It is an integral part of Rotary International, the world's first service organisation. Each member enjoys business as well as social networking opportunities, whilst giving something back to those less fortunate, learning new skills and having a huge amount of fun!Rotary runs countless humanitarian projects both locally, nationally and internationally, and also partners with many charities worldwide.

Rotary clubs determine service projects based on local needs.They work for and with young people to address challenges facing the youth of today. Interact and Rotaractare also part of the Rotary family, with a similar club structure specifically for young people aged 14-18 and 18-30 respectively.

Since Rotary became involved in polio eradication in 1985, the number of reported polio cases has fallen from 350,000 a year to just 10! 125 endemic countries have been reduced to just 2 - Afghanistan and Pakistan; and over two billion children have been protected from the disease. We are so close to seeing it eraticated in our lifetime.

All proceeds from this event go to our Rotary Charity for distribution to local Charities & Voluntary Organisations
The Dundee Club has a very active membership with around 90 Rotarians and we have been serving the local community for nearly 100 years which is something that we are all justifiably proud of. This our eighth Oktoberfest promises to build on the success of the earlier years when we raised in the region of £86,000. ALL of which has been used selectively in support of worthwhile local community projects. Rotarians give of their time and expertise absolutely free.Our membership represents our community with the main requirement for a Rotarian being enthusiasim and a willingness to help others, perhaps less fortunate than him or herself. There is a video below which probably explains just what it is all about - see what you think.We’re always looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join our Club, to use their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people in their local communities and others around the world.And, in the process, you can enjoy the benefits of business networking, personal development, meeting new friends, hearing inspiring speakers, having a great deal of fun and experiencing that special sense of fulfillment that comes from achieving something really worthwhile. Interested... a quick Email to:firstname.lastname@example.org will do fine. We look forward to hearing from you.
