Projects being pursued by the current membership of 55 are increasingly wide ranging. The breadth of knowledge and experience among the Club members enables Turramurra Rotary Club to undertake humanitarian work in many places confident that their skill and experience can be put to good use. locally, activities include the removal of graffiti in Turramurra; co-managing the monthly Gordon Markets with Ku-ring-gai Rotary Club; and, in association with the Qantas Pathfinders Club, arranging the annual Jumbo Flight for disadvantaged children. Internationally, projects include an orphanage built after the Boxing Day Tsunami at Gampong Anak in Banda Aceh, Northern Sumatra, Indonesia; providing water and school facilities in East Timor in association with the Mary McKillop Institute; raising funds for Shelter Boxes to be used in disaster areas wherever they may occur; and developing a hospital for children in Bo, Sierra Leone. Individual Club members have visited the international locations of our projects to see for themselves what can be achieved. The understanding of the problems in the less fortunate parts of the world and the goodwill built up through these visits is inestimable.

East Cliff Rotary is a friendly and active group, mainly from the local business community, enjoying lively and varied activities. We follow Rotary’s main purpose, “seeking out and assisting people less fortunate than ourselves” in the local community, in the wider national region and internationally, within a context of Fun, Fellowship and Mutual Support. We meet regularly, socially and more formally working on projects to benefit those less fortunate than ourselves. This year, we are providing special support for Bournemouth Foodbank (The Trussel Trust), The Scouts (local groups), and The Prostate Cancer Research Centre. Other good causes will also be supported, including Bo Children’s Hospital, Sierra Leone, which we helped to establish.

We also help support the next generation of IH alumni through scholarships, competitions and other activities.
