Rotary Inner Melbourne Emergency Relief Network (RIMERN) needs a VAN, so what better way to raise funds amongst Rotarians and friends than to launch their own wine range, three VAN ROUGE & three VAN BLANC!
Great value, quality Australian wines with their own distinctive RIMERN label are now available for online order, delivered to your door anywhere in Australia except Northern Territory.
Since June 2021 RIMERN, the multi club project of Rotary Prahran, Albert Park, North Melbourne, Carlton, Balwyn, North Balwyn, Camberwell, Canterbury, Chadstone/East Malvern, Flemington/Kensington, Pascoe Value, Central Melbourne, Melbourne and Glenferrie (with more Clubs to join in 2022!) has been collecting donated furniture, appliances and homewares and supplying them to clients of their member welfare agencies who are setting up their secure homes.
Until now Camberwell Rotarian Phil Young has been donating his time & his truck, ably assisted by David Troon from Rotary Camberwell, to collect the major donations, and their efforts have been both amazing & vital in keeping the warehouse well stocked.
The donations that RIMERN is missing are the ones coming from social media contacts and referrals that need the items picked up fast, so now RIMERN really needs its own van to move quickly, during the week, to pounce on treasures that they currently miss.
Please order some of their RIMERN wines, share this link with your friends & family & instead of supporting your local retail chain this month, why not support this far reaching Rotary project that has already supplied whole house lots of furniture & household essentials  to people coming out of homelessness or jail, escaping domestic violence, refugees and many more people who are just doing it tough.
When you order, scroll down to nominate one of the member Rotary Clubs, they’re tracking their fundraising by Club to support an application for a District Matching Grant!
Every bottle sold will help towards buying a van & every van load of donated goods will help a struggling local person or family set up their home. Want to follow RIMERN more closely? Follow them on facebook
PS.  A Rotary branded bottle of Australian wine is the ideal thank you for your Club’s guest speakers, maybe order a dozen for the Club too?
