Club News
The Rotary Club of Malvern has been operating in Stonnington for over 60 years.
We have established relationships with local community groups, charities, service providers and businesses, which helps us identify where we can be most effective in giving our professional expertise and volunteer service to improve the lives of others.
Our club regularly participates in local events including Stonnington Pets in the Park, Very Special Kids Family Day, Environmental tree planting days and special charity events and fundraising activities.
We help support a number of local, domestic and international organisations and projects by hands on volunteering or by fundraising. Some of these include:- 
- Avalon - a "homeless" project based in Malvern
- The Malvern Emergency Food program - where "packs" of food are located at the Malvern and Prahran Police Stations for those struggling to purchase food
- Mental Health Packs - we provide basic items for those being admitted to several of the mental health units in hospitals across Melbourne
- End Polio Program
- Shelterbox - an organisation that provides items to help survivors of famine, war, earthquakes etc
- Koala Kids - members deliver items to Childrens cancer wards across Melbourne and directly to families with a child with cancer
Members are able to nominate which activities they wish to volunteer for depending on their interests, availability and expertise.
Many members of the public think that all we do as Rotarians is to "put a sausage on a barbie". But we know we do much more than that - and much of it is getting out and supporting other organisations doing amazing work in the community! 
Several of our members continue to deliver "goodies" and "supplies" on behalf of Koala Kids to Children's Hospitals across Melbourne and directly to families who have a child with cancer!  
The following Message was received from the Childrens Cancer Ward at the RMCH after a delivery last Thursday. 
"Thank you so much for dropping off our goodies from Koala Kids today we really appreciate your support. Love Merridy ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ"
Thursday's delivery included a number of the famous "Smash Cakes" - as you can see it brings so much joy to kids doing it tough!

If you (or a family member or friend) wants to participate with these deliveries - you do need to be fully uptodate with your Covid and flu vaccinations, have a WWC and be registered as a volunteer with Koala Kids. For more information talk to Gary, Paul or Sue.          
Last Saturday our Club was represented by Sue at RIMERN. It was a busy morning while Sue was there. A full truckload of items needed to be unloaded and moved to various parts of the warehouse. There was linen to be sorted into sizes and then bagged. Each week RIMERN assist around eight Melbournians (more if it is a family) moving from homelessness into their home!   
Note: The box Sue was carrying wasn't heavy - just full of sheets!    
The Rotary Clubs of Malvern, Chadstone East Malvern, Brighton and Brighton North joined together to host an evening in the Long Room at the
MCG as part of the Rotary International Convention in May 2023. Over 12000 Rotarians from around the world travelled to Melbourne. What a fabulous evening in a fabulous venue with the wonderful entertainer Michael Lapina! A highlight was to see the Rotary logo up on the MCG scoreboard.
