Like many organisations within our community, the Rotary Club of Ringwood has been eager to assist communities that have been affected by the recent bushfires.
The club’s fundraising efforts at the intersection of Maroondah Highway and Mount Dandenong Road last Saturday raised $10,250 which will solely be used to assist relief efforts.
The Rotary District of 9810, which covers the eastern and southeastern parts of Melbourne (which includes Ringwood) has formed a Disaster Relief Committee to coordinate Rotary’s activities and develop further fundraising efforts.
Tonight’s meeting included two guests from the Rotary Club of Wandin who spoke about the importance of networking with businesses and other community groups to strengthen community fundraising. The Rotary Club of Wandin has continually exceeded its fundraising targets through involving other organisations and informing the community about its projects.
The advice from these speakers will assist the Rotary Club of Ringwood in supporting major community projects through strengthening its approach to fundraising.
