Therese Taylor, CEO of Colony 47, today welcomed a $6000 donation from Rotary for Colony 47’s Get on the Road project.
Ms Taylor said that the funding from five Rotary clubs: Salamanca, North Hobart, Sullivans Cove, Moonah and City Central Hobart would allow Colony 47 to assist a number of disadvantaged young people gain driving experience and training.
“Through this generous donation from Rotary, we will be able to facilitate valuable access to training and alleviate some prohibitive cost barriers that come with learning to driving,” Ms Taylor said.

Xavier Lane-Mullins (Red Cross) spoke about Red Cross’ involvement in immigrants and refugees. Red cross provides migration support for people affected by conflict, or coming to Australia by boat to seek protection (the UN decides if they are refugees). Usually this takes the form of language skills, social support & volunteer help.
Red Cross helps non-permanent refugees that have a well-founded fear of their life whereas the migrant centre helps refugees with a permanent visa. Usually refugees are detained by Australian customs before being released into Australian community, 30,000 refugees still require processing
Xavier spoke about illegal arrivals including Muslims & overseas students. Red cross supports a many these people in the community. Our club’s interest was acknowledged. Xavier’s role is to consult with people in that situation & the Red Cross
The most useful help for refugees are in the areas of:
3) community awareness (getting their stories out)
4) volunteering by the refugee
Employment & volunteering are where Rotary can help, ie introductions to employers, helping refugees find employment, where to seek employment, how to seek employment etc
Potentially could be a Rotary-sponsored breakfast, or potentially helping employers include refugee volunteers in their workforce.

Today we held our annual BBQ fundraiser at Bunnings. This time it was at their new location in Glenorchy, next to the Show Grounds.
It turned into a hot day, but the BBQ was very busy, and quite hectic around lunch time. We made approximately $1,200 after expenses which is a good effort.
Thank you to all who helped plan the event and those who helped on the day.
We must make a special thank you to the many who helped from the Rotary Club of Salamanca: Gill Whitehouse, Mike Woods, Tom Goninon, Liz Ryan, and Sue Hepburn.
