Did you know that Funnel Web Spider anti-venin originated in the Northern Illawarra?
Founded in September of 1948, The Rotary Club of Bulli and Northern Illawarra has a long and proud history of helping people locally, nationally, and internationally.
“We’ve done quite a lot over the last 65 years including raising money for Bulli Hospital, as well as Wollongong, Port Kembla and Coledale Hospitals.”, said Mitchell Gordon, Public Relations Director at Bulli and Northern Illawarra Rotary Club, “We were also responsible for building Akira Lodge which provides accommodation for cancer and renal patients, close to Wollongong Hospital.”
In 1987-88, the club designed, supplied and constructed the new lookout at Bulli Tops. More recent projects include the purchasing of a Food-Delivery van for The Denny Foundation for Street Kids, monthly sing-a-longs for elderly local people, and providing furniture Kenya’s only deaf school.
