$1 Million Dollars Raised For The Community


November 19th saw us celebrate an incredible acheivement, through our Op shop we have raised $1 million dollars to fund local and international projects over the last 21 years.

The lunch held at Box Hill Golf Club was an excellent opportunity for us to come together to celebrate an incredible achievement that has made and continues to make an enormous difference in our community.

A thank you must go to our volunteers, whose time and effort to support our club and our causes has assisted in achieving this incredible goal.  Your contributions have made a significant impact, and we are grateful for your dedication and hard work.

We also want to take a moment to recognize the incredible work of our Op Shop Board under the capable management of our Director of 21 years, Clem Joyce. Clem was presented with a special plaque acknowledging his work by District Governor of 9810 - Ian Ballantine.

The selflessness and commitment of our volunteers has been instrumental in helping us achieve this goal, without their help we could not have supported so many in our community. Monies raised has allowed us to make an impact on the lives of thousands over the last 21 years, we couldn’t have done it without our many volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer contact us and join our team.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those we serve and create a better world for all.

Bizzi Kidz Environmental Care Pack

The last few years have been tough for all but especially for our youngest members of society, they have missed out on the most important formative educational and social start to life. Rotary Box Hill Burwood saw an opportunity to put a smile on the faces of children in Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 at some of our local primary schools who had missed out but also an opportunity to encourage them to care for our planet and so we created the Bizzi Kidz Environmental Care Pack which was distributed to over 350 primary school children. 2023 has seen the second distribution of our Bizzi Kidz Pack to over 200 children at the St Francis Xavier more
