Rotary Donations In Kind is one of Rotary’s largest and most successful projects. Each week it ships a container of quality recycled goods that organisations no longer require. This year’s target of 5,000 school desks and 2,000 chairs for Timor Leste is an example of two items for one country. The Rotary Club of Keilor receives excellent support from schools and Tullamarine Primary School's donation of over 100 desk and 200 chairs is a wonderful contribution. We now need to raise $3,000 to cover the transport cost. For more information www.rotarykeilor.org.au or contact David Dippie 0408 174773
Volunteers are “HOT” While their bodies may not be as buff as they used to be, the commitment is still as strong. While others were complaining about the 43 degree heat, this fine body of men from RC Keilor, Melbourne, Port Melbourne, West Footscray and Wyndham were loading a container for Timor Leste, the first one to be shipped in 2014. It’s full of new beds that will equip a new tourist facility on Atauro Island near Dili and supplement some orphanages bed needs in Timor Leste. Our target is year is to ship is to ship 52 container units, this makes 31..
Congratulations to our Charter member Jack Batchelor, awarded his Sapphire Paul Harris Fellow and his son Owen Batchelor, awarded a Paul Harris Fellow, for their continued contribution to the club through their printing business Aberdeen Press (now closed) over many many years. It was an effort to get these two Rotarians together at the same time, but some clever organising by several members made this event happen
