Buying a cappuccino at the monthly Drouin Rotary Club produce and craft market may not be a major expenditure for most people, but every cup sold is supporting education in COUNTRY through the Bryn’s School project.
The project was initiated by south Gippsland based George Hendry in 2003 following the death of a 16 year old son of a family member, with the purpose of “giving hope through education.”
At the July market, George Hendry received a cheque for $3500.00 towards the Bryn’s School Project. The funds have been raised from coffee sales at the stall operated by Joann Copping, assisted by other Rotary wives, and supported by Warragul business The Bean Scene, which donates cups and coffee beans.
The aim of the Bryn’s School project is to provide educational opportunities to some of the world’s most under-privileged children and has supported schools in South Sudan, Vietnam, Sierra Leone, Cambodia and Kenya.
The Rotary Club of Drouin has been a regular supporter of these projects.
