Getting Hands-on

Our members like nothing better than rolling up our sleeves and getting hands-on with projects.  Whether it is a major build, a working bee or just helping out on someone's event, these are great fellowship activities for members that make outstanding contributions to our local community.  It is one of the key reasons why our members love being part of the
Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise
Below is just a sample of what we get up to...

Building Beach Boxes

Over recent years, we've built 3 of them on Frankston Beach netting almost $300,000 for local causes
Literally built from the ground up, this video tells the story of one of them.  Check it out here

Blackwood Outdoor Education Centre

We have an ongoing association supporting this wonderful facility that provides outdoor experiences and camps for children with disabilities.  One of our favourite parts of this is an annual working bee on the first weekend in December

Community Support Frankston

Tearing down an old shed and replacing it with a modern and flexible storage and workspace for Community Support Frankston, had us raising a bit of a sweat, together with plenty of laughs along the way.

The shed project is providing greater capacity to get emergency relief assistance, including healthy foods, to disadvantaged families and individuals in Frankston.

Here's a list of some other recent examples of Rotary Frankston Sunrise working hands-on:

Frankston Special Development School - Construction of an outdoor bike shelter

Mornington Blues Festival - Assisted with car park marshalling

Hire a Rotarian - a working bee of Rotarians "purchased" by one of our generous supporters during a fundraising auction

Baxter Kindergarten - Upgraded the sandpit in the playground

Kananook Community Garden - Building raised garden beds

Delivery Services - with activities curtailed somewhat due to Covid-19, members have been able to support some local charities by providing delivery services:

  • Food deliveries for Community Support Frankston
  • Parcel deliveries for Mums Supporting Families In Need
