Rotary Interact Group

The Rotary Interact Group at Ōtaki College has been working at full throttle since its inception at the beginning of 2015. The group currently consists of 22 students, led by Ashleigh Stevenson, who are fundraising money for various events.. Students work with the local Ōtaki Rotary Group to raise funds for a wide range of worthy causes.

The students have been working on a project since the start of 2015 to raise funds in order to send a ‘shelter-box’ overseas. The purpose of a shelter-box is to provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters, at a time when they need it the most. The Group is hoping to have contributed at least one shelter-box by the end of 2016 year.

Towards the end of 2015 the Group’s fundraising activities included a highly successful Quiz Night which raised over $1,000 and a number of other activities including mufti days, a movie fundraiser, bake sales and cooking nights.

Their first major project in 2016 was Relay for Life. This provided both the opportunity to raise funds for the Cancer Society and to share their feelings about the effects of this appalling disease with other supporters from around the country.
