Peel Aquajets Say Thank You

Peel Aquajets say thank you to Rotary for the Wishing Well funding.

The Peel Aquatic Club Aquajets squad gives specialised free coaching to swimmers with special needs between the ages of 7 and 12. 

The Rotary Club of Mandurah Wishing Well funded equipment loans and fee subsidy for swimmers who might otherwise be excluded from participating in a mainstream swimming club. 

Welcome Shilo!

Riding for the Disabled welcomes Shilo to the stable. One little pony has been busy recently after he was bought by the Riding for the Disabled Association with funds donated by the Rotary Club of Mandurah.
Shilo was purchased thanks to a $3000 donation made possible by funds raised from the Rotary Wishing Well during last year’s festive season.
RDA President Belinda Brown thanked the Rotary Club for the donation with the club always looking for more horses or ponies.
"The only way we get horses from donations, grants or if they are given to us", she said.
"Shilo is the perfect RDA pony; he’s great with kids."
RDA is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation which provides opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe and therapeutic horse-related activities.

Another Workshop For Birthing Kits

Thanks to the Wishing Well grant from the Rotary Club of Mandurah to fund the cost of 600 birthing kits, the Zonta Club of Peel was able to hold a second workshop this year. The workshop was held at Comet Bay Bowling Club in Singleton, with 20 Zonta members, friends, club members and Rotary member Martin Robinson.
The kits are sent to the Birthing Kit Foundation and then forwarded to one of the countries in the developing world which use them to help save the lives of mothers and babies.

Martin Robinson, Jenny Rees, Jenny Crake, Di Marsh and Nerida Jongen were among those at the recent workshop to assemble the birthing kits.
