    Dear President Andy Soper,

    This is Suren Poruri, District Chairman - Global Grants, RI District 3150, from India.

    Your Rotary Club of Hutt City was chartered on 21 June 1943.  Your club completed 81 years’ service today, serving communities across the world.

    I would like to extend my warm wishes to you and to all your club members on this joyous moment.

    Rotary is the only organization which has a global foot print and is working towards happy communities across the world with its noble initiatives.  Thanks to our Rotary founder Paul Harris, we are able to make a difference in the communities where we live.

    Rotary clubs across the world execute service projects worth 2 billion dollars every year in their communities.  Rotarians gives 25 million volunteer hours to their communities across the world every year. 

    Thanks and regards.  Suren Poruri

    Hutt City Rotarians were busy on 23-24 February, collecting donations for the Heart Foundation annual street appeal. The collection was well supported by shoppers and the total raised exceeded expectations. 
     
     
     
     
    Rotary Hutt City continues to experience significant membership growth, particularly through the club's corporate membership programme, Rotabiz. At our meeting on 7 February, we welcomed Hana Tuisano, and Michael Markham (representing corporate member, PKF Kendons).

    As we look back on 2023, there have been many great moments, from the launch of the Ngauranga - Petone section of the Great Harbour Way, the ongoing care and improvement of plantings along the Hutt River Trail, supporting the Walk for Mental Health, toasting marshmallows at Matariki, helping Nourish to supply food hampers to families at Christmas, and culminating in the collection of presents for local children through the Tree of Joy.
     
    Meanwhile, we have supported the continued success of Innovative Young Minds, provided cash grants to local charities, and helped young people to develop leadership skills. 
     
    Through all this, we have enjoyed one another's company while growing our membership. The future is bright.
     

    Rotary Hutt City (RHC) has launched an innovative form of relationship for businesses and other organizations, known as ROTABIZ. This initiative aims to bring together RHC, one of 46,000 + Rotary clubs worldwide working to bring about change in our communities, and organizations looking for ways that they and their staff can participate in doing good in Hutt City.
     
     
    At a recent ROTABIZ event, a founding corporate member described its motivation for participation in the following terms:
     
    "We had found it a challenge to identify worthwhile projects that made a real difference in our community. Rotary is a footprint to many effective projects.
     
    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just a buzz word. Now more than any other time, it is likely that a strategy for CSR is a requirement when tendering on larger contractual work. A ROTABIZ - Business for good - membership provides access to all of Rotary projects and offers community engagement in a fun and informal way, staff development through their involvement in projects and promises business relationships that potentially improve “the bottom line”.
     
    There is nothing like a bunch of like minded companies - a coalition of the willing- getting together to improve our community and at the same time creating business opportunities between us.
     
    The ROTABIZ website (https://rotabiz.nz/) for Corporate members allows users to communicate in real time. It's also great for reporting on new business opportunities which benefit other ROTABIZ members.
     
    Lastly, there are personal development opportunities which Rotary offers our young leaders through youth development programs." 
     
     
    We were pleased to partner with Farrah's Breads of Upper Hutt to support the work of the Nourish Trust, a local charity that provides food hampers to families across the Wellington Region for Christmas. The Farrah's team hosted a large group of Hutt City Rotarians, partners and supporters for a tour of their state of the art wraps and pizza base-making facility and supplied breakfast to follow. 
     
    This collaboration involving Rotary, local businesses and a local charity is yet another example of the benefits of our strategy of linking up businesses and charities to support families in our community.
