About us

About us

We are people of action. Here in Dunfermline and around the world, people have been fed, clothed, housed, educated, immunised, treated, comforted, rescued or given clean water with help from Carnegie Dunfermline Rotary Club.

Stuff we do helps to improve people’s lives from right here in Dunfermline to the war-ravaged towns of Ukraine and the remote villages of Africa. For example, we’re part of the global End Polio Now campaign. In the process we meet new friends, make useful contacts - and have a lot of fun!

If that sounds like something you’d like to get involved in, who not join us? We’re a small, friendly club of people of action, and we welcome new members over the age of 18 from every background.

We’re always raising money in various (mostly fun!) ways which we pass on to well run local, national and international charities doing the things mentioned above. Among the most fun ones are a curry-and-quiz night at a local restaurant, and a 'noody dook' (skinny dip) at a nearby beach!

We also give our time and skills for the same purposes. Examples are pulling on our wellies to help develop and maintain a local community garden, and clearing polluting nurdles and other litter from local beaches, parks and streets. We pitch in and lend a hand to other organisations’ efforts, an example being the Lyne Burn Restoration Project.

We help to develop young, local talent, with Young Writer, Musician, Photographer, Artist and Environmentalist competitions, as well as a primary schools’ quiz competition.

Come and meet us

Why not come along to some of our meetings and events to find out more and get a feel for whether Rotary membership might be for you? 

We meet once a week for an hour to 90 minutes on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm. See the panel at the right for the venue detailsAnd once a month we meet socially or to work on one of our projects.

At our meetings we plan events, discuss club business, and eat cake. About once a month we enjoy a visiting speaker. The speakers are invariably inspirational people of action who also work to improve the lives of people in need and make the world a better place.

When there’s a fifth Tuesday in the month we might go out for a meal, go for a walk, or hold some other social event.

The organisational stuff

The Rotary Club of Carnegie Dunfermline (to give it its posh name just once) is a member of the worldwide family of Rotary service clubs. Chartered in 2003, we’re one of five Rotary clubs in West Fife, and more than 80 in Rotary District 1010, which covers North Scotland. District 1010 is in turn part of Rotary Great Britain & Ireland (RGBI), which is part of Rotary International.

Finally, did we mention that we welcome new members? Interested? Then you’ll probably want to know what it costs:

·       In cash, it’s £14.50 a month membership subscription; and

·       In time, it’s whatever you can give – every contribution is valued, however small!
