The Rotary Clubs of the Illawarra have, for three years, been supporting children from 0-5 years with a book in the mail each month from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
The Imagination Library Illawarra project improves early childhood literacy by giving disadvantaged children a free, high-quality, age-appropriate book each month from birth to age 5.
The books help children develop the language and social skills needed so they start school confident and ready to read.
Your support will help keep this programme running.
The majority of the children receiving these books live in Warrawong, Berkeley, Lake Heights, Cringila and Bellambi.
These books have been provided through funds from the Rotary Clubs and a range of grants.
A film night is being held to raise funds to continue this opportunity for these children.
Members of the community are invited to attend the film night held at the Gala Theatre, King Street, Warrawong on Friday, August 18.
It starts at 6 30pm for finger food and a glass of champagne or orange juice on arrival. The cost is $20 per person
The movie is “Hampstead”. It features an American widow living in the London suburb of Hampstead and a man who lives on the Heath who form an unlikely alliance against unscrupulous property developers in the neighbourhood.
The movie stars Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson.
Book by August 14, by phoning or email to Gerri 0427 002 744, email@example.com or Sue on 0402 818 075.
