The Rotary Club of Goolwa has provided the Goolwa Uniting Church a new 90cm Stove and Range Hood to allow them to better provide community lunches for disadvantaged residents.
In the past this has been attended by up to 60 people a week, providing great benefit to the attendees.
 
Rotary Club members volunteer regularly, the Club also provides funds for food supplies when called on.
 
The Uniting Church also runs a men’s breakfast on Wednesday mornings, a monthly luncheon for women at work and has just commenced a youth study program on Wednesday evenings, with food provided for the attendees.
 
Through our fundraising efforts the Rotary Club of Goolwa are pleased to be able to assist our community in outcomes such as this.
 
 
Duncan Norris, Wendy Lippett and Noeline Biermann on behalf of the Rotary Club of Goolwa recently handed over 4 Backpack Beds, for those sleeping rough and 10 Sleeping Bags, for those couch surfing, to Mary Mcinnes of Whalers Peninsula Community Housing for use in the Fleurieu. The Australian designed Backpack Beds have won 7 International awards for design and with the onset of winter not only are lightweight and comfortable but assist greatly in improving both health and dignity of the recipient. 
Demand for the Backpack Beds is so strong that orders are currently limited to the 4 purchased by the club.

SA Bushfire - Donations
Hay to Kangaroo Island
With more than a half of Kangaroo Island affected by bushfires, the Goolwa  community has rallied and raised thousands of dollars for their friends across Backstairs Passage.
The Rotary Club of Goolwa collected and distributed more than $8500 in donations from Goolwa residents and visitors who generously supported SA fire victims. As well as money, a load of 40 toys, for children of all ages were delivered on Christmas eve to Brukunga in the Adelaide Hills, where a lot of property, and houses were lost.
Also, $4000 secured a load of hay to go to KI, which was delivered on February 1. The carrier, John Harkness, provided free transport for the hay to feed the animals and surviving livestock on the island,
 
 
From the Ashes there is recovery. Our Rural community in South Australia still needs help. Rotary District 9510 have established the South Australia Bushfire Relief Fund through the Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (Managed by RAWCS)
To provide relief for those affected by the South Australian bushfires.

Rotary Goolwa Donates $30,000 to fitout of Goolwa SLSC

 

The Rotary Club of Goolwa has donated $30,000 to fit out the new Goolwa Surf Lifesaving Club's medical room, ensuring it will be ready to go for any emergencies when the club reopens later this year.

Goolwa Rotary President Noeline Biermann said the group had carried out a determined, four year long fundraising campaign to achieve their $30,000 goal of funding the fit out.

This latest donation marks an almost decade long relationship between the Rotary Club of Goolwa and the Goolwa SLSC.

Nine years ago, the Rotary Club bought the SLSC an IRB vessel named in honour of longtime Rotary member, the late Brian Hurrell.

They also worked alongside Lions to provide the club with a 4WD, among many other fundraisers which have contributed to a variety of causes, including the club's surf watch tower.

Goolwa SLSC President, David Reynolds said Rotary have been amazing long-time supporters of the Club.

"They've been fantastic and from day one, they've been on board and have donated a great deal of money," he said.

"As part of our first aid commitment to the community, the medical room facilities will be utilised not just by the surf club, but also by SA Ambulance as well being open for ongoing community first aid training.

"The club is so grateful for the help of Rotary which has been ongoing from a time even before Goolwa SLSC began to establish itself, they've been a backbone for the Club."
