Lower Blue Mountains Rotary has received a generous offer from a Penrith businessman in support of the Rotary Bushfire Appeal …
 
The businessman and his wife have decided to donate funds from the sale of their longtime family vehicle – a 1987 Mercedes Benz 560SEL sedan – to Rotary in a highest tender fund raiser. 
 
The vehicle (pictured) has 326,000 kms on the clock and has been serviced every 10,000 kms. Registered (DJC 033) until September, 2020, it is a one owner car and has been garaged every night.  
 
Tenders are required to be forwarded to two difference email addresses -
 
PP Ken Linfoot
Secretary
Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains
 
PP Drew Fitzpatrick
Treasurer
Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains
 
Tenders close at 2 pm on Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Our Australian Rotary District Governors have agreed to establish a central fund into which all Australians can donate to support the victims of the devastating bushfires ravaging our country.
 
A link to the fund can be found on the main page of the RAWCS (Rotary Australia World Community Service) website: https://rawcs.org.au
 
 
 
 
 

The Bobbo has a great reputation within the cycling community. There are four different routes which riders can select according to their abilities. Serious cyclists return year after year to challenge themselves on the longest rides, while social cyclists will enjoy the shorter routes.

All the routes go through some of the most stunning bushland and waterfront scenery in the Greater Sydney region. Some 2,500 riders are supported by around 450 enthusiastic volunteers who, along with the Police, SES and St Johns, make it one of the best-organised and safest events on the cycling calendar.

We’d really appreciate any help you can give us to provide maximum publicity for the Bobbo. Please consider entering a team from your Club. Teams of five or more who raise over $1500 are eligible to access the Corporate Hospitality Marquee for free refreshments, snacks, beer and massage.

The funds raised by this terrific event helps Lifeline year after year to save lives through their Crisis support counselling. Please lend us your support for 2020 as we try to break through the $1 million fundraising milestone!

We look forward to your support and if you have any questions please give me a call. See too www.bobbo.com.au
