Rotary Club Estoi Palace International
Club No. 80155
Registered on 2nd September, 2008
Chartered on 26th October, 2008

The Rotary movement expands across the world through new Rotary Clubs. To form a new Rotary Club is called to Charter a Club.

Our club was set up by three founder members and some past Rotarians who between them decided to charter a new International Rotary Club in Algarve.

The founders chose Estoi Palace as its base for a variety of reasons, including its convenient location and facilities.

The formal inauguration was held in October 2008 when we received the Charter Letter, presented by the Rotary District Governor, Teresa Mayer.

Projects Supported by RCEPI:

Every month, Rotary Club Estoi Palace International provides 500 litres of milk to Casa do Povo de Estoi, a public institution that helps disfavoured children and the elderly on this parish.

In addittion we are constantly organising many other projects and events to raise funds for different institutions or group of people.

For details of these and all our other activities, including information on guest speakers at our regular meetings, please visit our "Events Calendar" page.
