Thames Valley District Interact Day
Larkmead School, Faringdon Road, Abingdon OX14 1RF
Our first two District Interact Days were a shining example of why Interact is one of Rotary's
fastest growing phenomena. They were a great opportunity for all
our wonderful young Interactors throughout the District to meet up with
each other, exchange ideas, have fun and hear about projects like
Alan's Africa, how Princes Risborough Interactors care in their
community, how we are within the final inch of ending polio, discovering ShelterBox and planning some projects of their own. They were also where Rotarians, thinking about starting an Interact
Club in their area, discovered why Interact is such a lively and engaging way
of working with young people.
These wonderful young people are full of energy, enthusiasm and great ideas for making the world a better place
At the start of our inaugural Interact Day in November 2014, Paralympian rowing gold medalist, Naomi Riches MBE, the keynote speaker (and ace server of pizzas at lunch time!) tweeted to her followers
"Today is all about the young people from the Clubs...a chance to mingle & meet other Interactors.
Interact Champion Astrid Nielsen-Schuurmans of Abingdon Vesper and her team are busy finalising details for a Third District Interact Day, so please put this date in your diary now, alert your Interact Clubs and share it with everyone you know who is interested in starting one of these amazing clubs.
Our District has the most Interact clubs in Rotary in Britain and
Ireland (RIBI) and last year we again won the Vernon Schwarz Interact
Development Trophy - awarded to the district chartering
the most new Interact clubs in a calendar year. Lets make it a third win
with even more clubs!
"Because they are worth it"
More details to follow shortly
