The Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak has donated $6000 to Housing Plus this week, with $5000 to go towards Orange’s domestic violence centre for women.

Daybreak’s Bob Derrick said the project was close to the club’s heart as was providing shelter to Orange’s homeless, which was where the additional $1000 would go. The former club president said the club had a successful 12 months and will use its good fortune to give back.

“Where there’s a need Rotary respond,” he said.

Mr Derrick said Orange Daybreak donated $20,000 to Western Care Lodge from 2017-2018 and $2000 to a disadvantaged children’s project for the Smith family, among other causes.

The donation comes the same week the state government announced a grant of $684,000 for the $3.1 million project.
