Noosa service clubs launch promotional video


A collaboration between Noosa Council and seven community service clubs has resulted in the launch of a promotional video, to raise awareness of their community work.

It’s the first time Rotary and Lions have forged a partnership to jointly celebrate what they do across the Noosa community.

Immediate Past President of Rotary Club of Noosa Daybreak Stewart Wood said the video is a great promotional asset.

“We rarely promote ourselves or the work we do because for our members, it’s simply about making a positive change in our community,

“This video certainly helps capture the Rotary story and should encourage others to join a club.” Mr Wood said.

Sheila Glew from Tewantin-Noosa Lions Club hoped the video would inspire others to step up and become members.

“Fun and fellowship is a big part of every club and we need to encourage particularly younger residents to consider helping the community by joining a local service club,” she said.

Council Community Services officer Kylie Finigan commended the cooperation of the service clubs.

“Rotary and Lions do exceptional work across Noosa and it’s important that we recognise their achievements and celebrate how these volunteers improve the wellbeing of our community,” she said.

Ms Finigan said Council was pleased to work with the clubs to produce such a high quality, informative video.

“We rely on residents in our community to give up their time to help out,

“That was quite evident during last year’s bushfires and we hope that this video will be the catalyst to get more residents to volunteer and help our community service clubs,” Ms Finigan said.

Noosa Council, in conjunction with Channel 7 Sunshine Coast, produced shorter promotional videos for each of the seven clubs to use.

Those involved were: Rotary Club of Noosa Heads, Rotary Club of Noosa Daybreak, Rotary Club of Cooroy, Rotary Club of Noosa, Tewantin-Noosa Lions Club, Noosa Heads Lions Club and Cooroy-Pomona Lions Club.
