Warrnambool Rotary Clubs thank our workforce

Tuesday, 29 Mar 2022

The combined Rotary Clubs of Warrnambool have today donated $6,000 of coffee cards to our workforce to recognise the incredible work we’ve done during the pandemic. SWH has matched this generous gift to ensure every one of our staff across all our campuses (Warrnambool, Camperdown, Lismore, Macarthur, Portland and Hamilton) feels the love. 

CEO Craig Fraser says this act of kindness by the four Rotary Clubs is both touching and appreciated. ‘So many of our team have given up holidays and leave to ensure that our health service could always respond to the pandemic whenever our community needed us, and we know that this has come at great personal sacrifice and cost. This meaningful gesture reminds us that our community, in return, really cares about what we do, and that we are all here to support each other,’ he says.

Staff have many choices as to what coffee spot they can use their card at, including the beachfront Pavilion Café & Bar where several of them met with key Rotarians this afternoon to announce this initiative.
