Kasman Andy, 23, who was due to appear f a c i n g t h e s a m e charges, plus arson and unlawful use of a motor vehicle, had not appeared by the time of publication. Rotary gives happy end The toy library and its young fans are on the same page thanks to two hefty donations from Rotary. Picture: JUSTIN BRIERTY CHARITY goes a long way as proven by two local Rotary Clubs. The Central Australian Community Toy Library (CACTL) operates a toy lending service for families with children aged up to six. From their toy library van, they also run a mobile playgroup that travels to four primary schools, and town camps each week, to allow young children to meet and play. Michelle Thompson from CACTL said when the van broke down, no one expected it to be as expensive as it was. The van needed a new fuel injection pump, which ended up costing the not-for-profit organisation $5085.60. Because we work on a fin ancial year budget, we didnt plan on a huge expense, Ms Thompson said. I wrote to the Rotary Clubs to see if they could give us some assistance. Both Alice Springs and Mbantua Rotary Clubs stepped up to the plate and each donated $2000 towards the toy library vans repair bill, which Ms Thompson said had helped to get the van back on the road. I dont know what we would have done without their help, she said. There are 395 member families of the Central Australian Community Toy Library Inc. The CACTL is in Diarama Village. Give them a call on 8952 6720.
