Many charitable organisations are taking a financial hit from the Covid-19 disruptions to their normal fundraising. This comes when their services are in greater need as ever. The Rotary Club of Dunedin is making an immediate contribution of $2,000 from the Club Trust to each of the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and PSO foodbanks and the Otago Hospice. This contribution has been received gratefully, from the Salvation Army for instance: "We really appreciate this. The amount of food parcels we are giving out is steadily growing. Please pass on our thanks to the members of the Rotary Club of Dunedin."
