Club members work together to organise events and projects to raise funds for worthy charitable causes.

Rotary International Foundation Co-Ordinator, Peter Moralee, is pictured presenting a certificate, congratulating the Leicester Club, to President Richard Power in recognition of our support of the Rotary’s Worldwide Polio Eradication programme.
