Dot Lamb has been a volunteer with Communicare all her married life.  Dot was awarded a Rotary Service Award from President Norman for 55 years of volunteering for Communicare. Communicare is a not-for-profit association which has been serving the seniors, lonely and disabled within Auckland.

Communicare was started by four women to care for people with disabilities.  They now run 21 Friendship Centres in Central, East, West and South Auckland serving more than 500 members weekly with the assistance of over 250 volunteers and a small team of part-time staff.  Each Centre is open one day a week during school term time from 9.30am to 1.00pm.  Morning tea and a light lunch is served and there is a small daily cost which contributes towards this.
 
Centres offer a variety of activities such as handcraft, exercises, and board games.  Communicare is very grateful for grants received from generous sponsors.  Adrian from New World contributes Vouchers to the Remuera Communicare Centre which meets at St. Marks Church Hall, on Tuesdays. 
 
If you know of anyone who would benefit from attending Communicare sessions, please encourage them to come along to St. Mark's.
 
Communicare depends on Volunteer helpers to operate their Centres.  If you, or someone else you know of, has some time to help others enjoy life, please get in touch by phoning 631- 5968.  Their website is www. communicare.co.nz.  Communicare is a treasure of care, comfort and joy for people.
 
Visually Impaired Person Camp – each year the club brings together visually impaired youngsters supported by the Blind Foundation with a group of senior students from Diocesan, Kings and Dilworth, for a mutually beneficial & stimulating weekend of outdoor activity. Unfortunately, because of severe weather, the 2017 camp had to be cancelled.  Photos from 2015
 
In November 2013, 24 Club members spent an evening packing Emergency Response Kits for the national Rotary New Zealand Project.  Kits contain basic equipment to assist a family construct a simple shelter and clothe themselves.  Tools, toiletreis, first aid supplies and household items are in each kit to assist families in the South Pacific who have lost everything through a cyclone or other disaster.
 
It was a fun time packing these kits and those of you who have not had the opportunity to partake in this activity are encouraged to consider volunteering for this activity in the future.
The Club has had a long association with Tamaki Primary School, supporting the Books in Homes pogramme - with the partnership beginning in 1999. "Thank you for the beautiful book you gave me. I love this lovely new book and have really enjoyed it. I had never read this book before. Thank you Remuera Rotary for my Duffy Book.”
