PERTH ROTARY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
 
At the commencement of this Rotary Year there was a request by members for more opportunities to experience a hands on volunteering opportunity with the club.  With this in mind we have partnered with the Perth Rotaract Club and our corporate members.  Wendy Campbell and Darren Perera, Club Services Director are now coordinating Perth Rotary Members' volunteer opportunities.

    • February 28 and 1 March – Volunteers Required for the Hyde Park Fair, for the Path of Hope Foundation (POHF) 
       
      • Path of Hope is an approach that mobilises the organisational capacity of Rotarians to support the Salvation Army, agencies and services that provide safety and empowerment to women and their children escaping Family and Domestic Violence. In 2008 two friends offered to volunteer at a Salvation Army women’s safe house in Perth, Western Australia.  One of the women – Rebecca Tolstoy - became a member of the Rotary Club of Perth in 2011, and with the generous support of the club and the guidance of Salvation Army leaders, she developed a strategy to support the Salvation Army’s work with survivors of FDV.  In 2013 Path of Hope was formally launched as a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Perth and the Salvation Army in Western Australia.
