday for lunch at the Randolph Hotel.
Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary and we offer both clubs and programmes to help young people develop their skills. Through these groups participants can serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships and much more.
Programmes include New Generations Service Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), and Rotary Youth Exchange.
We run annual national competitions for young people up to the age of 18 to develop their skills. We also run an annual awards scheme to recognise young people under 25 who have made a positive social impact through demonstrating good citizenship.
Competitions include Young Chef, Youth Speaks, Young Musician, Young Photographer, Young Writer, Technology Tournament and Young Citizen Awards
We support and work in partnership with a wide range of charities and projects at a local and national level. By combining our skills, time and resources, we are able to successfully deliver local and national campaigns which have a positive impact in our communities.
We support humanitarian causes in every continent of the world and our international network of clubs in over 200 countries provides us with an invaluable source of local knowledge and assistance. This ensures that our projects are delivered in the most efficient and cost effective way.
We are especially dedicated to ending polio. Our members have persevered in this fight since 1979 and have now helped eradicate the disease in all but three countries worldwide.
