After a successful business career, Chris Jenkin (right in photo) has devoted himself to a range of community projects in Cambridge. He was involved in setting up Cambridge Street Pastors, has been a strong supporter of Chaplaincy for People at Work, and is Chairman of HOPE Cambridge, an initiative to encourage Cambridge churches to work together in the community. But perhaps his major project has been setting up the Cambridge Churches Homeless Project. From its beginning, he has guided and encouraged the project, building relationships with a wide range of Christian churches and also with the Cambridge Synagogue, to provide an evening meal and overnight accommodation for rough sleepers from the streets of Cambridge through the winter months. Important as hot food and a dry, warm bed is for those who are homeless, Chris has not felt that was enough, and has worked hard to develop opportunities for homeless people to move into more permanent accommodation and get back into work. The Rotary Club of Cambridge has been pleased to be associated with CCHP from the start, raising several thousands of pounds to support its work, and with some members volunteering to help, doing evening or overnight duties. The Rotary Club of Cambridge is delighted to be able to recognise Chris Jenkin’s outstanding work in the community by awarding him a Paul Harris Fellowship - Rotary’s highest award.

Dr Harter resplendent in his High Sherriff uniform, started by telling something of his background: Wakefield Grammar School for Boys, Fitzwilliam College Cambridge and a subsequent career in the high technology world typical of Cambridge.
