$75K donation for Community House

With Cambridge Community House (CCH) manager Joanne Turner unable to attend due to illness, CCH trustee Don Harris accepted the $75,000 cheque from David Cooney on behalf of the Cambridge Community Charitable Trust.

The Rotary Club of Cambridge Community Trust recently made a generous donation of $75,000 to Cambridge Community House to assist with the development of their new counselling building.

Both Rotary and the Community Trust have recognised over a long period of time the value that the Community House brings to the community, and wanted to assist wherever possible with the development of the much-needed facility.

On behalf of the Community Trust, David Cooney acknowledged the great work that Community House does for the local community.

With demand for their services is growing rapidly, the development of the new facility will allow greater access and a larger and safer environment for Community House staff to work.

The donation was the last to be made from the Rotary Community Trust as it has recently changed its name to Cambridge Community Charitable Trust, to better reflect the trust’s objectives to meet the needs of the Cambridge community.
