JO WHITE — Barwon Health Volunteer Patient Transport

Our Jo began driving as a volunteer twelve months after her treatment ceased.
She had noticed the need for drivers while being treated and was invited to attend the service.
Each Thursday she drives a group to Hydrotherapy at Grace McKellar and services Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsular.
It brings great joy to both her and the patients. A new car with Rotary Logo is about to be purchased.

CAMERON PIKE — Youth Without Borders.

Pres. Judy presented a cheque to Cameron on behalf of the Club.

Cameron explained that Youth Without Borders is an international Not-For-Profit organisation supported worldwide by numerous philanthropic organisations including ROTARY INTERNATIONAL and partnerships with many industrial and manufacturing companies.

In Australia YWB is focused in introducing the concept of Tertiary Education as a possibility for advancement to disadvantaged secondary school students including those from rural, indigenous and refugee backgrounds.

In July this year they will hold their second annual SPARK ENGINEERING CAMP — a week of education and experimentation to inspire the invited children to work as a team and be interested in an outcome — and to predict that outcome — for a procedure that they have devised to solve a problem.
