Ro­tary steps up

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

THEY say good things al­ways come in threes.

And that has turned out to be the case for three lo­cal groups who re­ceived a spe­cial do­na­tion from the Ro­tary Club of Kyabram at the hos­pi­tal on Mon­day.

Ro­tary past-pres­i­dent Gra­ham War­ren pre­sented cheques of $500 to mem­bers of the Kyabram RSL sub­branch and the St An­drews Church, as well as a cheque for $1000 to Kyabram and District Health Ser­vices act­ing CEO David Ed­wards.

St An­drews church Mon­day night com­mu­nity meal co­or­di­na­tor Patti Har­ri­son said she was grate­ful for the do­na­tion, which would help her group buy more food to feed in be­tween 40 and 60 peo­ple each week.

‘‘These might be peo­ple who are lonely, or lost their part­ners, or are sin­gle mums, and they come from 5.30 to 7 to en­joy a beau­ti­ful two-course meal that is served by vol­un­teers from the com­mu­nity,’’ Mrs Har­ri­son said.

Kyabram RSL sec­re­tary Eve­lyn Cun­ning­ham said their money will go to­wards help­ing ex-ser­vice­men or their wi­d­ows with things like power bills or car regis­tra­tion.

‘‘They’re nor­mally very hes­i­tant to take money, be­cause they feel it should go to some­one else – but that’s ex­actly what it’s for,’’ Mrs Cun­ning­ham said.

‘‘We’re re­ally thank­ful to Ro­tary for their sup­port, which has been on­go­ing,’’ Mr Ed­wards said.
