Bronze dolphins will spin for Dreamfit Foundation

Bronze dolphins will spin for Dreamfit Foundation

The dolphins, atop a wishing well at the complex’s northern end, rotate 360 degrees with the insertion of $2.

As part of the Hillarys Boat, Dive and Fishing Show, Hillarys and Wanneroo Rotary clubs will donate proceeds from spins this Friday to Sunday, March 15-17, to the foundation.

Rotarians will also shake tins for the non-profit group, which uses innovative engineering to modify, adapt and design vehicles, watercraft and other equipment for people with disabilities.

Rotary spokesman Robin Russell said the foundation, with support from the Boating Industry Association of WA, would also set up displays near the wishing well.

‘Our fundraising and a demonstration of an amphibian (craft) on the safe beach adjacent to the wishing well will allow the boating community and harbour visitors to see the great work Dreamfit is doing for the disabled community,’ he said.

The Rotary clubs commissioned Joan Walsh-Smith and Charlie Smith to sculpt the dolphin statue in memory of the much-loved trio, who died in an unsolved case of poisoning in 1999.

Money raised benefits Rotary community projects.
