"The Club is looking forward to working with the 11 organisations on rolling out this fantastic initiative" said WRC Operations Manager Kate Lindsey.

"It was a humbling experience hearing about the diverse range of organisations and their strong impact they all have on our community, and a great opportunity for peer to peer networking"

It opened our eyes to the wonderful things these organisations are doing with the young people in our community, and we feel very fortunate we were able to bring them together".

The club has also committed to continuing to roll this program out annually.
