From President David


We are all horrified by last Friday's attack.  At last night's board meeting we decided that we would facilitate fund raising as a club by setting up a charitable trust bank account so that members can donate directly to that.  We are hopeful that NRCF (Newmarket Rotary Charitable Foundation) will provide additional funds (possibly a matching amount).  We will then discuss with the Christchurch Rotary clubs how those funds can be best utilised - anticipating that long term support will be needed following any initial distribution of funds.


You will have already received a request for donations from our DG Ingrid Waugh and to those who have already donated a big thank you.


If you have not yet donated please consider donating through the club's charitable trust.  The advantage of doing so is that you will receive a donation receipt to claim a tax rebate and additionally the amount is likely to be supplemented by related trusts/foundation.   We are aiming for a target of $10,000, which if matched by NRCF would build the total to $20,000, a significant sum. 


The bank account to donate funds to is:

RCONCT - Project Account 12-3252-0042374-02


I hope that you will see fit to donate generously.

He has worked in Kaitaia Hospital in the North to Southland Hospital and the Sub Antarctic Islands as a doctor. He has worked in Tologa Bay, Chatham Islands, Papamoa in the east to Raglan, Taranaki and Greymouth in the west. He has hosted his own TV and Radio shows, written two internationally best-selling books and been a professional speaker to the likes of Google, Microsoft and Hilton for the last 10 years.
  • Dr Harold Hilman -After working in his early years as a clinical psychologist, Dr Hilman developed a passion for leadership development while teaching at the United States Air Force Academy.  His professional journey since then has led him down the path where he is actively exploring the domain of authentic leadership.  His two books have focused on what it means to lead others through authentic connections.  
  • Mike Williams - Mike is a former president of the Labour party and regularly appears on current affairs television in New Zealand.  Mike is chief executive of the Howard League whose programmes and objectives are aimed at reducing the prison population, reducing recidivism rates and helping reintegration of former prisoners into communities.

In 2012 he was made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to psychology.  He’s written eight books which have now been published in 19 countries and 10 languages.  His television career has spanned almost a decade and he’s presented a number of series including Beyond the Darklands, The Politically Incorrect Parenting Show, On Thin Ice: Nigel Latta in Antarctica, and The Hard Stuff.
