Rotary supports many charities worldwide. In 2019, the 3 headline charities supported by the St Albans clubs are:


Alzheimer's Research UK Alzheimer's Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, uniting the big thinkers in the field and funding the innovative science that will deliver a cure. Our mission is to bring about the first life-changing dementia treatment by 2025.


SECONDARY1ST SECONDARY1ST We want to put secondary breast cancer first. Front of mind. Top of the list. This is a disease that has spread to the rest of the body. It affects men and women everywhere. Secondary1st raises awareness and funds vital research that is seeking a cure for secondary breast cancer. Finding a cure means a diagnosis is no longer the end. It means people will have more days doing what matters most. It means daughters, mothers, fathers and sons get to keep on living a life they love.


The Counselling Foundation The Counselling Foundation We have provided counselling and counselling training for the better mental health of our communities in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire for over forty years. We enable people on low incomes to have access to affordable, long term counselling, which is not widely available elsewhere in the two counties.
