ROTARY clubs from across Worcestershire got together on Saturday to show city folk what they are all about.
Clubs from all over the county set up shop in the Guildhall in Worcester's High Street for a Festival of Rotary.
Stalls filled the Guildhall's ground floor, with more attractions set up in the courtyard outside.
The event showcased all the good work the voluntary group does, from supporting local community causes to major international projects.
These include the campaign to rid the world of the crippling disease polio, and its Shelterbox scheme, which provides well-equipped survival packages to be shipped to places afflicted by natural disasters such as earthquakes.
The event was opened by Worcester mayor Pat Agar, and there was plenty to do for all the family, including tombolas and fund-raising raffles.
Sue Fitzjohn of Rotary said: "We've had a really good turnout. As soon as we opened the doors at 10am, we had loads of people in."
