Charity & Community
Charity and Community at the Ranelagh Club
The Ranelagh Club has been a focal point of the Mount Eliza Community for over 95 years. Over this time the Club has been involved with a number of Charitable and Community based organisations.
The Ranelagh Club are proud sponsors of the Dolphin Research Institute and officially became Dolphin Spotters in 2013.
The Club hosts the Dolphin Research Institute’s ”Community Dolphin Monitoring Project” and we are one of four locations around the bay where dolphin spotting and observation will happen every month.
On the deck at Ranelagh – (Summer) 10.00am to 1pm (Winter) 11.00am – 1pm – the second Sunday of every month. The dolphin watchers are more than happy to talk to our members to answer any questions and explain the valuable works of the DRI in protecting our marine treasures.
Learn more about the DRI’s work at: www.dolphinresearch.org.au or call 1300 130 949.
The Dolphin Research Institute
The Dolphin Research Institute is based at Hastings, on the shore of Western Port in Victoria, Australia. DRI’s efforts are focussed in the south-eastern region of Australia.
DRI was seeded in the late 80’s by people who were concerned about our local dolphins and what we were doing to our marine environment. We have grown in to a well-managed and sustainable not-for-profit conservation organisation. The Institute is self-funded from the community, the corporate sector and government grants. Today, we are able to employ biologists and educators to work with our volunteers and students on structured and outcome-driven projects at our Marine Conservation Centre . Our original concerns and passions remain, as do our community roots.
2015 – Ranelagh Club are indebted and thank the Mt Eliza Community Bank (Bendigo Bank) for the donation of our defibrillator. The defib unit is located in the tennis cabana and we hope it is never required.
The Sinclair Family
Ranelagh Club are grateful to the Sinclair Family for their donation of a beautiful bench, located in the tennis area, in memory of Les and Olga Sinclair who were members of the Club for over 28 years and avid tennis players.

Operating under State and Territory Emergency Management frameworks, our distinct yellow vessels respond to a variety of marine incident types, rescuing thousands of people each year. We also work in support of other agencies in response to events such as marine fire and medical evacuation from vessels.
Since their establishment in 1936, Cancer Council Victoria has developed an international reputation for our innovative work in cancer research, prevention and support. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we play a leading role in reducing the impact of all cancers on all people.
A defibrillator is located in the main beachbox (no 81) accessible to club members and the wider community in case of an emergency.
This has been provided by a Mornington Peninsula Shire grant and is greatly appreciated.
