The Anns meet every 4TH Tuesday of the month at different Anns homes. Kloof has a very strong Anns Club due to many Anns having stayed on when their Rotarian husbands' have resigned from Rotary after a very long service to the community. Friends of the Anns are now accepted in our club due to the motto, many hands make light work.

The Anns run their own fundraisers; however Anns and Rotarians help each other with most of their projects. Some of our projects are specifically joint projects.

Some of our projects are:-
  • Tea and delicious eats are provided every month by the Anns to some 60 Senior Citizens in the Upper Highway Area. We arrange speakers each month for these meetings.
  • Anns offer assistance with Game mornings and exercise classes for the Kloof Rest Home.
  • Anns volunteer weekly at the 1000 Hills Community Helpers Crisis Centre.
  • We collect underwear and second hand clothing and pass it on to the needy community.
  • Jumble Sales are held during the year to increase our funds.
  • At Christmas time we make up and distribute hampers to needy learners
  • Support is given to the Argus School with a large cash donation to improve their sewing classes.
  • 2nd Hand school shoes are collected from various schools and are re-distributed to needy children
  • Gillitts Primary School
Our biggest Fundraiser is the Open Gardens. Usually 5 or 6 private people offer their gardens to be open to the public. We charge an entrance fee to gain funds.

We would love to welcome new members with new ideas or just be a helping hand.
