Brantford Rotaract surprises local agency

Brantford Rotaract president Remo Sambartolo, backed by executive members of the club, presents a cheque on Friday to a representative from the Children's Aid Society of Brant.

Brantford Rotaract members made a surprise visit to the Children's Aid Society of Brant on Friday to conduct a “random act of kindness.”

Rotaract members presented a CAS representative with a $250 cheque.

“We want to brighten the day of those in need,” said James Inwood, a member of the service club. “I think making it a surprise makes it that much more special.”

The fledgling local Rotaract group was established in 2009 and has about 25 members, many of them students at Laurier Brantford.

Connected with Rotary International, Rotaract is for those aged 18 to 30.

Brantford Rotaract sometimes works on joint projects with the Rotary Club of Brantford-Sunrise.

In addition to raising money for various causes, Rotaract members organize community projects. Later this month, they will help clean up a section of the banks of the Grand River.

Inwood said the club also plans to conduct other random acts of cheque donations to those in need throughout the year.

The CAS funding will go toward its breakfast program.
