Community Focus- Rotary club of Warwick Sunrise



Christmas is always a busy time of the year for our group and this year we are currently packing up 50 Christmas hampers for local farmers who continue to be drought affected.  At the same time we are running our big Christmas raffle selling tickets outside WFS in Palmerin Street as well as at IGA and the Cherry Tree Café. All funds raised go towards local projects such as supporting three Warwick teenagers to attend a leadership camp at Camp Bornhffen in the Numinbah valley.

Recently we supported the mental health workshop “Are you bogged mate” at Freestone Hall and donated $5000 worth of vouchers to be distributed to rural participants.

Together with the Warwick Men’s Shed we have built six little street libraries and the first two are now installed at Leslie Park and Mile End Park with four more to come in the new year. These are free to use and locals are encouraged to borrow books and drop off books for adults and children alike. Larger donations of books are accepted all year round for our Annual Big Book Sale and can be dropped off at B and K Motors in Albion Street.

The Rotary Club of Warwick Sunrise are celebrating 20 years of activities in the region and are proud to be “People of Action” and welcome visitors to our regular Thursday morning meetings held at Warwick Gardens Galore at 6.45 am . 

We wish all the residents of Warwick and district a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
