Members and visitors at the Club may have noticed the striking piece of artwork displayed at the bottom of the stairs, near our fish tank. The artwork was made as a thank you to Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club for its continued support of the Rydalmere East Public School Autism Unit.

“Your support is greatly appreciated by students, teachers, staff and our whole school community” - Emma Lodewijks from Rydalmere East Public.

The Club really appreciates this gift and looks forward to continuing our support for the unit.

Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club began supporting Genes for Jeans Day way back in 1997. This year club staff kept up its charitable tradition by donating for Genes for Jeans Day Sydney 2017.

“We had another great turnout in denim," says Human Resources Manager Joanne Luke. “Everywhere I looked in the club I saw staff wearing their jeans and committing to such a worthy cause. And the more money they donated, the more we as a club were able to contribute, as the Board of Directors match any money raised by staff.”

Every year since 1997, the team’s efforts have raised thousands of dollars to support programmes for The Children's Medical Research Institute to prevent leukemia, muscular dystrophy, genetic defects and many other disorders.

Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club champions the true spirit of the Club Movement with an ongoing dedication to serve its community.
