Over the next few months, the Rotary Geelong West Team has will be sorting through books from all genres, which will be available at incredible prices. In August 2022, we received over 2,500 guests to the event and raised close to $30,000 for various charities - this is one of the best results recorded! Each of our Book Fair contributions make up the major fundraising event for the Rotary Club of Geelong West, which so far has raised over $150,000 that has been channelled back through our Rotary Club’s supported projects such as Barwon Health Patient Transport, Samaritan House, Operation Newstart, Christ Church Meals Program, Barwon Valley School and Geelong Youth Engagement, not to mention all of the many smaller charitable programs that have been assisted by Rotary Club grants each year.

Self Care Sunday Geelong Stair Race Report

Posted on Oct 31, 2018
In inaugural Self Care Sunday Stair Climb took place on 28 October 2018 in Geelong. SCA’s Jason Williams car pooled with Maria Pia Piemontese to travel over from Melbourne to take part.

We were so excited to find out only a few weeks ago that there was a stair race happening in Geelong. The local Rotary Club saw the new WorkSafe building being constructed and thought it would be a great idea to have a race up it as a fundraiser.  Jump ahead a few months and the event had grown into Self Care Sunday with the stair race one part of a larger event.
