Recently, the installation of another Kapiti defibrillator has been completed at the Otaihanga Boating Club.
The coordination of this further milestone has been overseen by Shirley Stratton of the Kapiti Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Otaihanga Boating Club Officials, namely the Commodore Steve Aitken and Secretary Deb Aitken.
On the same date of the unveiling ceremony, the Kapiti Rotary Club held their regular weekly meeting on this occasion at the Boating Club, and incorporated a ‘Bottle Auction’, which raised $2800 for local charities.                                          Photo:  From Left to right; Commodore Steve Aitken; Boating Club Secretary Deb Aitken; Kapiti Rotary Club project organiser Shirley Stratton, and Rotary President Vince Indo.

The prize consists of the trailer, plus two junior bicycles, a TV set, and a large quantity of grocery items. Total value is around $5000, and the surplus proceeds after costs amounting to approximately $8,000 are being distributed to local Kapiti youth charities.

 
Organiser of the raffle, Murray Lobb, a member and past president of Kapiti Rotary, commented that “this has been our most successful raffle to date and we will continue with this project because it carries a great deal of appeal to those who participate, and provides funds for assisting youth projects in Kapiti”.
 
The Jacques family are delighted with their windfall, and pleased that Judy purchased four books of 10 tickets each at the Kapiti Mitre 10 Mega Store,
which has brought much joy to all the family.
