Donation in Kind Geelong
The Rotary Donation in Kind volunteers had our Christmas breakup barbecue yesterday at the North Geelong site near Osborne House. Peceli and I have enjoyed being part of this project which sends about fifteen containers to South Pacific and South-east Asian countries each year. This includes Fiji but at Lautoka they whack on a whopping $3000 customs charge for the excellent second hand goods that go to schools and hospitals. Not happy about that. One of our helpers makes about nine hundred lovely wooden toys in his workshop each year to give us to send to kindergartens overseas. A quiet achiever much appreciated.
