As most of you will know, our Club has supported the indigenous homeland, Donydji or, as it is now known, Gurrumala, for over 15 years, both financially and in kind. Until his sudden death, John Mitchell was a key member of the Rotary Subcommittee providing this support and was its Chairman from its inception.

In Australia today, on any one night, 105,000 people are homeless. Of these 46,000 are women and 63,000 are 34 years of age or less with 18,000 children under 12. Get involved in projects to end homelessness and support the homeless in Melbourne particularly among young people, working with other like-minded organisations.
RCM members volunteer weekly to collect surplus fresh food at the Queen Victoria and Prahran Markets. Second Bite then redistributes donated food to community food programs for the disadvantaged. Volunteers donate 2 hours of their time to collect donations, and are rostered up to 6 times a year.
