Different ways to promote your club & Rotary

The Rotary Club of Hornby should be commended for looking outside the box on how to promote themselves & Rotary in general. This is their Display Cabinet that can be seen in their local Mall, "Hornby HUB".

Many clubs are now approaching their local malls to promote themselves. Great way of engaging with the public & telling our story.

Keep the date free - Red Nose Day 22nd August

About Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day was established in New Zealand in 1989, back when Cure Kids was known as the Child Health Research Foundation.

It was an amazing national endeavour, and thanks to the incredible fundraising efforts of everyday Kiwis, researchers led by Professor Ed Mitchell — one of Cure Kids professorial research chairs — pioneered the “back to sleep” technique that is now the global standard for dramatically reducing the number of babies lost to cot death.

Today, Red Nose Day for Cure Kids has an even bigger goal, to keep funding research into the illnesses and conditions that affect the lives of Kiwi kids.

Everyday New Zealanders — people just like you — opened their hearts and have helped improve or prolong the lives of many Kiwi kids while we go for the ultimate goal: the cure.

This year, Red Nose Day promises to be the biggest yet!
More details to follow on how you can help out this amazing cause.
