Lyn Davies, as the partner of PDG Graham Davies in his year as Governor, chose Hearing Loss as her 'partner's Project'.  This snowballed into enough funding to support a PhD student into research into.."Hearing loss and mental health" 
"Research has shown that hearing loss can be linked to mental health concerns including depression, anxiety and psychosis. Whilst we are aware of this connection, we don't know how mental health issues may impact the experience of hearing loss and how audiologists (hearing health clinicians) can provide better services for these clients. PhD Candidate, Emma Laird, will present the results from her research that was kindly funded by the Rotary Club of Terrigal and Australian Rotary Health. She will discuss how this research has already promoted change in the audiology clinic and within the teaching of audiology students."

Our Christmas Party was great.
Thank you to everyone to came to enjoy, but also to give.. We collected $725 to send to School for Life Uganda towards building their new boarding house.
A wonderful concert by Symphony Central Coast on Sunday, (Terrigal Rotary are one of SCC sponsors).  The concert commenced with the beautiful music of Bernstein only to be followed by a superb performance of Ravel Piano Concerto in G by soloist Gareth Szakos – amazingly talented, Gareth made his debut with the SCC at age 8.  I am sure Gareth is destined for great things.  The finale brought us the beautiful voices of 5 singers from Palm Tree Studios who serenaded us with classic, swing and jazz.  A fantastic evening after which we congregated around food and drinks and privileged to meet the artists.  The work and effort David Mylan and the Rotary Club of Terrigal have contributed to promoting and sponsoring SCC was acknowledge by a special presentation to
Inaugural Dinner: 
On Thursday 21 November 2019 an inaugural dinner was held that demonstrated Rotary’s commitment to stop domestic violence on the Central Coast and raise awareness of the service providers who support the victims of family and domestic violence.  After months of planning the Terrigal Rotary organizing team hosted eighty guests including four guest speakers and a musician.  The event achieved our goal of engaging the community in a conversation and sharing information about family and domestic violence. 
The professional and helpful staff of Breakers Country Club who did everything that was requested.  The function room was thoughtfully set up by Breakers staff and the event organizing team.  Many comments were received that the room looked beautiful and welcoming.

Last weekend, 25th October, Jill went on a visit to Lightning Ridge with Gosford North and Erina Clubs. The trip was to hand over money raised by all the Central Coast Rotary Clubs to help support the farmers in this heavily drought ridden area of New South Wales.
On the tourist trail especially for the gem opals, the town has good restaurants and cafes, motels and camp sites, a large supermarket, and four churches. Opal miners live either in the town, or on their 'leases', just out of town,  in anything from corrugated iron humpies, to stone built castles, and everything in between.  Farms surround the town, currently in this drought with large paddocks acting as dust bowls, ploughed fields waiting for rain, or a small number of cattle, surviving on donated hay.  It must be a very different sight when rain is more regular.
While Gosford North Rotary itself has raised a separate, significant amount of money from their 'wheel' activity at Erina shopping centre, as well as BBQs for the Council, and bucket rattling, we were all able to give money to the Rotary Club there.  The Lightning Ridge Rotary Club fund and arrange, from local businesses, hampers for farming families, especially over Christmas. Hampers such as donated cakes and biscuits, jams and pickles, toiletries and household goods etc.  They also arrange with the local pharmacy, to subsidise essential prescriptions for struggling families.  The Club also supports students from the High School in their efforts to raise money to travel abroad, next year to Nepal.

Rotary Clubs of the Central Coast have donated money to help the development of the International Womens Day events over the past few years.
The money not taken up,  has been offered as matching grants, to social organisations of all types across the area. the results can be found below.
With grateful thanks to the combined Rotary Clubs, we look forward to seeing the impact of all these worthwhile projects.

The Rotary Club of Terrigal members collected over $900 for this appeal last weekend.
As usual "Koby" was a great attraction. Thanks to everyone who gave up their time for this great cause.


One of our wonderful Year 10 students, Holly Ayres, has now returned from her Rotary exchange trip to South Africa.  This was arranged though Terrigal Rotary Club and we thank all at the club for their continued support of our students.


Holly and her family hosted a South African student, Louise, for 5 weeks over the Christmas period and she was able to attend some classes here at Terrigal High and see lots of the sites that the Central Coast and Sydney have to offer thanks to Holly's family and Terrigal Rotary members.


Holly was in South Africa for 5 weeks at the start of this term, and attended Somerset College, near Cape Town for 2 of those weeks. Holly thoroughly enjoyed her time at the school and she was made to feel very welcome and attended Louise's classes.  She also visited Addo Elephant Park, Table Mountain, a local primary school and pre-school, a cheetah sanctuary and some of the beautiful beaches and local nature reserves whilst in South Africa. Louise's family and some Cape Town Rotary members ensured Holly thoroughly enjoyed her time and we are grateful to them.
