Tom Moloney is the new President of Matlock Rotary Club. Tom, a keen sailor and ex- Director of Pinkerton, the American Detective Agency, who are the origin of the term ‘Private Eye’. Tom was responsible for Anti-Counterfeit Operations on behalf of major international clients throughout Europe, Middle East & Africa. He will now endeavour to steer the club through the choppy waters ahead, as Matlock Rotary Club adjusts to the Covid 19 pandemic.
Tom, who lives at Pikehall and has two grown up children said, “ I am looking forward to my year as President, despite the difficult times ahead. It is a challenge I shall embrace and the club will come out of the crisis stronger and more modern, meeting the needs of members and future members by being inclusive, open to change, flexible and worthwhile to the local community, as well as being involved with National and International projects such as End Polio Now and disaster relief.”
Currently, the club is holding meetings on Zoom and no events are planned for the rest of this year. Hopefully, during 2021, the club might be able to recommence the club calendar.
Never-the- less, Community Grants are still available to community organisations in the area, that need financial support and meet the criteria of being locally based and delivering services that provide positive benefits. Details of the grant are available on the club’s web site.
Bursaries will again be awarded to students at Highfields School in Matlock, to help them with their studies at University or College, including apprentice training.
Throughout the year ahead, grants may also be made to worthwhile organisations, such as foodbanks, depending on the availability of funds.
New members are also welcome, and again details of how to join us can be found on the club’s web site.
