The Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo is very fortunate to have a community Opp Shop to raise funds for its important charitable projects locally, nationally and internationally.
Our Club employs a manager, Pauline, to oversee and coordinate the day to day running of the retail Opp Shop store. Pauline is a wonderful asset to our club and without her services we would not be able to achieve many of the financial goals we have for fundraising for our projects. Many Rotarians that volunteer their time support Pauline in the managing and running of the Opp Shop, as do other members of our community.
Donations to the Rotary Opp Shop can be made and are welcomed. Monies raised from the sale of goods are put toward Rotary projects and without this valuable asset we would struggle to deliver the many and significant projects that we do.
The Rotary Opp Shop is more than a business; it is a community asset. Over and above the value it adds to our projects it supports members in our community that may find themselves in dire need due to circumstances beyond their control. We work with the emergency services on Phillip Island and provide goods to assist desperate members of the community get back on their feet after a traumatic event such as a fire, flood, or other event beyond their control.
We are proud to be able to help our community in many ways and the Opp Shop is one of our great assets to enable this.
We are always in need of volunteers to support this important asset so if you would like to make a difference and support the Rotary community please contact us or visit the Opp Shop in Thompson Avenue, Cowes and speak directly with Pauline. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
The Opp Shop is open Monday to Friday 10 am – 3.30pm and on Saturday from 9am to 12 noon.
