RCB response to Bushfire Emergency
The Rotary Club of Brighton has commenced its response to the current bushfire crisis with a $5000 contribution to the Wilson Storage - Bushfire Appeal via Go Fund Me. All contributions made via this appeal go to the Victorian CFA. Over many years Wilson Storage have been a major supporter of our Club's fundraising efforts. Wilson have matched our $5000 donation, so $10,000 is now on its way to the Victorian CFA.
If you would like to contribute via the Wilson Storage - Bushfire Appeal, they will continue to match contributions up to a maximum of $100,000. Contributions are tax deductible and a receipt will be issued confirming contributions to the Victorian CFA. Please visit Link
Our Club's next major fundraiser is the Great Australia Day Swim, Sunday 26 January 2020. All proceeds from the Great Australia Day Swim raffle will be contributed to bushfire relief. In addition when registering for the swim competitors have the opportunity to make a donation to the club's bushfire response. A tax deductible receipt will be issued. Link
Club President Keith has spoken to Rotary District Governor 9800 Grant Hocking regarding the Rotary District 9800 Bushfire Disaster Fund. Our club will make a contribution to this fund in the near future.
Over the next few weeks our club's Board will continue to assess other opportunities to contribute further club funds and raise funds, to assist people, communities and the wildlife impacted by these devastating bushfires.
