Since its inception, the Wanneroo Club has punched above its weight in terms of fundraising, it continues to do so.  Rotary Park and the Heritage Wall in the Wanneroo Townsite; the Dolphin Wishing Well at Hillarys Marina are two very visible reminders of this Club’s efforts. Many schools in the Wanneroo region have and continue to receive funding from this, small in number but huge in fundraising and generosity, club.
In addition to funding local and State projects, Wanneroo Rotary has funded many projects in our near international region.  In January 2019, 240 children’s wheelchairs plus, plus, plus were shipped to the Thai/Burma border, ensuring a better life for those youngsters who cannot walk.
Wanneroo Rotary Park located in Scenic Drive, Wanneroo, has a plaque, set in a lime stone boulder that says "Rotary Park, opened by Charles Searson JP., President Wanneroo Shire. This Park was developed by the Rotary Club of Wanneroo in co-operation with the Shire of Wanneroo. 10th November  1979.   In September 2001 the Rotary Heritage Wall at the park was officially dedicated.  The story of the wall appears in a link to the right of the front page of this website
Debbie Singh, International Director of Wanneroo Rotary Club records that, bright and early on 7 August, Wheelchairs For Kids and Rotary Club Of Wanneroo loaded yet another container heading to Thailand.  We are blessed by an amazing partnership with Burma Childrens Medical Fund and Mike Ellis’s Allied Pickford’s Team in Bangkok.
The 166 Wheelchairs loaded will change children’s lives forever allowing them to attend school and be more independent.
Grateful thanks to Brother Ollie, Don and all the selfless volunteers at Wheelchairs for Kids. Thanks also go to Rotary Club of Wanneroo President Terry Ambler and Peter Miskelly who put their shoulders to the wheel to help load the container.
