Bill Day helps health
Our guest speaker said he always wanted to put something back to help peoples’ health in the Wellington region.
Bill Day has done this in no small manner – he is the Chair of Life Flight Trust, Board member of Medical Research Institute of New Zealand and Wellington Free Ambulance, and Chair of Wellington Hospitals and Health Foundation, and he spoke about the accomplishments and challenges of these various organizations.
He also put a plug in for the very fine work done by ROMAC – Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children – and gave examples of the huge difference they were making to children’s lives in the Islands - any donations would be welcome. Bill provides all his many skills to Charity – he is a philanthropist with his time.

Your help needed - Red Shield Appeal
It's only a couple of weeks until the Salvation Army's annual Red Shield street appeal, which runs from Monday 28 April to Sunday 4 May. They desperately need help with collectors. If Rotarians from Rotary Club of Tawa can assist this year, we'd love to hear from you.
Just contact your nearest Salvation Army and let them know that you'd like to help this year. Or you can phone 0800 53 00 00 | email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Good health @ Revolve
The Tawa Rotary Revolve Gym class continues each Sunday, at midday, or 10 minutes earlier if you wish to warm up on a treadmill. At Revolve Gym, The Mall, Tawa. Tawa Rotarians and their friends / relations are very welcome to join - so come along and give it a go. FREE for first time attendees – else only $10pp per session. A bargain for a 40 min. weights and exercise circuit to tone up those muscles after Christmas and following Easter indulgences.
