Here are some of the local services we have supported.

Manor Gardens Club is a purpose built day respite centre, situated in an ordinary suburban street which offers experienced care, in a home-like environment.  This began in response to a community letter to our Rotary Club.  They offer members the warmth and companionship of daily living while providing comfort and support to the carer.  The club may also provide relief from loneliness and self-care worries for members living alone, by providing social interaction and a home cooked meal.

 

The Kingston Beach Fun Run and Walk is a 5km timed event which is great for people of all ages and abilities. It starts at the Kingborough Sports Centre and finishes at Kingston Beach, in Tasmania.

Action

Each year we enjoy sharing the special Rob Pennicott Cruise to Betsey Island from Dru Point, Margate. It occurs near Father's Day and is at a local family focused area.

Perfect fun place for families with many BBQs, open fields for sports, all age and abilities play grounds, and pleasant walks(including dog friendly walk areas). Cafe open til 3pm. Love the kids bike track with traffic lights.

Kingston Rotary enjoy sharing the experience each year at Dru Point for the Yellow Boat Journey in partnership with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys.  Our adventurers comment is 'it a most enjoyable Saturday outing on Fathers Day weekend'.
