Members of Roborough Rotary Club show they are good 'sports' in presidential handover
(From the Plymouth Herald July 29th)
The triathlon trio will be participating in the annual Roadford Lake team triathlon on September 6, helping disadvantaged children worldwide by raising money for Right to Play and Literacy in a Box.
Caroline's presidential year ended on a high point when she was asked to open the Independence South West Summer Fete on June 28. Photos on our Facebook page via this link. Throughout her year Caroline, together with club members Phil Greenwood and Hugh Baker, have been heavily involved in the renovation of the sensory garden in the grounds of their respite centre, Rockville House.
President Phil will be continuing the club's involvement with local community projects. The annual Disability Activity Day, run in partnership with Scoot-A-Long, took place on Plymouth Hoe on August 2 (read all about it via this link) and the club will be working with Rotary Charity REPOD (Rotarians Easing the Problems of Dementia) to set up a memory cafe to help Dementia sufferers in the North Plymouth area.
With the club having established the first primary school RotaKids Club in Plymouth a couple of years ago, Phil is keen to get more young people involved with Rotary and particularly the Rotary charity Literacy in a Box (of which he is a trustee) which provides a brilliant way for children to learn about other cultures while helping children in need overseas.
Phil says: We went through a visioning process earlier this year to find out how club members wanted to help communities both here and overseas. I'm very fortunate to be supported by such a committed group of Rotarians who will be turning those ideas into reality over the next twelve months and beyond.
In the next 30 days...
