BowelCare 2017 Project Report

This year the Manly Rotary Club again participated in the Rotary BowelCare project with local pharmacies.   David Park picked up the kits from North Rocks and distributed kits to 5 local pharmacies while Ken Hopley distributed kits to 4 local pharmacies.  One other pharmacy came on board when the program started making a total of 10 participating pharmacies. Ken Hopley did the reconciliation collecting the monies and unused kits from the pharmacies and returned the unused kits to North Ryde.  The Manly Rotary section of the BowelCare Project totalled  $3,135 collected for the purchase of 209 BowelCare kits from our participating Pharmacies. Each year this project identifies  a number of positive results leading to further medical follow up, and hopefully early diagnosis and successful treatment.  The results for the District project will be forwarded when they become available.
