TODAY marks 10 continuous days of community service for members of the Rotary Club of Orange manning the driver reviver stop in Bathurst Road.
Yesterday members collected for the bushfire appeal to help residents of Coonabarabran by carrying around the bucket at the Community Markets under Kmart.
Club members also shared the volunteering at Lake Canobolas where club members were involved with the dragon boat races.
“It has been 10 very busy days of service for our members and everyone has put in a huge effort,” said club president Mick Doyle.
Last week the Rotary Club of Orange and the Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak combined to raise an amazing $10,000 in a street appeal for the bushfire victims.
Following on from that effort every morning last week members of the Rotary Club of Orange were in Robertson Park to cook breakfast as part of the Slow Summer program.
“It has been a week of looking around and seeing Orange shirts everywhere,” said Mr Doyle.
Separate from the $10,000 raised in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak, the Rotary Club of Orange has set itself another target of $5000 for the Coonabarabran bushfire victims and the events of this week will mean the club is well on the way to meeting the target.
“People have been extremely generous and very willing to contribute to the cause through some
fantastic donations,” Mr Doyle said.
