The Rotary Club of Hall is constantly working on assisting community service organisations in our community.
This week the club presented a President of Springfield Rural Fire Service, Rebecca Morrision and Captain Rod Tarlinton, with a cheque for $5,000 to be put toward upgrading equipment and facilities.
President of the Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation, Shiela Waterman, received a cheque for $2,000, to assist with their ongoing fight against the disease.
The club also made a donation to Nancy Tingey to assist with the publication of a book ‘Painting with Parkinsons’. Nancy has just returned from overseas where she and her family farewelled her husband who recently died of the disease. A number of our club members attended the funeral.
We have also made a smaller donation to Abbas Hussaini, an Afghan refugee, to assist with his rehabilitation into the Australian community.
