Pershore Rotary’s new President
Lucy Thornton is Pershore Rotary’s new president. She joined Rotary having served 35 years with West Mercia Police and a further 7 years as a Police Staff Investigator. Since retiring, Lucy has become a School Governor and has volunteered in the Abbey bookstall and at the Pershore Foodbank during the lockdown.
Lucy enjoys long walks with Kai, her Siberian Husky, and gardening. “My family is very important to me, having had three children and now three grandchildren to keep me busy” says Lucy.
“My focus for Pershore Rotary will be the Community, working together to establish the needs of our youth and the elderly. But how can Rotary help to make things better?”, she asks. “Rotary has a new area of focus – protecting the environment, and this will form a major part of our thinking and support over the next few years. I am keen to renew and extend our working relationships with schools. For many years, Pershore High School students took part very successfully in Rotary competitions and together we ran a busy Interact Club. I would also like to establish links with our Primary Schools.”
It is traditional for incoming presidents to nominate the charities they intend to support, and this year Lucy will be supporting St Richard’s Hospice and Acorns Children’s Hospice. Both charities will benefit from the club’s ‘Tree of Remembrance Appeal’ at Christmas.
One final comment from Lucy, “Although the Covid restrictions are to be lifted. I would encourage you all to remain cautious and keep yourselves safe.”
Acorns and Pershore Rotary Grant Scheme (supporting local charities) received funds from £3000 raised from Rotary Club of Pershore's Tree of Lights Appeal 2020
