The Rotary Club of Knights Pendragon is a member club of Rotary International, a global organisation of 1.2 million professional and business people united in service of those less fortunate. Founded in 1905, in Chicago, USA, the Rotary International organisation, through its Rotary Foundation and its members, has made significant, meaningful and lasting positive real change to improve the lives of ordinary people around the world. These changes are sometimes incredibly large such as the eradication of Poliomyelitis from the face of this earth to smaller projects which are locally focused within our communities enabling us to leverage the full benefits of our membership of Rotary International. Rotary is defined not by who we are but rather by the work we do and the potential that Rotary gives us.
