North Balwyn’s Container to the Solomon Islands packed and ready


Members from the Rotary Club of North Balwyn have been busy at Donations in Kind filling a container with a range of educational materials, hospital equipment and other goods.

The container destined for The Solomon Islands which the locals call “The Happy Isles” was packed at Donations In Kind last Thursday.

The container and shipping costs to the Solomons was provided by The Don Bosco organisation and the goods from our Donations In Kind store and member donations. Thanks go to the many of you who donated Children’s Picture Books which were requested to assist reading and English language learning at Henderson.

Donations In Kind was able to provide the many other needed items such as medical supplies and hospital furniture, fabrics, chairs and so on.

Our Club bought bike service and repair equipment to accompany about 35 bicycles. Sewing machines and materials, computers, wheel chairs and sporting goods were also sourced by DIK, Members and others.
