Rotary is a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community individuals. Members of Rotary Clubs provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

There are 33,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary’s main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.

Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects both locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners with many charities worldwide.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) has more than 55,000 members in over 1,850 clubs. It is an integral part of Rotary International.

Rotarians organise and support projects that address many of today's key issues, such as health, hunger, violence, drug abuse, the environment and illiteracy. Many Rotary Clubs, like Biggar, give help and assistance to local community projects as well as those further afield.
