History of Rotary International and The Rotary Club of the Wreake Valley

slot cars.Wreake Valley Rotarians


A Chicago lawyer called Paul Harris started the very first Rotary Club on the 23rd of February 1905 with three business friends.

The Rotary Club of the Wreake Valley was founded in 1987 by the Rotary Club of Leicester. Since then we have been involved in many local, regional, national and international projects. You can find out more about our recent and current activities on other pages of this website. 

One of our members, Graham Packwood, comments:" I joined after attending several meetings as a guest. I was reluctant at first because it clashed with my skittles night, but I found I really enjoyed it. What do I get out of it?...fun, friendship and the great satisfaction of being able to help in some way local, national and international causes. Being involved helps me to forget my day to day concerns!"
