Rotary raises $22.6K
THE Rotary Club of Childers has ended the financial year on a high note, having raised $22,625.
Outgoing president Gary Walters thanked the community for their generosity and support throughout the year.
“Our local people contribute to those funds in one way or another. Their contribution to our club is so important,” he said.
“We gave away every cent we made for the year.”
More than 20 local and national organisations and essential services have benefited from the donations, including Lifeline, CareFlight, the Salvation Army and more.
MrWalters said the club, which currently has 24 members, was always on the lookout for newcomers who were interested in being involved in fundraising.
“If people are community-minded and want to help people, by all means Rotary is the place for them,” he said.
John Cole has taken up the reins as club president for this financial year.
