Nepal Earthquake Appeal
On Saturday 2nd May, 2015, several club members ‘rattled the can’ at our regular Coles BBQ, raising $948 towards relief for the desperate people of Nepal. This amount is on top of a significant donation from a club member towards the two Shelterboxes that the Club has funded in response to this dreadful disaster.
Five Cent Project
Members and friends are invited to collect five cent pieces. Containers are provided by the Club to individual members and also placed in numerous retail and professional outlets throughout the city. This is a significant fund raising initiative for the Club with around $2000 being collected annually.
Fortnightly barbecues are held on Saturday at the Coles Supermarket outlet in Sand Bay, Hobart. A minimum of three Club members are rostered to run each barbecue. Specific projects, particularly disaster relief project such as cyclone or bushfire relief are occasionally featured as a focus for the fundraising on a particular day, otherwise the funds raised go to support the Club’s ongoing programmes.
Flower Show Catering
The Hobart Horticultural Society stages several flower shows each year in the Hobart Town Hall, and the Rotary Club of Salamanca has the responsibility of providing refreshments in the form of morning and afternoon teas and lunches for both the managing committee and members of the public. Sandwiches and scones, jam and cream along with hot and cold refreshments are provided. This is one of
the Club’s most significant sources of income. Members are rostered to prepare the food and to manage the point of sale facility.
