The Magill Sunrise Market started in 2008 from the Campbelltown Council Civic Centre car park. In 2011 we moved to the Campbelltown Library to make it easier to find. It remains the only year-round market in the area.
From December 2019 we move to an even better location at the new Campbelltown Memorial Oval launching with a huge Two-day Christmas Market on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December from 9am-3pm. Make sure you check it out!
President Kirsty Stark presented a summary of the year at our Changeover Brunch, which is now in expanded form as her 2016-17 Annual Report.

And thanks to all of our supporters, who made it possible:
Tomorrow marks the 110th anniversary of Rotary being founded in Chicago (with just 4 members!).
Tonight District 9520 members (some of over 1.2 million worldwide) gathered outside Adelaide Oval to celebrate with a picnic, 110 balloons and a “Light Up Rotary” walk across the footbridge. Happy Birthday Rotary!
Zaidi ya Dreams was founded in June 2013 by Yasmine Ernst, who studied film in Adelaide before relocating to Kenya. She and her team now care for 20 children under the age of 5, who have either been abandoned or neglected by their families. The home offers a safe environment for children with traumatic backgrounds to heal and grow.
Following the success of The Reel Event, the $2,000 donation from Magill Sunrise Rotary has been used for two purposes:
– firstly towards medical bills for the children, many of whom come to Yasmine quite ill, including one child who was abandoned in a pit latrine at birth and contracted pneumonia and other associated lung problems.
– the other half of the money went towards buying two cows, which will make a huge difference to the future of the home.
In Yasmine’s words, “Daisy and Hambre will supply us with the milk we need to feed the kids, saving us about $150 a month, and will have calves that will provide more milk and give the home an income.”
At time of purchase of the cows Yasmine had to initially wait in the car so they would not be charged the Mzungu (foreigner) price. Then the contract was done and the cows were transported back to their new home in Kitisuru, about 30min from Nairobi.
