THE ROTARY CHARITY GOLF DAY A GREAT SUCCESS

 

The sun shone and the weather was perfect for our annual Rotary Charity Golf Day last Friday.  A full field of 36 teams took to the magnificently prepared Royal Fremantle Golf Course and recorded some excellent scores.

Rod Rate is to be congratulated for once again planning, organising and running a very popular and successful Rotary Charity Golf Day.

A small committee of people from Fremantle Rotary, Spinnaker and MND as well as Attadale Rotarians Bob Rodgers, Martin Houchin, Colin and Gail McCulloch worked with Rod to make sure every aspect of the day was well planned and carried out.

A big thank you to the willing band of helpers who ensured the day ran smoothly so that it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and a great success.

Update on the School of St Yared

The big news, of course, is that the Global Grant application has finally been signed off by all parties and has been submitted for approval. 

Congratulations and thanks to John and Mal for their absolutely massive effort in achieving this. 

Excerpt from the School of St Yared monthly newsletter:

 

 

 

 

The Rotary Charity House Concept

The Rotary Charity House is the brain child of Kerry Parsons and similar in concept to our original charity house built in the early 1980s that funded the establishment of the Neil Henley Foundation that has helped fund our charitable work for over thirty years.

The idea is that we will build a house and seek sponsors to donate or discount goods and/or services.  The more donations we receive the less it will cost us to build the house and the greater the profit will be when we sell the house.  These profits will go to RCA charities with a substantial amount to be allocated to the “Relocation, Refurbishment and Expansion of the School of St Yared” in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  We have been receiving extremely generous support from many individuals and companies, both large and small.  We are keen to thank all of our sponsors for their support by recognizing their contributions as widely as possible; using their services whenever possible, and recommending them to our friends and relations.

 

Please support our valued sponsors.
