The year started well with Bunnings barbeques at Mile End raising the majority of the money required to support our projects. We were close to achieving budget, however, due to COVID 19 restrictions which resulted in the cessation of barbeques, we will not meet our target. We were very grateful to receive the generous $500 gift voucher from Bunnings which will be used for the Catherine House garden project.

Christmas tree sales were very successful at Bunnings, Kent Town, making slightly over our budget amount. The supplier was able to provide us with high quality trees again this year.

Both of these major fund raisers were very well supported by our members who worked at times in uncomfortable weather conditions, for which we are grateful. We were also grateful for the Rotaractors' help with the Christmas tree sales.

The Superloop Adelaide 500 carparking fund raiser made a little less this year due to street parking being opened up to the public.

Our minor fund raisers such as bottle and can recycling, Christmas cakes and puddings sales, and Entertainment book sales were successful.

The money raised has been allocated to all of our projects and we have been able to provide donations to assist with bush fire recovery.
