The Club’s third annual Bridge Day was held on Friday 23 August and was a great success, with 19 tables of bridge players and a net profit of $4,062 made. This means just over $2,000 to each of the beneficiary charities for the day - Rotarians Against Malaria - PNG, and Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale.
The event was held at Northbridge Golf Club, and the service was excellent. Our bridge playing guests loved the venue and the sandwich lunch provided. Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney officially opened the event and told everyone what wonderful projects the Club has been, and is, involved in together with details of where the funds raised are spent. Then two of our Rotarians, Susan Law and Barry Anderson, spoke about the charities of the day, prompting our guests to buy even more raffle tickets. We are very grateful for the many prizes donated to the Raffle by generous Rotarians.
Thank you to the 10 Rotarians who volunteered their help on the day and the ladies who made the delicious cakes and slices for our guests’ lunch. Finally, thanks to Fay and her friend Filanphie who ran the Gift table, showing off Filanphie’s talents as an artist and cook of beautiful chocolates and fudges and to Amy Brittain for donating her homemade jams and bath salts.
The Northbridge Rotary Club held its Changeover Dinner recently at the Gunners Barracks in Mosman.  The Presidential chains of office were handed over to Peter Antaw who will serve as President for the next 4 months. This is an unusual  year where the presidential role will be shared by three people. 
Peter Antaw was President of the Club in 2002-3 and, at that time, there were just 2 females amongst the 58 members.  In the article below titled ‘Peter takes over’, he expressed the need for more women in the Club.  This has certainly been achieved.  There are now 13 female members and they were captured on film relaxing and having fun at the dinner.
Later in the evening, Paul Harris Awards were presented to Rob Coote, Kevin Tattrie and Liz Grey for their exceptional contribution to the Club over the past 3+ years.
The Rotary Club of Northbridge is one of the largest and most dynamic Clubs and new members and guests are always welcome.  For more details, please contact email:

The Rotary Club of Northbridge is building on their long-standing support of youth with expanding support across 6 different youth specific, leadership and experience focus programs. The outcomes of these programs continue to motivate the club to build on these programs with increased support.

Among these programs are high school leadership, science, engineering and experience programs.  One of these programs is RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) aimed at year 9 & 10 who want to build their confidence and self-esteem. RYPEN provides young people the opportunity to build leadership potential, encourages them to explore their ideas in problem solving, team activities, and experiences that will assist them in forming their own values. RYPEN is about building confidence and developing skills to cope in a range of situations. The Rotary club of Northbridge has doubled it’s support of this amazing program from sponsoring 4 awardees each of the last 2 years to 8 awardees this 18/19 year. Follow this link for more information about RYPEN.

Funds raised by Northbridge Rotary via a bucket appeal at Northbridge Plaza have been put to good use as reported below.
During Tropical Cyclone Debbie in 2017, the Sarina Range in Queensland experienced a massive landslide that effectively cut off 16 families (30 students) from the school campus.  Education Queensland quickly established accommodation for the isolated students.  However, suddenly and rather traumatically, the 30 students and their families had to adjust to changed life circumstances, grief and loss, separation from their previous school community and increased cost of living to travel extended distances to access shops, doctors, workplaces and other social supports such as scouts, sporting activities and dance.
This project, funded by the Northbridge Rotary Club totalling $3255, provided support for children’s skill development (swimming classes) and social interaction with peers at Inter school athletic activities. These monies paid for bus services to transport children between schools, then on to the swim classes and their athletics carnival. Without this grant the school, P&C and students would have been financially disadvantaged and unable to provide the access and learning opportunities that were offered to the students at the temporary accommodation.
The Rotary Club of Sarina and the Swayneville State School students, parents, teachers and community are thankful to the Northbridge Rotary Club and Townsville District 9550 Disaster Management grants that facilitated the social, and emotional well-being of these school children, alleviated a potentially onerous financial burden on the P&C and parents who were already financially disadvantaged. Your financial and club support has provided joy, growth, opportunities, personal development, pride, skill and water safety in all the children of the Swayneville State School Campus. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Northbridge Rotary wish to thank the local community for their tremendous support during our recent ‘Drought Appeal’ fund raising efforts.  In total, Northbridge Rotary has raised $20,000 from our various BBQ’s, book stalls and bucket collections. 
$10,000 of this has been directed via retail shopping vouchers to farmers in the North and West Regions of NSW.  Working with the team from the Rural Financial Counselling Service in the Central Region, we have aimed to directly aid farmers most in need.  The vouchers enable farmers to purchase groceries at their local supermarket and this helps to stimulate local retail trade and keep people employed in rural towns.
A further $9,000 has been distributed via our Rotary colleagues in Longreach, who are working closely with the Western District Drought Committee in Queensland. Again, 100% of all donated funds are directly redistributed via retail vouchers to drought impacted households.
