DMS clocks up more than a quarter of a million in charity!
We are delighted to tell you that the 2019 Motor Show raised more than $50,000. Our chosen charities for this event were:
- Food Plants Solutions
- Rotary Health
- Action against homelessness
This takes the total amount raised in the show’s 13 year history to more than $250,000.
Our members have been out presenting cheques during the past month.
Rotary club of Devonport North President Ian MacLeod said it was a great feeling to see the cheques handed over.
“A huge amount of time, planning and organisation goes into each of our shows…we want to provide a highly entertaining event which appeals to people of all ages, but we never lose sight of the reason we do it – to raise money for organisations who make a tangible difference to the lives of those less fortunate than us,” Ian said.
Key work of our charities:
Food Plant Solutions is an international project which tackles malnutrition by creating education programs to teach people to understand the connection between plants and nutrition.
Our donation to Rotary Health has gone towards ongoing research, awareness raising and education about mental health.
