Mt Kosciuszko Wheelchair Summit Challenge

Children with disabilities sometimes miss out on exciting activities.  That's why Turramurra Rotary is starting a brand new program:

on 3rd March 2018, 
we’re taking a small group of 
adventurous kids in wheelchairs 
to the top of Australia’s 
tallest mountain — Mt Kosciuszko!

The Mt Kosciuszko Wheelchair Summit Challenge provides an opportunity for children in wheelchairs to have a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experience of summiting Mt Kosciuszko, with arrangements made by Rotary and the assistance of support teams*.

Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal

Our Club co-ordinates the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal doorknock in the Turramurra, Pymble, West Pymble and South Wahroonga areas. Supported by local residents, students from PLC, Knox and Turramurra High School, and members of Ku-Ring-Gai Rotary, we aim to doorknock 10,000 homes and raise $50,000 for the Salvation Army.

The Red Shield Appeal is usuall; held on a Sunday in May. We need 300 persons to doorknock, and another 50 to act as drivers and team leaders.

Cameron Park

Rotary International celebrated its centenary in 2008 and in recognition of this, the Club decided to give Cameron Park the big "makeover".

Cameron Park, located in the centre of Turramurra on Eastern Road (just near the intersection with Rohini Street) is one of the most widely used recreational areas in Turramurra, particularly by parents with young children. With the close support and co-operation of Ku-Ring-Gai Municipal Council, Turramurra Rotary Club designed, built and funded a new children's outdoor play area, tricycle track, outdoor seating and garden makeover.
