Our Heroes Receive a Warm Reception
Halifax Rotary Club’s immediate past President David Horsman made a presentation of a cheque to Lt Col Zac Stennings on the occasion of the 3rd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment’s recent visit to Halifax.
This follows on from the award of a Paul Harris fellowship to the Battalion about 12 months ago.The battalion had recently returned from active duty in Afghanistan and was welcomed enthusiastically by the citizens of Calderdale.
David said that the Club wished to recognize further the sacrifice that the Regiment has made and that this was a way of appreciating the close bond which exists with our club and local community.
Lt Col Stennings said that the significant gift was much appreciated and that he would ensure it would be used for the benefit of the soldiers and families of the 3rd Battalion.
