2022 Virtual Train Ride to End Polio


Over the past three years, there has been an All Stations challenge in Sydney and other cities around Australia and New Zealand, to raise money for the Rotary End Polio Now Campaign. These events have raised over $450,000 — and that’s before the Gates Foundation generously participates in its 2:1 match. Ironically, due to another contagious and dangerous virus, we're not able to do our normal train ride. Instead, this year we'll be doing it virtually. Our Club will still be donating funds to the End Polio Now campaign, and we're also asking all members to take a photo of themselves under their nearest train station sign, and send that to risppo.trf@rotary.org. All photos will be used in press-releases and promotional material for this initiative.

Council on Legislation


Each 3 years the Council on Legislation (COL) is held in Chicago with this year likely to be an on-line event. In the run up to this, we're keen to seek the views on Club Members on proposed legislation, which can then be fed back to the District to inform the way in which they will vote. The legislation book contains all proposed legislation which are are able to review and comment on. If you would like to have a say in the future of Rotary as a global organisation, please download and review the book, and provide any comments or concerns to info@rotarydarlingharbour.org.au.

2022 RYLA Candidates: Jessica Burns and Madalanne Taylor


The Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour will again be participating in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) this year, and we have been lucky enough to be able to sponsor two candidates to attend the RYLA week, Jessica Burns and Madalanne Taylor. As with previous years, the young individuals we're sponsoring are already stellar representatives of young people. Jessica heads a global development team at Macquarie Bank, and is involved heavily in Surf Life Saving and professional mentoring. Madalanne is engaged as a Student Support Officer at Tranby Indigenous Education and Training College, providing quality educational and vocational support to members of the Indigenous community, to help them thrive in their endeavours. RYLA is one of the longest standing youth initiatives that the Club is involved in, and is a part of how our Club is able to play a part in people growing into the best versions of themselves. We really look forward to hearing about how Jessica and Madalanne experience RYLA, and we look forward to seeing their continued good works in the future.

Kevin Watene and Homelessness in our own Backyard


On the 24th of November, Kevin Watene from the Salvation Army presented to our Club about the Salvation Army's response to homeless in Sydney. Homelessness is and always has been a key concern for the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour, making it especially poignant to hear Kevin's experiences of individuals without a home, and especially heartening to hear about the Salvation Army's robust network of services designed to provide support to individuals and families facing this challenging situatio

Repairing Bodies and Rebuilding Lives


This week, the Club was lucky enough to be visited by Vimla Hayman from the Rotary Club of St George Next Gen, who spoke to us about Interplast's work in supporting teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to provide life-changing surgery in 17 countries in the Asia Pacific region. Vimla spoke to several examples of the important and life-changing work that Interplast does, in providing hope and support to individuals who have suffered life changing injuries, and young children born with cleft lip and palate, or serious scarring. The Club was moved, in seeing the dramatic before and after photos of the recipients of Interplasts support, and the volunteer spirit and generosity that goes into making their important and challenging work possible.

Creating a Safe Place for Men to Share


Last week, members of the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour heard from David Pointon, founder of The Men's Table. The Men's Table is 'a place where men can talk about what's really going on and how they're feeling'. Groups of about 12 men meet once a month over dinner, with the aims of: being heard; creating a trusted peer group; and creating a sense of belonging and community. Over the last two years, The Men's Table has also seen the introduction of virtual tables and forums, and this year, celebrated its 10th anniversary.
