The Rotary Club of Norwest Sunrise is a passionate and active group of community minded local business people committed to making a difference.

As well as conducting Rotary business, we get a lot a lot of value from our friendships. There is a great feeling of camaraderie โ€“ we are like one big family! Our members are a healthy mix of both men and women from various industries and professions. All of us still work and are active in the community, so if you have an image that Rotary is made up of elderly, silver haired gentlemen, put it to the back of your mind and let us surprise you!

We love having visitors and showcasing what we do for the local community and overseas, and over the past few months have increased our membership. As a club, we are always looking to make a positive difference both locally and across the globe through fundraising, service and connection with our local community. We have some exciting projects we are working on, so come and visit to learn more and let us know if being involved interests you.

Such amazing women

Rotary International Convention 2023 has been an amazing experience. Sunday was Day 2 and it was a power packed opening which included an incredible talk by Hugh Evans, co-founder of the Oaktree Foundation and Global Citizen which stemmed from a desire to help others at the age of 14. His aim is through concerts and events to promote volunteering youth advocacy to reduce extreme poverty in developing countries. Rotary International President Jennifer Jones comes from a family of Rotarians and has grown up with the ethos of #ServiceAboveSelf. It was an empowering morning finishing with The Tenors ๐ŸŒŸ ...

What a fantastic cheese and wine evening last night in the beautiful Rotary Downunder office at Norwest.
Thank you to everyone who attended the wine night and a HUGE thank you to Robert Bruno whose grandfather Frank established Toorak Winery in Leeton in 1965.
There were 9 great wines to taste and buy and judging by the number of boxes disappearing through the door they were well-received.
Thanks to Mitch for organising Robert and wines and to Azita whose dream it was for a cheese and wine fundraiser, to Robert who organised many things, including the wine trivia and to our amazing MC Jeremy.
Our sold out event looks to have raised over $4,000 which will be used to support a project in India run by our twin club, the Rotary Club of Bangalore Kuramangala which is helping young women reintegrate back into their community.
The event also supported a Castle Hill based social enterprise Dinner on the Table which provides free meals to families living with a disability.
The new Rotary headquarters in Norwest is a fabulous space and it was great to see members from 5 other Rotary clubs in the room and so many community leaders.
A great way to connect and fundraise.
