Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Dumfries Devorgilla. Please note that presently our meetings are held by Zoom fortnightly.

Dragon Boats

We have organised Dragon Boats Festivals on River Nith, Dumfries in partnership with Dumfries Multi Cultural Society. All proceeds were provided to local good causes.


Solway Sportive

A partnership event with Dalbeattie Community Initiative. 2020 is unfortunately cancelled. 2019 had 100 riders on three routes around Dumfries and Galloway including a 100mile route! The event raised £1600 for local charities. www.solwaysportive.co.uk


Bollywood Night

We have completed a Charity Bollywood Night to raise money for Katha Lab school in New Delhi.



An amazing £84,000 has been raised for local health causes over 9 successful years of the Run4Health. A partnership project with the NHS and Dumfries and Galloway Council as a truly family fun event.


Fireworks Display

The Rotary Club of Dumfries Devorgilla have organised a free public fireworks display for Dumfries in partnership with the People’s Project on the Mill Green. We received a bronze medal from Cash for Kids for donations raised in 2017!


Santa's Grotto

Visit Santa at his grotto during December held at Gardenwise Plant and Garden Centre, Dumfries. This is an annual event in partnership with Gardenwise. All proceeds go to local good causes with an amazing £18,000 raised to date.


About us

We are an active and young Club formed in 2002 and serving Dumfries and and it's immediate environs with a succesful record of fundraising and community events including Santas Grotto, Solway Sportive and Run4Health. More information on our events can be found on:



Our meetings are held weekly in the evenings on a Monday night at the Edenbank Hotel, Dumfries and involve a range of club visits, interesting speakers and good fellowship. Check our calender for forthcoming meetings.

Service to the community requires our Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects. This often involves fundraising to provide charities with financial support but this is not our Clubs first aim. Our emphasis is on personal service.

Recent club news:  Devorgilla will be hosting a pop up shop in the Loreburn Centre in November. Look out for more information soon.
