The Great Get Together

Great Get Together Logo


Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland is, once more, part of The Great Get Together, 22nd to 24th June 2018.

Last year’s Great Get Together marked the one year anniversary of Jo Cox’s murder. Jo was the Labour MP for Batley and Spen and was murdered by Thomas Mair as the mother of two arrived at her surgery. This year, events are taking place over her birthday weekend, the 22nd to 24th of June.

Jo firmly believed that we had more in common than that which divides us. Rotary shares this view and in all our activities we endeavour to involve people, to tackle social isolation and solve the problems caused by loneliness in our society. The Great Get Together is one way to achieve this

What are we doing?

Rotary clubs and districts are invited to put on the kettle, or something bigger, and bring people together for friendship. These events can be any size and any type. A  street party with hundreds of people, a quiet barbecue with a neighbour or even a cup of tea with a friend. Once your idea is created, it would really help if you would tell the Great Get Together by signing up on the Great Get Together website.

First things first:

1. Talk with your clubs and decide if you would like to take part.
2. Sign up here on the Great Get Together website.
3. Inform your district community and district PR officers who can then tell the rest of your district and the Rotary Support Centre.
4. Create your event and register it on The Great Get Together.
5. Have a great time!

Help Rotary to help communities by supporting The Great Get Together and remind our communities that we are stronger together.
