This project is in the early stages, involving Newmarket and Parnell Rotary Clubs. Its objective is to fund the procurement of underwear for the 240 men and 40 women who come through Epsom Lodge annually. A new program, warmly known as The Undie 1000, a take on the “Indy 500”.
Many of them arrive with only the clothes they are wearing and the lack of clean underwear can be embarrassing as well as being a health concern. Newmarket has already pledged funding support on an annual basis and a call for donations of underwear has been sought from Bendon, NZ.
Our club can get in behind this great cause in that we won't be doing a breakfast this year for the lodge.
