Supporting Blinky Bill

The RC Karrinyup this week gave a substantial donation in support of Blinky Bill - Car #96 in the Variety Bash 2021 to be held in August in the Pilbara. Blinky Bill is driven by local youth Ethan, along with his mum Jennifer as navigator. Our club was impressed to see a young person from our area fundraising for such a great cause. Started by Dick Smith in 1985, the Bash raises funds for the Children's Charity, Variety. To date, over $23 million has been raised for sick and disadvantaged kids around Australia. It is not a race or a rally, rather in Dick Smith's words, "a drive in the outback with a few mates" in cars that are 25 years or older, which have been done up in a fun theme.

The best treatment is prevention and the best prevention is to wear clean dry socks. Inspired by a presentation at the recent Joint Bi District Conference, RC Karrinyup member Sandra McGuire initiated a drive to support the Socks in the City project of the RC Heirisson to supply warm socks to homeless people in Perth. Sandra and her team collected both socks and money at club meetings and at the Stirling Farmers Market over several weeks. The results were amazing!

Partnership Opportunities with RC Beaufort

Collaboration is fundamental to the creation of social change. Collaboratively combining skills, knowledge and expertise across sectors with other clubs enables Rotarians to have more impact on complex social problems than we can have when working alone. Recently RC Karrinyup met with the RC Beaufort to enjoy fellowship, embrace our differences, recognise that we are both striving towards the same goals and assess ways in which collaborating or partnering on common projects with common interest could deliver more effective outcomes.
