Rotary’s Melbourne Cup Day sweep raises $800 for charity
THE Rotary Club of Childers Melbourne Cup sweep raised $800.
The funds will be used by the club and the Rotary Foundation to help support local projects.
This November is End Polio Now Month – October 24 was World Polio Day.
When Rotary launched the program in 1985 there were more than 150,000 polio cases in over 125 countries.
There has since been a 99% reduction in polio cases, or four million children who might have been polio victims.
Rotary president Graham Walker was pleased with the result and efforts shown by Rotary members during the Melbourne Cup sweep.
The winners of the sweep were:
1st place Craig Fredrickson. 2nd Place Joyce Bianco. 3rd Di Styles. The wooden spoon for last place went to Guy Cole.
The Rotary Club of Childers meets every Thursday at the Isis Club at 7pm
New members are encouraged to come along and join the club for a meal.
There are currently 22 Rotarians in the Rotary Club of Childers.
The club can be seen at many community events, fundraising to contribute to the local community with monetary or in-kind donations.
