Get Involved

We are very keen to have non-members assist in some of our projects. This is a great way to help the local community without any commitment to joining. If you then think Rotary is for you, come along to a few meetings to find out more.

You may wish to help at the local Food Bank or on the Ayrshire Coastal Path. Or work on our various Youth activites. Perhaps help run our Charity Golf Day or simply do some litter picking. And there are lots of other activities to get involved with. Read more>>

Or some people may wish to make a donation, which allows us to help others. Click the "Donate" button - you do not need a Paypal account, simply use your debit or credit card.

New Environment Committee

Ayr Rotary have formed an Environment Committee following Rotary International's approval of a "new area of focus" .

Under the leadership of Alasdair Meldrum, the committee have already several projects lined up, more details shortly.

At our regular meeting on 27 April, two leading environmentalists helped explain what Rotary can do to help - it is up to us all to do whatever we can to make our contribution to addressing the massive environmental threats to our world. Specifically regarding litter and waste there are three key areas:

  • Enforcement
  • Education
  • Infrastructure.

Ayr Rotary stretched across the pond last week, to hold a a joint meeting with New Paltz Rotary, which lies 80 miles north of New York. Using Zoom, both clubs learned a great deal about how the other operates, particularly on project work. This opportunity arose with our new member Julie Bain setting it up, as she used to be a menber if New Paltz. https://rotaryclubofayr.org/new-paltz-rotary-club-usa/ #rotary
