Good sports come a-knocking

The dedicated bunch of cyclists and volunteers get ready to doorknock for Rotary and Red Cross. 166380

Local sporting organisations have rallied together to help Rotary with its annual Red Cross doorknock.
A social group of cyclists were the first to visit homes around Ocean Grove asking for donations.
Rotary is behind the annual Red Cross Calling initiative, but a lot of its members are not as agile as they used to be and that’s where the sporting groups are helping out.
The cyclists, along with the cricket and football/netball clubs have volunteered their time to help out with collecting donations.
March is Red Cross Calling month and the volunteers will be out collecting in 40 sections of Ocean Grove. Last year Rotary raised $10,000.
Wet weather put a dampener on the cycling group’s planned collection on 21 March, but they were back out there on the Thursday to help.
The cricket club will be next to do the rounds, followed by the football/netball club.
