Rotary helps fund anti-bullying classes

Groups went from one driveway feast to another

A community fundraiser has raised over $1000 to help fund self-esteem and anti-bullying classes at a local primary school.

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water hosted their Stroll, Sip and Sample fundraiser on Sunday, November 22, to help raise funds for the Iris Foundation.

The event had guests walking from one driveway feast to another, with Mexican and Greek cuisines on offer, an ‘Aussie fare’ of pies and lamingtons, a cheeseboard, and a desserts table.

President and treasurer Peter Mote said he was delighted to report the success of the event and wished to thank each host and helper.

“Jayne and her team have done a fabulous job on this event and deserves our thanks and admiration for a job well done,” Mote said.

“We heard so many positive comments and guests were keen on a repeat event next year.”

Mote said the total amount raised had not yet been confirmed as raffle monies are expected to be added, but said he expected it to be close to $1500.
