On 29 May, Fremantle Rotary and Rotary Club of Attadale made an incredibly generous gift of $23,577 to Spinnaker following another successful corporate golf day event. Volunteers from both clubs work tirelessly to organise and host the event, participation in which is oversubscribed each year. We thank everyone who was involved in the event which took place on 8 March at the Royal Fremantle Golf Club, and also to the generous sponsors and those who participated on the day. We are so grateful to have the support of the Fremantle and Attadale Rotary Clubs who fund an entire research grant every year. Thank you for continuing to support the mission of Spinnaker. Until next year. ... See more
