Steph Cooke and members of the Coolamon Rotary Club stand in a large shed next to a bright yellow and blue food van.

The Coolamon Rotary Club has a new space to store fundraising equipment thanks to the NSW Government.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has handed over the keys to a new storage shed which will house the club’s catering van, built with a $27,670 grant from the Community Building Partnership program.

Ms Cooke said the new infrastructure will help the club continue its important work.

“This storage shed is housing the amazing food van the club has had refurbished, which plays a major role in their fundraising,” Ms Cooke said.

“Rotary’s motto is Service Above Self, which is something they live every day, going above and beyond for their communities both here and overseas.”

“I am extremely proud the NSW Government has delivered this support which is helping to make the Coolamon community even stronger.”

Secretary of the Coolamon Rotary Club and past District Governor John Glassford said the project meant Rotary could continue their vital community work.

“We are very happy and very appreciative of the effort Steph puts in to it. We couldn’t be happier,” Mr Glassford said.

“This shed means we have somewhere to store our beautiful caravan which we had refurbished and all our gear including BBQs. This is about looking after our equipment so we can fundraise for our community.”

“Rotary is the heart of fundraising in the Coolamon Shire.”
