Jonathan, our long distance swimmer and computer systems manager says, "As a 43 year old, and having been a member of Rotary International for 5 years, I wish I'd joined sooner! Genuine local friendships, for both my wife and I, have made not being a member of the Rotary Club of Wakefield unthinkable.

Greater confidence in business; whether it be in meetings, business meals, conferences, presentations or speeches, plus greater self-awareness have all been worthy assets picked up along the way.

Most importantly, by working with our 1.2 million fellow members world-wide Rotary International achieves humanitarian work that money simply can't buy; World Wide Polio Immunisation being a great example.

I take great comfort in knowing that the relatively small amount of time I give to Rotary International reaps such wide reaching and huge rewards."

Membership costs £100 per year and our excellent meals - three courses and coffee - cost £15.

Do you have a management role or are you a professional with management responsibilities? Are you recently retired and held such a position before retirement? Are you a community leader? Do you have an interest in charitable work? Would you like to attend one of our meetings as our guest to meet some of our members?

If your answer to these any of these questions is "Yes", the Rotary Club of Wakefield is waiting to hear from you.
