Our aim is to help and support clubs in District 1070 by:

  • Highlighting Rotary International and Rotary in Britain & Ireland emphases for the year ahead.
  • Facilitating a sharing of information on International projects.
  • Providing a forum for clubs to advertise, promote and seek help for their current international projects.
  • Giving feedback on Rotary’s international humanitarian work.

We don’t claim to be able to answer every question – but we will probably know a person that can! We’re here to help – please use us!

Joel Weaver, Chairman of District International Committee, 2019/20.

The Box organisations retain their position as the mainstay of relief work throughout the world where disasters have struck. Clubs are urged to support the box schemes on a regular basis so that a supply is readily available for immediate dispatch in the event of any disaster world wide.
