Excited, eager and having a great sense of pride – just a few of the ways to describe the amazing partnership between Wigan Rotary Club and a group of enthusiastic SJR students.

St John Rigby - The Interact Club (‘SJR TIC’) is the first Interact Club in Greater Manchester and the group is looking to establish its place in SJR and the wider community, forging links both locally and internationally.

‘Interact’, a programme set up and supported by Wigan Rotary Club, is a fantastic opportunity for young people to work as a collective to undertake at least two projects during the year – one with a focus on a local community issue and one that helps to promote international understanding.

It is a great opportunity for young people to develop their skills in teamwork, leadership and communication, as well as working to promote causes and give something back to the local and wider international community. The support provided by Wigan Rotary Club has been fantastic and the Interact Club continues to develop links with Rotary members, firstly within the Wigan area but also across the world.
