Hello friends of KINI
 
It has been quite some time since the last Newsletter but things have been so busy here and my hands were full thus have only now been able to get this to you. 
 
We are needing more sponsors for needy children as we have had to add quite a number for this coming year. With KINI being known far and wide, we have many requests for children to be cared for who are in danger or being taken out of school. Day student fees are as low as $15 per term. Please email me if you have any questions. 
 
Again thank you for supporting KINI these last 7 years and we wish you a blessed Christmas and very prosperous new year.

The Bobbin Head Cycle Classic (the Bobbo), will be held on Sunday 29 March 2020.  Please spread the word, recruiting riders and supporting their fundraising.

 

The Bobbo is owned and managed by the Rotary Clubs of Turramurra, Kuring gai, Wahroonga and St Ives. Since the first event 9 years ago this unique partnership of Rotary Clubs has raised over $800,000 for our charity partner Lifeline and other selected charities.

 

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. You will find attached a flyer which can easily be included with your Club’s newsletter. Please also 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!

The Rotary Foundation provides hundreds of grants per year around the world. 
 
A new tool on the Rotary.org website enables members to see the range of grants that have been awarded.
 
Using reports to manage grants
Grants reports are now available to all Rotary members in the Reports area of My Rotary. Encourage your clubs to use them to manage their grants. A guide to these reports shows members how to search for grants by sponsor, participation, location, and more. There’s also a Cadre Member Information report that lists members of The Rotary Foundation Cadre of Technical Advisers who can offer clubs advice on their grant-funded projects.
 
Grant management training materials
Grant management resources are now available in Rotary’s Learning Center. Find courses on making your project sustainable, conducting community assessments, planning effective projects, managing grant finances, qualifying your club for Rotary grants, reporting on grants, and much more. Consider using the online courses as a way for clubs to get qualified for a Rotary Foundation grant. Or combine them with a shorter in-person training that gives members a chance to discuss district requirements and ask questions.

District Vocational Excellence Awards - Event and Nomination form.
 
 
Nominations are due by Friday 22 November 2019 and can be emailed to

Dear fellow members,
This is a gentle reminder and a request.
So far this year only three of us have renewed our Centurion membership. 
 
Don’t forget it’s only $A100 for the year and it's tax deductible. 
And it goes to OUR charity – the Rotary Foundation. 
And, in a couple of years, some of it comes back for us to access as District Grants for our projects.
All you need do is complete the form and send it to RI.
 
Regards
Gavin
