About Us

RotarySR1 is a new concept in Sunderland, bringing together dynamic and forward thinking people to give back to the local community.
Rotary SR1 has developed from the Rotary Club of Seaburn Satellite Group.

The thinking behind the new Rotary club is to help local people who are time poor to get together when it suits them during business hours or in a bar after work. 

Andy Bradley, a Rotarian and Centre Director at the Bridges comments: “We all understand the pressures and personal time constraints of 21st century life, which is why the Rotary Satellite Group is the perfect opportunity for people like me to get involved and help give something back to the local community.”

The group aims to bring together dynamic and forward thinking people probably from their early twenties upwards to work together on opportunities that could make a difference in the local community.

Andy continues: “We are looking for people who are passionate about Sunderland. What could look better on your CV than charity and leadership roles in your own city, which in turn could raise essential funds for local community projects?”

Steven Martin, managing director of DC Services and fellow Rotarian, says: “We want to develop an eclectic Rotary Club which will fuse to create a sophisticated and dynamic team. The group will not only support the local community but also aspire to fund and deliver creative fresh water solutions in Africa and Asia.

The group plans to meet during the working day, with the occasional, but always interesting evening social activity. As part of the group, individuals will have the opportunity to propose, develop and take part in the planning of events which will open up the chance to interact with other businesses from across Sunderland and the Seaburn area.

Rotarian Simon Robertson, managing director of One Voice Productions Limited, concludes: “Joining the Seaburn Rotary Satellite Group has been a brilliant experience. We enjoy and look forward to working together as a team raising, on occasion, life changing funds but importantly having fun at the same time.

“Not only that, the club is a fantastic way of making new friends with people from across the city, building new relationships and enjoying the experience, friendship and fellowship of other like-minded individuals, who I may not have met otherwise.”
