Help out your Rotarians

WORKING hard to raise money to go back into the community, the Rotary Club of Woolgoolga are in desperate need of a vehicle.

A generous member of the public donated an immaculate golf buggy to the club to help them fundraise to purchase a second-hand vehicle to use for their Rotary auction pick-ups.

The club's major fundraiser for the year consists of a monthly monster auction with a variety of donated goods from the public.

"We do about 30 pick-ups a month and each time we go out we average about three or four hour session,” Rotary Club of Woolgoolga president Norm Michener said.

The club has come to the stage where it is struggling for available vehicles to hitch up their trailers.

The 2008 golf buggy was sold earlier this week at a bargain price of $3000, with funds going towards the purchase of another vehicle to help the club.

"We want to continue to make the monthly monster auction sustainable and in order to do that we need a vehicle.”

A crowd funding page has been set up through Givenow.

The club are also offering free first year membership for new members.

With an increasing average age, the club are looking to attract new members.

The club currently have 23 members and a third of them are women.
