Shelterbox Trek for Shelter 2021
 
We are excited to announce Trek for Shelter and our goal to raise $250,000
Trek the legendary Larapinta Trail in the Australian Outback, the dense rainforest of Cradle Mountain, the spectacular coastlines in Western Australia or challenge yourself with the Kokoda trail. Join one of these epic adventures and raise funds for ShelterBox Australia to assist families in crisis.
 
Our goal is to raise a quarter of a million dollars across our five adventures. This amount of money will provide 1,000 families with a ShelterKit (including tarps, tools and fixings) plus solar lights, a water filter and mosquito nets. Life-changing, life-saving aid, essential for disaster-affected communities to start their own recovery. We’re asking you to help us continue our efforts by joining one of our Trek for Shelter adventures today!

Chinese New Year
 
The Rotary Club of Ascot holds an annual major fund raising project, Bricktober, where funds raised go towards the support of programs for young children and other Rotary and community projects.  Bricktober is a fun event that showcases models built from LEGO® by fans of the brick in Perth WA. This year it is again being held at Curtin Stadium, Kent Street, Bentley on 9-10 October 2021.
 
At just $36 for a family pass this offers exceptional value for money for families looking for something different to entertain their children and with the amazing displays built from LEGO®, building competitions, an interactive zone and exclusive merchandise, Bricktober is a must visit these next school holidays. Tickets available at the beginning of September and can be accessed on our website:  http://www.bricktober.info/
We are also looking for enthusiastic, energetic and friendly volunteers to assist in the general running of our Bricktober event and as you would appreciate volunteers are integral in the smooth running of any event and the hours they put in are priceless.
 
Applications to volunteer this year are open and feel free to forward details to your family and friends. You can access the application form by following the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BricktoberVolunteers2021
 
Any queries you can contact Ann at friendsofbricktober@outlook.com

Rotary & INTERPLAST
A good News Story
 
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Interplast and its volunteers across Australia & New Zealand continue to provide life-changing care to patients. Interplast is providing virtual training and remote mentoring to surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, and allied health professionals in 24 developing nations.
 
With the support of Interplast and Rotary, doctors like Bhutanese Sonam Jamtsho continue to receive necessary training and mentorship, which enables him to continue changing the lives of Bhutanese patients in desperate need.
 
Motivated by a desire to make an impact, Dr Sonam credits his mentor, Australian plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr Tim Proudman, for pursuing a path as a surgeon.
 
I had the opportunity and honour to work with Tim since 2015. One of the reasons I was so interested in plastic and reconstructive surgery is because of the work that I have seen the Interplast team do and how much change he has brought to the Bhutanese population,” Dr Sonam explains.
 
While Covid-19 has limited Dr Proudman from travelling to Bhutan, and Dr Sonams scope for clinical training, it has nonetheless provided an opportunity for collaboration and learning. Enabled by his relationship with Dr Proudman - Interplasts country coordinator for Bhutan – the junior and his mentor have met online more than 60 times since March 2020. He has been very instrumental despite the pandemic causing obstruction to my training, I have been receiving the training from his side continuously. He has done more than he has been required to,” Dr Sonam says.
 
 
Motivated by altruism and a passion to see reconstructive surgery skills spread where they are needed”, Dr Proudman spends hours late at night with Dr Sonam, assisting him to hone his knowledge.
 
Mindful of the time and experience necessary to complete a plastic and reconstructive surgery training program, Dr Proudman is currently working to enable Dr Sonam to travel to Australia, to continue training under his capable guidance, and further their shared dream of providing life-changing surgery to those who need it most.
