The second home of Ian Hovey & Ross Conley

This Week



Very Special Kids was set up to support children mainly under 15 with terminal illnesses. This is a free of charge service run through a hospice service in Malvern.
The service supports around 900 families a year with psychosocial support for the whole family as well as 24 hour respite services.
Very Special Kids has 100 staff & 1,000 volunteers. They require $9 million a year to provide services, but only receive 22% from the government. The remainder is fundraised.
VSK has a project underway to demolish & rebuild the hospice in Malvern, at a cost of $15 million.
South Sudanese Living in Wyndham Group
We had a presentation from Apanda, Rachael & Moses from the South Sudenese Group, with a proposal to our club to assist the group with the Sinna Mentor Program.
The program is to help young sudenese youth to define their purpose in life, and to encourage interaction with the community.
The program addresseses the high drop-out rates from schools, and to use providers such as Rotary to assist the integration.
Events to put in your calendar
  1. Rotary Foundation Dinner at Kooyong Wed 13.11.2019 at 7.00pm. The guest speaker is past RI Pres Ravi Ravindran. Ian Knight will be going for sure if you would like to join him.



The Rotary Club of Central Melbourne is holding its 27th annual Rotary Foundation Paul Harris Breakfast on Thursday 21st November 2019 at the RACV City Club. 

The guest speaker will be Dr Andrew Browning who has spent 17 years living with his family in Ethiopia amongst some of the poorest people in the world.

He specialises in treating a devastating birth injury called obstetric fistula.

Andrew is one of only a handful of surgeons in the world who have dedicated their lives to helping treat this problem. His charity has now built 3 maternity hospitals in Africa.

Tickets for the breakfast are $70 per person or $650 for a table of 10.

Alphabet Racing
Galloping Gail has hit the wall after being 12 lengths ahead a short time ago. But here come the challengers! Frisky Fava has stormed into second place after a great burst of speed on Cox Plate Day and is now only one length behind. And Filthy Phil has sprinted 4 wide to settle into 3rd place. It seems like the jockey said a few choice words to his horse which has had the desired effect.

Cool Rockin Daddy has dropped back a bit. His earlier bout of gout is now having an impact on his performance. Mad Dog Muir and Super Sandlant are just a neck away and travelling consistently.

Other horses who have finally woken up and are moving up steadily include Groper, Blocked Pipes Pante, Ballantino and Garfield the Cat. And Smokin' Joe has woken up and has finally decided to leave the barrier.

Some of the horses who are running backwards include Killer Conley, Big Buns Burt, Frothy Joffa and Leg Over Hovey.

Slow Moving Smith is living up to his name and has now dropped back into last place and is 27 lengths behind the leader.
