The Rotary Club of Onehunga – One Tree Hill members, haven’t let COVID-19 get in its their way assisting with this year’s Child Cancer Foundation appeal.


The club has supported the street appeal for a number of years and last March collected over $1,800 from the good folk outside Countdown Onehunga.


This year when members heard COVID-19 was preventing the usual bucket collection, they decided to donate $300 and help out further by posting 7,000 Child Cancer Foundation flyers into local letterboxes. The flyers contain details on how to donate $3 by texting CHILD to 3457 (or to donate more visit
