Rotarians stand against domestic violence

Mount Gambier’s Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre will host the Rotary District 9780 Conference this weekend.

Rotarians from Millicent to Bordertown to Swan Hill to Queenscliff and all points in between will descend on Mount Gambier for a weekend of engagement, information, activities and a showcase of Rotary programs and activities.

The conference, hosted by District Governor Ian McKay and the Rotary Clubs of Mount Gambier Lakes, Mount Gambier and Mount Gambier West, has assembled a talented collect of imminent speakers, on a wide range of social challenges, including the focus project of “Say No to Family Violence”.

Adopted as the theme for Zone 8 (Australia, New Zealand and Pacific) Rotary Clubs in 2023-24, ‘Say No to Family and Domestic Violence’, is a feature of the conference presentations.

Headlining this community health focus is Kirrily Dear, the co-founder of Run Against Violence and solo fundraiser of a run from Broken Hill to Sydney.

In addition, Nic Newling, an outspoken advocate for mental health and suicide prevention, will address ‘Let’ talk about Mental Health’.

Both speakers have lived experiences and are dedicated to making a difference in this area of community health.

Rotary Club of Portland past president and District Champion Caroline Millard will inform and outline opportunities for community engagement of Say No to Family and Domestic Violence projects.

These presentations are available as an open community forum on Saturday from 1.45pm to 4.30pm.
