Rotary's work in York

logo for facebook - CROPPED.png

Friends of York Rotary are people interested in keeping in touch and assisting the work of Rotary but who are unable to commit to full membership.


By keeping in touch with us, they can become involved, working alongside York Rotary members within the local community by volunteering on projects and activities; it's fun, and there is no regular commitment!

"Friends" can join either as an individual or as a representative of a local charity, business or other organisation.  


There are no membership fees.

The Patron of Friends of York Rotary (FoYR) is BBC Radio York's well-known Elly Fiorentini.  


Elly is an Honorary Member and great supporter of York Rotary. She is also well-known for providing the commentary every year at our major fundraising event, the York Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge.
