Nepal Community Development Project
The Rotary Club of Orange Daybreak is proud to have been involved with a community development project in Nepal with the Swoyambhu Rotary Club in Nepal (District 3292), along with Rotary Clubs in the Central West of NSW (District 9700), and with local businesses and corporate organisations.
For more than 12 years RCOD has supported the Orange and District Early Education Project (ODEEP) by fundraising at Balls, a Funtastic Christmas Party, and raffling annual Harley Davidson motorbikes. Over $500 000 has been raised for ODEEP.
Western Care Lodge
RCOD has a long association with the Western Care Lodge. The lodge acts as a home-away-from-home for people as they undergo treatment for cancer in Orange. Members cook a meal once a month, and travel in the Crusin'-Along Rally, which has raised significant funds over many years.
Orange Farmers Market
Orange Farmers Market is a community-based activity with over 60 stallholders in the one location! Come and see what the region has on offer, meet the producers and support local growers. RCOD sets up the markets on the second Saturday of each month and mans the gates. The gold coin donation collected there is given to local projects.
