Active in our Community
Heretaunga Rotary supports a number of local charities and projects. Many organisations have benefitted from financial donations while others receive more tangible assistance. Below are some of the recent activities we have been involved in.
The Club has initiated the hanging baskets beautification project at the Silverstream shops and planting of flower beds in this area.
We have provided support for local Plunket houses in Upper Hutt, Trentham and Akatawara Road. This has involved interior and exterior maintenance as required in the different facilities.
Te Omanga Hospice
The club has provided financial support as well as some assistance with maintenance of one building.
Riding for the Disabled
The club has purchased new horse covers for the horses at the Riding for Disabled facility in Silverstream. This organisation provides the opportunity for children with a disability to experience horse riding.
The club has supported the Upper Hutt foodbank for many years, built planter boxes at Pinehaven School, bought a defribilator for the YMCA gym in Trentham, provided ongoing support for the Teen Parent School, donated funds to Expressions for its exhibits and provided support for the Upper Hutt girls home.
