Club Stories
 
 
The Rotary Club of Scarborough has been working closely with Professor Andrew Whitehouse to create a greater awareness of autism in the community by holding an annual Autism Awareness Day function which seeks to bring together the research , scientific and medical specialists and those families living with autism , in a forum designed to assist families and give a greater understanding of autism .
 
The Rotary Club of Scarborough donated $5,000 in March 2017 to support 25 Indigenous children and young people across WA to participate in a program aiming to improve their reading ability. The funds were donated to Indigenous Reading Project, an Australian charity who will provide the children with iPads and access to a support program. The charity  has demonstrated measurable improvements in the reading ability of former participants in Australia, and helps to boost confidence and self esteem.
 
Wheelchairs For Kids
 
Olly Pickett , the Workshop Manager from the Rotary Club of Scarborough , Wheelchairs for Kids organisation , recently took a wheelchair down to the Saint Bernards School in Kojonup , to highlight and explain the WFKs project and to help raise funds to build more wheelchairs. The school has only 70 children in the various classes from kindergarten to grade 6.  Prior to Olly’s visit , the 70 kids had asked family and townspeople to sponsor them for so many laps around the school oval …. the kids had half an hour to do as many laps as they could. In that ½ hour they raised just over $2,700 ….. a marvellous effort and that will enable WFKs to manufacture another 13 wheelchairs.  Olly and his like minded volunteers at WFKs are constantly looking to raise funds to assist disabled children throughout the world get out of the dirt , get onto a wheelchair and have their lives changed with the use of one of our wheelchairs . For most of these disabled children , life lacks hope . No schooling . No Education . No chance of ever gaining a job .   Disabled children are battling with no medical facilities and no Government care . Children who can only sit in the dirt all day , every day.  
With the wheelchair , kids are able to go to school , get an education and become less reliant on Mum to carry them on their backs wherever they go ….. the wheel chair is life changing for the child and the family. The wheelchairs are manufactured in Wangara using all volunteer labour …. everyone working at WFKs is a volunteer .
