News From our Clubs & District
Rotary WA, Districts 9455 & 9465 have been announced Finalists in the 2021 Injury Matters Injury Prevention & Safety Promotion Awards for their Rotary WA Driver Education “RWADE” program.  Winners will be announced at a breakfast on Thursday 25th March at the Duxton Hotel Perth.
The finalist category "Outstanding Achievement in Collaboration for a Safer WA” is a tribute to Stakeholders, Community and Schools plus Rotarians in Metropolitan and Regional (Geraldton, Northam and Pinjarra) who have tirelessly worked with Rotary clubs over many years to establish a successful program in their efforts to save young lives.
RWADE fits well with and supports the Driving Change – Road safety strategy for Western Australia 2020 – 2030 aligning with schools in their Keys for Life Program. Last year 2,500 – 3000 students were reached state-wide, with the three Geraldton Clubs running the largest Regional program since 2015.
“Receiving this recognition is very exciting and a credit to so many who have provided ongoing support since our first program” said Rotary WA Coordinator Lindsey Francis.
We did it!!
The Rotary Club of Geraldton were pushing to beat last year’s Rotary Radio Auction tally and beat it by four thousand Dollars they did!
This Grand total of $40,040 was reached at the sound of the last bell on Sunday 1st November 2020.
So many helpers turned up this year to answer phones and assist where needed. The day as always ran smoothly and was full of excitement as the tension rose close to the closings seconds of each block.
From the onset, our “On Air Radio Team”, Jason McCarthy, Todd Gray, Leigh Jones, Peter Fiorenza & Glenn Barndon took the reins early morning, later joined by Grant Woodhams, Leigh Jones and Craig Walker keeping everyone on their toes with updates and providing vital information to listeners.
he Rotary Clubs of Geraldton are pleased to announce they have received $4,716.42 in grant funding from the Road Trauma Trust Account, through the Road Safety Commission.

Karrinyup Rotary – People of Action
Street Chaplains are non-denominational volunteers, who work on the streets of our city. They are ‘Good Samaritans,’ who provide crisis care unconditionally to any in need, offering compassion and practical help to all who need and want it especially the most vulnerable.
Some weeks ago, local Member for Carine, Tony Krsticevic MLA received a request for assistance from Street Chaplains, who were in need of a defibrillator, which would enable them to administer CPR, when they were required to deal with such emergencies.Since coming out of COVID-19 lockdown, Street Chaplains in Perth and the northern suburbs have dealt with a number of emergencies, which required the administering of CPR.
Their chaplains’ best efforts to revive the patients concerned could have been significantly hampered by the fact that there was no defibrillator available to them in the early hours of the morning.
They urgently needed a defibrillator that their chaplains could carry with them, as they walk the streets of Perth and this could literally become a matter of life and death.
