Wanted: Volunteers at Hanover

Rotary Club of Southbank has for many years provided volunteers to assist the residents of Hanover Welfare Services at their South Melbourne Centre by cooking up a BBQ every Friday night on a rotating roster basis.  If you are enthusiastic about helping out your local community, this is a great way to meet and talk to people challenged to improve their life situation.  More volunteers makes the work much more enjoyable and means and we can all share the work around.  For further information, please contact us or learn more about Hanover.
