OCEAN Grove Rotary Club donated $1500 from its latest Sunday market to the Ocean Grove Fire Brigade this month.
Club member Gillian Morgan said Rotary collected the proceeds from gold coin donations.
“It’s not only the CFA that benefits from these donations – most go to local community groups,” she said.
“Please come along on the first Sunday of each month to the market and help Rotary keep giving to the community.”
Fire brigade treasurer Martin Gearing said the money would go towards a new vehicle.
Also this month, ABC presenter Costa Georgiadis praised Rotary’s contribution to the Surfside Primary School kitchen-garden during his latest visit there.
Rotary has built fences, a chook pen, shed and shaded potting area in the nine years since the garden began.
The club also built many of the garden beds which supply the school’s kitchen with fresh produce for its students to cook.
Gillian said Rotary will continue to support the kitchen garden.
“It’s just another way we’re helping the community,” she said.
“Come and join us on Tuesday nights at 6pm at the Ocean Grove Bowling Club – we need to keep these community projects going into the future.”
