The Community Committee and friends planting trees around Victor Harbor 2019.
For more than 70 years the Rotary Club of Victor Harbor has been helping the local community to become a better place to live in. Through many different small projects which we call working bees members and friends have gathered together to paint, garden, clear up, build or update a space or building to make it safer and more appealing to those who use it.
One such example of this action is at Bradleys’ Place where our club has held many working bees to help create a peaceful haven away from the stresses and demands that come with having a child with cancer, or loosing a child to this terrible disease.
In recent years our club has worked on the following upgrades to Bradley’s Place: General clean up, make the property fire safe, new rain water tank, new playground, new disabled ramp (that included a district grant), new air-conditioning unit, numerous new pieces of furniture, electrical upgrades, pest control, maintenance among other things. We have been given discounts and free materials from some generous business.
A Staggering $1.6 million has been donated by our club in the last 38 years. See below the extensive list of local organisations which have benefitted from our club’s extensive fundraising activities.
