Carnforth Rotarians are enthusiastic, fun-loving and active volunteers who get together most weeks of the year for dinner, fellowship and professional networking. We have a varied programme of informative guest speakers and enjoy social events such as ladies nights, day trips to local attractions and theatre trips.


Our members give their time and talents to serve the local and international community, in order to help those less fortunate. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” which conveys the humanitarian spirit of over 1.2 million Rotarians throughout the world.


Rotary is a non-religious, non-political organisation that is one of the largest non-governmental providers of humanitarian, educational and cultural support programmes in the world. Rotarians encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help to build goodwill and peace.

Christmas Sleigh

The Rotary Club of Carnforth host their annual sleigh each year in the run up to Christmas to raise funds for local charities within the communities visited by the sleigh.

In 2015 over £7000 was raised and donated to worthwhile causes in and around Carnforth.

Father Christmas hands out tangerines to local children and brings some festive cheer to the local community. The sleigh will commence its run in each area at the times stated below. We look forward to greeting as many people as possible.

This is made possible by the generosity of Mitsubishi Norjak of Carnforth, who provide the Sleigh towing vehicle; George Speights of Lancaster, who provide the tangerines for the children; Carnforth Inner Wheel; Lancashire police cadets; Rotarian family and friends.
