We have all seen the disastrous fires that have erupted, taking lives as well as destroying hundreds of homes and properties across Australia.
Rotary is once again taking the lead and looking to provide support for families in need. To this end several Rotary Districts and Clubs have established projects which are ready and able to accept donations from you. All of those projects can apply for funds from this appeal.
In 2020 the Rotary Club of Oakleigh Clayton Huntingdale has donated $5000 to the East Gippsland Bushfire Appeal
In 2020 the Rotary Club of Oakleigh Clayton Huntingdale has donated $4000 for drought relief in Mildura
The last Charity Garden Auction was held at the Village Green Hotel on 12th September 2019 and was a great success. The ninety nine participants who registered for the night competed vigorously for the extensive list of auction items and joined into the spirit of the additional silent auction and raffle. All had a good time.
Look out for the date of our 2021 Event.
