Generous Donation Ensures Jumbo Tennis Will Continue

With the end of an era coming about in local Rotary following the Toowoomba West Rotary Club handing in their Charter and ceasing existence after 50 years of service to the community, the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation has gratefully accepted the donation of 24 Jumbo Tennis racquets to use for fundraising for children at the hospital.

Jumbo Tennis tournaments have been conducted by the Toowoomba West Rotary club for many years, with the hospital and Camp Quality the major benefactors. Thousands of dollars and lots of fun has been raised during that time and Toowoomba Hospital Foundation CEO Peter Rookas said the tradition will continue.

“While it is sad that the club has to cease,  I want to assure the Rotary members & the community that Jumbo Tennis will live on with more charity tournaments in the future.”

He said the Toowoomba West Rotary Club has left a wonderful legacy in Toowoomba, with so many charities & community groups cared for over numerous years from their generous members who always adhered to the Rotary International credo; ‘Service above self’.
