This year we are collecting for 3 separate groups with our Christmas Hampers.
1.  Homeless Persons Project through Bolton Clarke/Royal District Nurses.
Through member Matiu Bush we donate goods to the centre in West Melbourne who then distribute through their nurses and contacts. 
We need toiletries and sanitary products, food items, socks and undies.
 
2.  Disadvantaged children supported by the Moonee Valley Maternal & Child Health Nurses. 
Each year we provide a Christmas Pack for about 30 children and seek donations of books, toys, sporting items, toiletries for teenagers and mothers, perhaps a special food item.
 
3.  Share the Dignity/It's in the Bag.  This project supports disadvantaged women, those fleeing domestic violence and abuse, homeless teenagers.
Toiletres, sanitary products, hairbrush/comb, tissues or handkerchiefs, perhaps some perfume or a hairclip, food item.
 
Can you help us to help others?
Donations will be accepted at the Op Shop, 444 Racecourse Road Flemington.  See Sam.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington has established a foundation to manage and disburse funds raised through their two Opportunity Shops.  This foundation is a registered company and has received registration as a charity from the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission effective  26 September 2019.
 
The Trustees for the Foundation are:  Lesley McCarthy, Peter Donnellan and Lyn Borghouts.
 
All requests for funding/support from the foundation must be submitted in writing through a member of the Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington and will be considered at a monthly meeting.  Criteria for support are those identified by the ACNC for benevolent need.  The Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington Foundation also requires all project claims to adhere to the goals and areas of focus identified by Rotary International.
The inaugural Flemington Kensington Rotary Art Show is over.  What an amazing event and what a truly fabulous celebration of art in our Flemington Kensington and wider community.
 
Sincere thanks to all our sponsors who are shown on our carousel photo album.  Particular thanks to the City of Melbourne for their support through Community Use of the Town Hall.
Congratulations to all artists who submitted work, and especially to the prize winners.  Special mention must be given t Felix from Mount alexander College whose photographic submission won the secondary school award; and to Flemington Community Centre whose art installation constructed by students at the centre won the younger students award.

See below for the prize winning artists and their works.
 
 
Today we held the first working bee at Ascot Vale West Primary School.   
The plan is to create a sensory garden to surround the new Buddy Bench,
and create an enjoyable space for children to sit, chat and enjoy the fragrances.
 
This project has been supported by a Rotary District 9800 Foundation Grant.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The end result looks amazing.

It is with immense delight we were advised that the first playground from the recent container to Sri Lanka has been installed and officially unveiled today.   This playground has been placed at a children's play area in Ampara, about 360 km east of Columbo.

The formal ceremony was conducted by President Dr Davaratna of the Rotary Club of Ampara in the presence of President Sarav Soundar 
of the Rotary Club of Columbo, Past District Governor Senake Ameresinghe and PP Pubudu De Zoysa Chairman of District 3220 projects
as well as Urban Council dignitaries and a large number of Rotarians.
 
This playground was extracted from the Quantin Binnah park in Werribee.
