About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Allander which is the local Rotary Club for the Bearsden and Milngavie areas on the north side of Glasgow.

The club was formed in 1970 and has developed strong links with the local community eg Milngavie Youth Centre,Friendship Circle and with local schools. The recently developed Clyde Coastal Path (http://www.focrt.org/ccp)  provides a route between the Ayrshire Coastal Path and the West Highland Way. Our annual Duck Race and Sportsman's Dinner raise funds for the Children's Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS), Kidney Kids Scotland, Milngavie Youth Centre and other local charities. Over the years we have raised over £300,000. We also raise funds for Shelter Boxes and Water Boxes which contain tents and other equipment to purify drinking water and help survival in those parts of the world where a natural disaster has struck.

Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago by Paul Harris and in 2012 celebrated its centenary in Scotland. Rotary International now has 33,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographical areas with a membership of 1.2 million. When working together it can produce wonderful life changing results as shown by the fight against polio.

Polio is a virus which can cause paralysis and death. In 1985 there were 325,000 cases in 125 countries. Rotary raised $250m dollars, matched by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to fund an immunisation programme. Polio remains in only 4 countries: Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Nigeria. A new target to complete the task was set for Rotary: $200m matched by a $350m matching Challenge Grant from the Bill and Melinda Gate's Foundation. It is reckoned by the time Polio has been eradicated, in terms of money, expertise, equipment and volunteers, Rotary International will have contributed close on $2billion.

Rotary provides an opportunity to make a difference: locally, nationally and internationally.

Rotary is based on fellowship and fun. In addition to our various Rotary service projects, we have a very active social and sports programme.

Allander Rotary Club is keen to hear from men and women in the local community who wish to know more about the activities of the Rotary organisation and the Allander club in particular.
