Rotary Club of Ballarat West special donation to Sailability

The weekly dinner for the Rotary Club of Ballarat West was made that extra bit special on Tuesday with a presentation to the Ballarat Yacht Club.

Speaking on behalf of the yacht club, Eric Johnston, said the club was grateful for the donation from Rotary, which helped them purchase a new boat for their Sailability program.

“This was initially funded by Ballarat West Rotary Club and the Federal Government matched our funding, dollar for dollar, so we were able to purchase this boat almost debt free – the club only had to put in a couple of hundred dollars,” Mr Johnston said.
“It will be used by the Sailability groups of which we have 4-5. Sailability is for people of all abilities, whether they are physical or financial.”
