Rotary Club donates $6000

IT provides a vital service to many Southern Downs residents, and the Rotary Club of Warwick wanted to do its bit to support it.

President Bryan Stephens donated $6000 for Wesley Rotary Lodge to Wesley Hospital fundraising development manager Ray Crompton.

Mr Stephens said the majority of the money was raised at the Roll the Dice Run this year and the money allowed the service club to sponsor a room for three years.

“It is a facility that a lot of Warwick people utilise when they go in for procedures in Brisbane,” Mr Stephens said.

“It’s a worthy cause.”

Wesley Rotary Lodge came into being about 20 years ago after a generous donation to the hospital, and provides convenient and flexible accommodation for country visitors. With the $35,000 raised from the Roll the Dice Run, the club will also donate $8000 to the Variety Club for a liberty swing, and will make other significant donations to The Oaks aged-care facility.

“We are there to help people who need assistance,” Mr Stephens said.

“That is what service clubs are all about.”
