Wheel Chair For Kids
3rd Apr 2017
This remarkable volunteer organisation, comprised of local retiree volunteers, and supported by the Rotary Club, produces and distributes over 300 wheelchairs per month to disabled children in third world or developing countries.
During our ‘Wheelathon’, our girls and boys pushed and were pushed around a course, using the wheelchairs made by the volunteers, to raise money for this organisation. Early indications are that we have raised over $6,000, considering that one wheelchair costs $200, this has been a wonderful effort.
