The Halifax Courier Community Spirit Award Ceremony was held on the 17th July and  Rotary Clubs in Calderdale were nominated for the Charity of the Year Award. The other nominations included The Community Foundation for Calderdale, Overgate Hospice and a Group in Brighouse supporting the Elderly. We were absolutely thrilled to find out that we had actually won the Award, with details being reported in the Halifax Courier. Immediate Past President Ken Forsyth, Rtn Olwen Edwards (both of the Rotary Club of Sowerby Bridge) and Rtn Brian Harkness representing the Rotary Club of Halifax were present to accept the coveted award.


In speaking with the judges afterwards, it was commented that the Award recognised the enormous contribution that Rotary Clubs in Calderdale have made to the community for many years, but also the fact that they were now working together in projects like the Shoebox Appeal and the Navigation Walk.
