300 Knitted Beanies for Uganda & Seafarers


Did you know that between Rosemary and Dawn they have knitted 300 beanies. WOW!

200 beanies were knitted by Dawn and Rosemary, and sewn by Rosemary. These made their way to Uganda.

"These will be part of a shipping container full of medical equipment going to Uganda and is due to leave in the next couple of weeks from DIK. Surprisingly the climate on the Uganda/South Sudanese border can get chilly and particularly for folk unwell in hospital.  To have soft, warm, love filled beanies of cheer will be an unexpected comfort." PDG Bronwyn Stephens.

On top of this, Rosemary has knitted 100 beanies for the Mission for Seafarers.

Well done to both Rosemary and Dawn. Your blood is worth bottling! :)

EPS pollutes Yarra River

Summary of a presentation by the Yarra Riverkeeper Dr. Karin Tragear to Environmental Sustainability - Rotary Action Group (ESRAG):

Save your Bread Tags

Bring along your Bread Tags to our next meeting and hand them to Tania.

Bread tags are not turned into wheelchairs. The recyclers make a donation for the tags and these donations fund the wheelchairs. Our Australian recycler, Transmutation in Robe, SA, has so far made door knobs, coasters, bowls, cheese boards, clocks and pens from bread tags and is continuing to experiment with new products. Check their website or Facebook page for updates.  In South Africa the tags are recycled into seedling trays.
