The inaugural Environment Day Awards were announced at Beaumont House on Sunday 11 April with the Rotary Club of Burnside receiving an award on the day for being "Unsung Heros" on the environmental front.

The awards celebrate initiatives and activities that Burnside community members are implementing, across four award categories in the City.

Climate Change Challenge award winners, and Burnside residents, Dr Susan Marsden and Michael Szwarcbord said that they feel strongly about the threats to us all from the climate crisis.

"Everything we can all do, large and small, is really important," Dr Marsden said.

The award winners each received a wooden bowl made by Burnside resident and local wood turner, Flora Rumbelow, as their award 'trophy'. Most of the trophies were turned from a section of a fallen Red Gum branch. One trophy was made from an Olive tree branch taken as part of a regular pruning program at Beaumont House.

In the early 1990s David Harvey a member of the Rotary Club of Burnside, initiated an environmental project in conjunction with the Burnside Council to revegetate a disused quarry and council rubbish dump within Chambers Gully Park. During the 2020 lockdown, small groups constructed 22 new habitat boxes for birds and possums.

GOOD NEWS

 

WHERE OUR FUNDRAISING GOES

The Rotary Club of Burnside is involved in many projects in the areas of youth, our community, environment & health locally and internationally.

Despite the challenges that Covid-19 threw up to us, in the 20/21 Rotary Year our club still managed to raise over $26,000 to put towards these projects and causes.  Here's a few highlights.

As always, supporting our local youth in their educational, sporting and leadership development was a key focus.  With support for students to attend the National Youth Science Forum and test themselves by sailing on the One & All as part of the Rotary Youth Sailing programme we saw some incredible results.

Locally, the Rotary Club of Burnside endeavored to hold the Seniors Christmas lunch at the Burnside Town Hall.  Covid had other plans, and the event was postponed until May of 2021 for a Christmas themed lunch.  Normally this event attracts over 120 local seniors for a 2 course lunch and drinks but restrictions meant numbers were reduced to around 80 guests.  

Through Rotary International we also support a number of organisational initiatives.

ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children) aims to provide children of our neighbouring countries specialist medical care for those at risk of severe deterioration or even death.  Here in South Australia, two children from the Solomon Islands were supported in life-saving heart surgery this year.

The Rotary Foundation continues its fantastic work across the globe with the "End Polio" focus being top priority.  With only a handful of recorded polio sufferers noted, and generous backing from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this major project is making a concerted effort to knock this dreaded disease out.  The Rotary Club of Burnside provides a significant contribution to the Foundation each year.

In our first season of Market at the HUB, we raised over $8,500 to go towards a number of charitable and community organisations.

Recipents included;

  • Rotary Mental Health

  • Helping SA Farmers

  • Catherine House

  • Polio Plus

  • Burnside CFS

  • Foodbank

  • Guide Dogs SA

  • Koala Rescue

  • Hutt Street Centre

We look forward to helping more wonderful organisations during the next season of Market at the HUB
