Seeking volunteers for another Bunnings BBQ fundraising opportunity.  We’ve been lucky enough to secure a big money maker – Christmas Eve, one of Bunnings’ busiest days of the year.

If you’d like to get into the Festive Spirit and volunteer some time to help the Club raise some funds contact pat Hansen on 0422007413.

All donations raised go directly to support Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, Surf Lifesaving in SA and the Community Charity work of the Rotary Club of Adelaide.

Social and Fund Raising Committee

Social and Fundraising Committee

It’s been a while since the club had a social and fundraising committee but we would like to start this important group up again.

If you have any ideas for social events and/or fundraising – or would just like to be involved we would welcome you joining this new group.

We will not be asking for too much of your time with the first priority to plan a calendar of events and activities for members and supporters (young and old).

An informal meeting will be held upstairs at the club on Sunday 21st October at 3pm for those that are interested in joining in.

For further information please give Pat Hansen a call on 0422 007 413 or email at phansen@adam.com.au.

Cross Country BBQ and Cake Stall a hit again!

Thank you to all of those who either volunteered or made items for the Club’s SAPSASA Cross Country BBQ and Cake stall.  As in previous years it was a huge success with the hungry runners.  Parents and teachers also sneaking a sausage or two and cupcake.  An extra thank you to Brad and Trudy Tunbridge who organised the event.  Our Club is a success because of its members.

Entertainment Books 2018

We are once again selling the entertainment books to help raise as much as we can this year. Last years books have just expired and the new book is once again filled with a bunch of great deals, just have a look below at some of the deals!

As per usual, we are fundraising through both the hard copy entertainment book, and the digital version, follow the links below to order your version. We aren’t storing any books at the club during our rebuild, but pickup from the shed can be organised through Sean McKenzie, who’s contact details are on the order link.
