Have you got a passion to give back that Rotary could make real? The place to start is by finding and getting in touch with your local Club. There's more than likely a Club near your work or home that is full of people just like you who enjoy giving something back while working with friends and developing personal and professional networks.

2018 Northbridge Rotary Fireworks

The support of the local community was fantastic.  Despite questionable weather, almost 2000 people converged onto Northbridge Oval for what was yet another spectacular Rotary Community Fireworks event in May. 
 
120 Rotarians, friends and supporters alike, did a fantastic job behind the scenes, putting it all together.  Stellar musical Band performances by students from Northbridge Public School, Cammeray Public School and Willoughby Girls High, really brought the evening alive. Other entertainment included Kids rides, lots of food from the Rotary BBQ’s and other offerings from several of our local business Sponsors. 
Fifteen minutes of “snap, crackle and bang” then set the night alight!
 
Funds raised by the evening were just short of $30,000.   Much of this provided support to several local and international projects.  Local beneficiaries included EarlyEd, who provide early education support for local children with disabilities; Taldumande Youth Services, supporting vulnerable and homeless children in our region; The Rural Fire Service, and other Rotary projects working toward the eradication of Polio throughout the world, and other projects aiding research into dementia.  These though, are only a small section of entities that Rotary would like to assist and support.
 
The Rotary Club of Northbridge greatly appreciate the support of our majors supporters for this event – being AMP Capital/Northbridge Plaza, Commonwealth Bank, Willoughby Council, Coates Hire, Ray White, Anytime Fitness Northbridge, The Northbridge Hotel, BeachLife Physiotherapy, All Occasions Pyrotechnics, Borusso’s, BackVintage Wines, Castlecrag Montessori School, and last but not least, the Rural Fire Service. 
 
The Northbridge Community fireworks are only one of many events organised by Northbridge Rotary that provides aid to local support entities, who, in turn, help individuals in need, in our community and throughout the world.
I am honoured to advise you ShelterBox has been nominated for the 2018  Nobel Peace Prize, the winner to be announced in October.  Whatever the result, this is an amazing nomination and we are truly honoured. The nomination reflects the incredible work done by the ShelterBox staff and volunteers around the world, and to those who have supported us, especially the many Rotary Clubs and Rotarians.
 
The nomination is also an implicit recognition of the partnership between ShelterBox and Rotary International.  Two great organisations combining their efforts to provide disaster aid wherever it may be required across our world.  I am reminded that last year we helped 32,000 households, or 160,000 people, who had lost everything through conflict or natural disaster. We responded to world events 24 times in the year and deployed aid to 20 different countries. Rotary groups around the world helped us provide vulnerable people with emergency shelter and aid in almost all of the countries we have worked in affected by natural disaster.  In 2017, we also surpassed the highest number of days ever deployed in one year. This includes 84 ShelterBox Response Team volunteers who deployed for a total of 1,530 days. That’s an average volunteer deployment of 18 days each.
 
I never underestimate the impact of the support of Rotary International, Rotary Clubs and individual Rotarian has to ShelterBox in achieving our goal of no family without shelter.
 
As we continue to pursue our goal, we thank each and every one of you for the support given, and make an impassioned plea for that support to continue into the future.  As individual organisations we can make a difference in the world; as a partnership we can do even more.
 
Thank you.

Through the commitment of our supporters, ShelterBox can provide emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by conflict and natural disaster.
 
The Rotary Club of Northbridge - through our various events and via generous donations received from members of the community, has been able to provide equivalent to 57 ShelterBoxes at the cost of $1000 each to ShelterBox Australia since 2007.
 
Each of these boxes is given a number which can then be linked to its ultimate deployment   in disaster areas around the world.
 
Below is a list which shows box number, related disaster and deployment location of 48 of the Shelterboxes that have been deployed by Rotary Club of Northbridge.
 
ShelterBox (https://www.shelterboxaustralia.com.au/about/) will have a display at the Northbridge Rotary Community Fireworks Event on May 12th, 2018.  Come along, have a look, and consider a donation to this worthy cause.
