The Rotary International Peace Award recognises an individual or organisation who has contributed to the furtherance of peace and understanding throughout peoples of the world.
The first Rotary Peace Award was awarded in 2016 to Llangollen
International Musical Eisteddfod and the Eisteddfod now provides
the platform for the presentation of the prize.
Rotary International is one of the largest humanitarian
organisations in the world and is made up of 1.23 million Rotarians
worldwide who work in their local, national and international
communities to help those in need.
District 1180 stretches from Mid Wales up to Lancashire and
includes all of North Wales, Wirral, Merseyside, parts of
Shropshire and Cheshire. Rotary clubs meet regularly in most towns
and are made up of men and women from 18 upwards from all
backgrounds regardless of race, colour or creed. The Rotary
motto is "Service Above Self".
Rotarians work as volunteers in many diverse areas which can be
anything from assisting young carers in the local community to have
some time to themselves, to providing humanitarian aid to countries
who have suffered a major disaster such as the Nepal earthquakes or
the floods in Cumbria and Lancashire.
