Last weekend saw a small group of stalwart Sunrisers and Sundowners brave the cold to spend a few hours sorting items at St Vincent's warehouse in Mitchell.  Those involved learned of the huge stockpiles of clothing, furniture, cosmetics and all sorts of other items that come through the warehouse that are either on-sold or provided free of charge to clients in difficult circumstances.  It was time well spent, and great to able to provide hands on assistance to a an organisation providing a helping hand in our local community.
 
 
The annual Trivia Night fundraiser event was held on 1st June.  Once again the event was a great night of fun and trivia.  Over $12,500 was raised for DreamCricket on the night.
The year has got off to a busy start for the Rotary Club of Canberra Sunrise.  Over the next 6 weeks we are running DreamCricket Clinics at local schools, running a BBQ in support of the Epilespy ACT Annual Walk and running a couple of fund raising BBQs - including one on ANZAC Day at Bunnings Belconnen.  Planning committees are also busy preparing for our annual Trivia Fundraiser (1 June), our Model United Nations Assembly debating weekend (August) and a DreamCricket Gala Day (October).  It is great to be so busy supporting our local community, and also great to have such a committed group of volunteers to make these events all happen.
 
If you are keen to give back to the community and support some of these events, please contact us and come along to a Club meeting to check us out.  No pressure.  No obligation.
