Pres Steven

It is a great honour for me to be again taking on the role of President for the Rotary year 2022/23. Being a Club based in Belfast city centre enables us to connect with the local Community, through service with YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance and we also support key efforts to end Homelessness. Worldwide we support the fight to ‘End Polio Now’ and help some of the world’s poorest people work their own way out of poverty with dignity by investment in small business via the Lendwithcare scheme in many countries including Ecuador, Malawi and Cambodia. 

We recognise the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Imagine, dream big and take action
and we hope that you will help us to expand our service.

Steven Costello, President 2022/23
