Making a difference... you can too
If you give people the opportunity they can achieve outstanding things. 
 
It's this simple philosophy that inspires a lot of the work Applecross Rotary does, locally and further afield. 
 
Our members come from all walks of life - we're engineers, lawyers, marketeers, scientists, educators, farmers and retailers, the list goes on - and we range in age from our early 20s through to mid 80s. The commonality we share is an interest in using our time, skills and energy to improve the lives of others . And we like to have fun while we do it!
 
Our projects are equally varied. From our much-loved Rotary Jacaranda Festival, the Pride of Workmanship Awards, a local Art Show and Sale, numerous youth initiatives as well as supporting indigenous, mental health and women's refuge projects and delivering major health and water based projects that will save lives.... we're an ambitious club with the power to get things done.

For several years now, we have partnered with WA charity Street Connect, to buy sleeping bags for homeless people in WA. Last year over 80 sleeping bags were donated, and many ended up in Mandurah and Bunbury where there was high demand.
 
“Stitches of Hope” is a registered charity that was established by Swan Rotarians Kay and John Eva. It is based in Cambodia and the sleeping bags are made in a local village, and pay a living wage to the workers. Kay and John get them delivered to WA where they can be purchased for $50, and donated to Street Connect. So your tax-deductible donation through RAWCS sends money to Cambodia for village development, and keeps homeless people warm in WA. Pretty good deal!
 
We launched the 2022 Appeal a few weeks, and sold 36 sleeping bags. Great start - well done!
 
Please chat to Ian Fairnie if you’d like to participate.
