Our EVS volunteers have been working night and day over the last two weeks and here they are having a well deserved rest after fighting fires throughout the night. They have worked tirelessly in Somerset West, Helderberg, Paarl and lately Simon’s Town. Just look at the ages of these volunteers, it is heartening to know that there are some youngsters ready to help their own and other communities. Most of them will be back at school this week. A HUGE thank you to these selfless heroes!
CAPTION: A whopping R273 143.60 was raised at the Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Table Bay’s 21st annual wine auction. The money raised at the glamorous gala evening has been donated to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), who will be using the funds towards a rescue vehicle for their Station 10 in Simon’s Town. Rotarian Richard Burnett (pictured above left) from the Rotary Club of Newlands, welcomed the guests and opened the proceedings. “The annual wine auction has become quite an institution to raise much-needed funds for the NSRI,” says Burnett. “Being part of this tremendously successful initiative aligns very well with our core value of service above self,” adds Burnett.

Past President Colin Burke organised a wonderful team of youngsters to fly the Rotary Club of Newlands flag. They did well in coming third overall, winning the best spirit award and the best drummer award! Corinne Hudson did a sterling job in organising and providing food and refreshments for the rowers. Terry Lancaster, Graham Findlayson, Andy Ismay, Heidi Anderson, Bill Holland Melinda Stapleton supported the event.
