Holloway Hostel Aged Care Community Hub Update

Following the Holloway House AGM the Community House was officially declared open on Sunday19th November by Keilor Rotarian Mr John Dean. John thanked all the sponsors of the project and the many keilor Rotarians who contributed their labour during the project.

The Rotary Club of Keilor has had a long association with the Holloway Hostel Aged Care Facility and helped with the construction of the Aged Care Facility many years ago.   It’s a pleasure to help them again with their latest venture, “The Community Hub”.
The concept is to have a building that that can be used in a similar way to Men’s-Shed by special interest groups within our community, to use and share with like-minded residents.   It will be available to small community groups who will be joined by residents with similar interests to allow them to socialise with the wider community while being in the safe easy to reach environment.
The Rotary Club of Keilor has taken the lead on this project using the skills of many of our members and their business, to provide significant building works, to fire proof the building, significant plumbing works, painting and concreting of a pathway. All of these tasks required detailed project management and negotiation skills. Thanks to the donation by club members providing free of charge building materials and significant donations of time the project is nearing completion. The project has been funded with the assistance of a Federal Government Grant and fundraising by the Rotary Clubs of Keilor and Keilor East

Story about the Key Project Supported by Keilor Rotary Club 2017 Car Show (prevention of dangerous driving)

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.
