THE TOM MORRIS COMMUNITY AWARD
Sale Rotary Club has launched a two-month nomination period to find this year’s outstanding local ‘unsung hero’. Our annual ‘Tom Morris Community Award’ is a ‘people’s honour’ for someone who gives dedicated community service because they believe in what they do and go the extra mile to help make Sale a better place to live. Named after distinguished former Sale Rotarian the late Tom Morris (pictured), the framed award names each year’s winner and they also receive a cash award and certificate. The first winner was Simon Youd whose community scheme ‘Skillz FC’ was changing the face of Sale’s ‘racecourse’ estate for primary school children, adults, the over 50s and unemployed residents alike. Last year the winner was Daniel Gallacher whose tireless work tackles issues affecting the daily lives of disabled people in Trafford. “The common link lies in work that helps improve the future of our community,” says Sale Rotary Club president Rob Chilton. “This year’s winner could be from any area of local life.”
Nominations have now closed and the winner will be announced soon.
This is the club that a district governor described as "a vibrant and active set of Rotarians" and Rotary News called "an example for all Rotarians".
The Rotary Club of Sale has served the surrounding community for more than 80 years since it was founded in 1934. And although Rotary is a worldwide organisation - with a proud record of assisting international charities and causes, responding to global disasters and supporting people who desperately need help - the Sale club, first and foremost, is here to support Sale.
"We want people who need help, old and young, groups or individuals, to know that we are there for them," says the current president, Rob Chilton. "As many as possible will have first call on whatever financial help we can offer because, at the end of the day, this is Sale Rotary Club and we belong to this community."
So if you need help or support for a charity, cause or project that's designed to help others less fortunate than we are ... please get in touch.
If you are Rotarian visiting the area and need something to do on a Tuesday evening ... we look forward to meeting you. Just call 07850 280213 and let us know to expect you and we will put you on the attendance list.
Or, if you would like to join us and become a Rotarian, yourself ... we might even buy you a drink!
Sale, in Trafford, is five miles south west of Manchester city centre on the main A56 Chester road.
