The Rotary Club of Knox has been helping people in need and supporting the local community since 1980.
Some of the more recent projects and causes where we have made a difference include;
♦ Sponsoring local young people and students through various Rotary Youth Leadership Programs.
♦ Sponsor of the Interact Club of Scoresby Secondary College.
♦ Knox Mental Health Forum
♦ Knox Community Police Car
♦ Regular donations to Knox Infolink – helping people in need with food parcels, toiletries and other material aid.
♦ Swinburne University of Technology Horticultural Department – sponsor of ‘Best Horticultural Student of the Year’
♦ Organiser of the KNOX SHOWnSHINE car meet – the club’s largest fundraising initiative.
♦ Financial support to Foothills Community Care that provides meals and support to the most vulnerable in our area.
♦ Sponsor of the Gavin Hickling Perpetual Award – recognising an outstanding student from Bayswater Primary School.
A strong focus of the club continues around youth based initiatives, from helping those socially disadvantaged and in dire need of support in the community, to others that participate in Rotary Youth Leadership programs that develop skills and knowledge for them to become tomorrow’s leaders.
