The Club was born of South Shields, Jarrow and Whitley Bay Rotary Clubs in 1988, It was chartered in February 1989. The early officers were mainly ex-Round Tablers which has resulted in the club’s pleasantly relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Of the Club activities, fundraising activities raise in excess of £10,000 p.a. with the two major events being a “Guy Fawkes Fireworks Extravaganza” around November 5th. and a “Santas Sleigh Ride” in mid December.
Our Club also supply personalised Rotary name badges to clubs and individuals throughout the U.K..
