After a very successful year, Elaine handed over the chain of office, at Boboli on 11 July, to Stephen Woodhouse.
During her year over £12000 was raised, supporting a variety of charities. Local youth groups, the Children’s Air Ambulance, Rainbows, Twenty Twenty and Crisis were among those who benefited. She is keen to attract more female members, so ladies do contact the Club if you are interested.
Stephen wants to continue to interact with and support the local community. Projects this year will include old favourites, the Kibworth Fireworks Display in November and Trolley Dash in December.
The ‘Friends of Rotary’ Group enables involvement in the fun and fulfilment of Rotary, without commitment of full membership. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
