There was a great response to the Raffle of two bottles of Muster Wine and four acrylic goblets at the District conference. The winner was Margaret Neal from the Rotary Club of Kincumber.
The total amount raised for ARH was $222 which represents around 50c per person who attended the conference.
Australian Rotary Health District Chair, Dudley Mercer said “Everyone who was asked bought a/some ticket(s) so, Thanks to everyone.”
ARH continues to be a large investor in Mental Health Research Scholarships, second only to the Federal Government.
The research is “By Australians – In Australia - then made available the World.”
A large number of research results and developed programs are in use overseas particularly the “Mental Health First Aid” program flagged by then President Obama as a very worthwhile program.
District 9685 is a very generous donor to ARH, something the committee is keen to maintain. Please keep ARH in mind when distributing funds or perhaps hold a special ARH event – this year’s Hat Day is titled “Lift the Lid” on mental health – look out for more information here later on.
Watch this space for more details of the D9685 contingent in the Muster for Mental Health later on in the year too.
