Wahroonga Rotary has raised Half a Million Dollars in the past 15 Years for YOUTH ASSISTANCE 

 

Over the past 15 years, the Wahroonga Youth Committee has raised over $485,000 for community projects…. which is an average of $32,000 per annum. 

The NOVUS Foundation contributed 0ver half of this amount.  NOVUS was a cooperative effort by the SAN Hospital, the McCarroll Automotive Group and Wahroonga Rotary.  It was a Not for Profit Foundation limited by Guarantee.   NOVUS was established in 2007.   It was active for over 18 years and raised around $2 million for Youth in our area.  When we started, we thought it may have a life of only 3 years but  due to the exceptionally effective effort by the three parties they were able to run 16 annual Gala Dinners and it ceased to operate in 2022.  

We chose a period of 15 years as we have clear records of where our $485,000 in Revenue and our $433,000 in expenditure was sourced and applied.   

Our Youth Committee is made up of a group of dedicated individuals (12 in all) who each have an individual passion for specific activities which ensures they stay interested, committed and dedicated.  

Membership has remained fairly constant with about half long term and others quite new.

A chilly start (7.00am) at the Claude Cameron Oval East Wahroonga on Sunday morning opening up to a beautiful sunny day and the volunteer members had a great time - Dave Rigby, Len Stanley, Ross Catterall, Greg Starr, Peter Kirkwood, Ian Cameron and Rob Giacometti tended the BBQ while Fiona Thomas, Arija McQuillan, Nermine Toma with Helen Clark and Mentie Knowles looked after the customers. Thanks to John Julius for sourcing the bread for the day, Berowra Rotary for loaning us the BBQ trailer and Mildren Events for the marquees and tables.
 
We sold all our sausages/bread and drinks so a very pleasing day. 350 Knox boarders and day boys and 250 competitors participated in the day.
