Several young North Shore people with brain injuries will be helped to recover using a new recumbent tricycle donated from funds raised jointly by Northbridge Rotary Club and Manmos Cycle Group.
The new tricycle was presented to Gordon-based charity Fresh Tracks in September. The charity’s CEO Alan Lawrence was “over the moon”, with the donation bringing the total number of tricycles at the charity to seven.
“These specially-made three-wheeler trikes are designed for the disabled to ride, as the pedals can be adjusted to be hand-propelled and there are gears on the hand grip to suit each individual,” Alan said. “If the rider can only steer then there are handle bars for a carer to push the bike. Another advantage is that the rider can attach their feet to the pedals so that their legs move with the rotating wheels.  
Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world, and for people who have no means to pay, adequate health services are difficult to access.
Recently the Rotary Club of Northbridge supplied some dental equipment to the Samrong Health Centre (pictured below) in the Sotnikum Hospital, which is located about 34km eastern side of Siem Reap, Cambodia. The Health Centre services a population of 200,000, and had no proper facilities for providing dental care.
The equipment supplied includes a dental chair, autoclave, x-ray machine and dental consumables.  The project was supported by Club funds, a donation from one of our members, and a small District Grant.  The equipment was sourced from a supplier in Phnom Penh, ensuring that spare parts and maintenance/repairs will be available locally, and shipped to Siem Reap by road.
Spare parts and additional consumables will be funded by revenue from patients who are able to pay a fee which is less than the cost of a private service.  The very poor will receive the service for free.
Citation for the awarding of a sapphire pin to Sally O’Neill at the Rotary Club of North Sydney lunch,  4th August 2016
Sally O’Neill joined Sailability Middle Harbour in 2005 soon after it was formed.  From the outset her skills and ability shone out and I very quickly suggested she became our secretary and sailing day co-ordinator which she gracefully accepted. 
Showing considerable initiative she put in place all the necessary structure and systems which have allowed Sailability to grow and function properly.  Sally has overseen our growth from two boats and 5 members to  6 boats and 45 members.
Her boundless energy and dedication to our cause have resulted in hundreds of disabled sailors enjoying the opportunity to go sailing on the beautiful waters of Middle Harbour.  Further, she has brought together volunteers from all walks of life to work together like a well oiled machine to make each sailing day a success.
So in recognition of the considerable contribution you have made to the success of Sailability Middle Harbour over the past 11 years, it is my pleasure to award you a sapphire pin to go with your Paul Harris Fellowship
