As part of the Yarra Bank Reserve playground project led by the club to mark the anniversary in 2021 of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand, the Rotary Club of Glenferrie has launched a Vocational Service fundraiser featuring innovative walking sticks designed by entrepreneur and past member of The Rotary Club of Moorabbin Walter Glaser
The innovative walking sticks have a number of features which distinguish them from lesser products, most notably a built-in torch. The ‘Telescopic’ version has a shock absorber in the foot, to help prevent jarring of the shoulder.
The LightWalker walking sticks come in two models, the LightWalker Telescopic and the LightWalker Folding – the latter is ideal for travelling. The sticks will be made available through Probus clubs and to Rotarians at substantially reduced prices.
The project team Richard Blakeman, Mark Howlett, Ian Salek and Gary Stoneham welcome any help offered when it comes time to pack and ship orders, which will be done at the Donations in Kind Warehouse.
Money raised will help fund the Rotary themed interactive sculpture that will be part of the all-abilities playground being constructed at Yarra Bank Reserve with Rotary engagement to mark 100 Years of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand in 2021.
