Some of the remarkable achievements of Rotarians in the Thames Valley Area

It never ceases to amaze the lengths Rotarians go to in the name of 'Service above Self'. Whether it be brave acts of 'derring-do' to promote awareness and raise funds for a cause, giving endless volunteer hours to improve life for others or simply leading an exemplary life of quiet service that fulfills the exhortation of Horace to 'Do good by stealth and blush to find it fame', its all trully remarkable.
