A message from our President – Robert Prior

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sheffield Vulcan

Thank you for visiting the Sheffield Vulcan Rotary Club website. We are part of ROTARY INTERNATIONAL, the worldwide network of clubs dedicated to the common good under the banner of “Service above Self”. Ours is a busy club of over 30 active members, men and women who enjoy both socialising and working together to make a difference both locally and internationally.

Our activities include social events for members and partners, work to help local communities and charitable fund-raising for local and international causes.

Sometimes we organise our own fund-raising events, sometimes we support major events like the Sheffield half-marathon, and sometimes we simply carry out collections for charities.  Some of these activities are mentioned below. These efforts are undertaken by groups with particular remits:

  • Community Service has helped  Whirlow Hall Farm Trust events, the St Luke’s Hospice ‘Night Strider’ event and carol singing at Sheffield station.
  • Environmental Service works on the maintenance of Beauchief Gardens, tree and bulb planting and a new initiative to put Swift boxes in suitable sites across the area.
  • Foundation & International supports international charities, especially Rotary’s own End Polio Now partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to eradicate polio worldwide.  Help is also being provided to Ukrainian refugees.
  • Youth and Vocational works with local schools and other youth organisations, providing ‘people power’ to help them with their work. Examples here include supporting local Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) initiatives and helping schools with mock interviews.

As well as the rewarding work outlined above, we sometimes simply enjoy ourselves. We organise dinners celebrating Christmas and Burns Night, and a summer BBQ. We have an active walking group and each year arrange a guided walking tour in a nearby village, most recently visiting Dronfield. We also participate in Rotary local district bowling and quiz competitions.

We are always looking for new members who might enjoy helping in our work and joining our friendly club.

We currently meet on Tuesday evening at 18:30 at The Norfolk Arms on Ringinglow Road
