Bill Riley mentioned this week during his Sergeant’s session that he had found some articles in the Rotary Downunder which mentioned work that Rotary Havelock North had been involved with. This includes the Te Mata Peak guard duties which was a significant fundraiser for our club. He also mentioned that the Cycle Race in Taupo raises $100,000 per year in funds, here is an article about this it is owned and run by the Rotary Club of Lake Taupo and involves over 800 volunteers over the weekend. Over $1.9 million has been distributed to community and charitable groups from Cycle Challenge proceeds over the past 18 years. According to research, Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge injects an estimated $5.2 million into the Taupo economy every year. Let’s think about how we could be involved in something like this in Hawkes Bay.
