Christmas Bags for the Elderly

Christmas 2016 has seen the twelth year in which the Rotary Club of Keilor has supported the local Royal District Nursing Service (RDNS) in bringing some festive cheer to that service’s most housebound, restricted and isolated clients.

The project involved the provision of 100 Shopping bags into which we had packed Christmas goodies including Christmas cake/plum puddings, small food items, personal hygiene, grooming and household products.
 
The appreciation received from this project begins when the bags are delivered to the RDNS and we witness the anticipation with which the Nurses look forward to bringing Christmas joy to their patients through the efforts of our Club.  A small number of the bags were placed directly with, and received similar appreciation, from, some needy recipients of whom Club members were personally aware.
 
In undertaking this project, the Club had great support from a number of businesses.  We are indebted to them for that support and they can be well pleased at the joy evidenced on the faces of recipients of the bags at what, for many, can be a very lonely time.Again this year the Rotary Club of Keilor collected donation from local business and Rotary members in the  Keilor and Niddrie areas to make up Christmas hamper bags for the lonely, isoleted members of the local community. The Christams Bags were delivered by Royal District Nurses to clients they had identified.

Key Project Supported by Keilor Rotary Club Car Show (prevention of dangerous driving)

Project: 

                   

The Rotary Club of Keilor is held its 10th annual  Car & Vintage Bike Show on Sunday the 1st  May 2016   in the grounds of the historic Keilor Hotel
 As always, all profits from the Car Show will be directed towards Rotary projects.  The principal beneficiary this year will be a pre-sentence program focused on preventing alcohol and risk related trauma among young people - particularly arising from dangerous and hoon driving (run in conjunction with the Sunshine Magistrate’s Court, Victoria Police and the Royal Melbourne Hospital Trauma Service).  Each program involves 30 young road offenders in a confronting three part counselling and face to face experience regime (including with victims and families of serious motor vehicle accidents) before returning to Court to present their individual program experiences, and its impacts on them, prior to sentencing.   Evidence of the success of the program is that just 9% of its participants are seen in Court again within one year.The program is run by The Youth Junction Incorporated (a not for profit which manages the Visy Cares Hub in Sunshine and which consolidates youth services in the complex youth demographic that makes up the Western Region of Melbourne).  On Tuesday 21 June (6pm for 6.30pm to 8pm) our Club will be meeting at The Visy Cares Hub at 70B Harvester Rd, Sunshine to hear about the pre-sentence intervention program and to present a cheque for $5000 from Car Show profits to help fund the program for the next year.
