Rotary is a networking organization that recently demonstrated its commitment to community service. Some of its members identified a need at the newly opened Canterbury Westland Cancer Support Centre in Langdons Road, Papanui. The centre which opened in October last year provides 50 rooms of accommodation for patients undergoing cancer treatment as well as support facilities. However, the Centre lacked artwork on its walls, which could help create a welcoming atmosphere for the patients.The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside, which previously ran successful Artarama art shows, reached out to its network of local artists. These artists were asked if they were willing to donate art pieces to the Cancer Support Centre. Thanks to their generosity, over 30 pieces of artwork were delivered to the centre just before Christmas.The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside thanks all the artists who contributed to this worthy cause. Many of these artists will showcase and sell their artworks at the Rotary ARTarama 2024, which is scheduled to take place in October later this year. ... See MoreSee Less
