2015 Presidential Citation

Visit from RIBI President Peter King

Peter King, Robert Dunn and Keith Hopkins

The leading Rotarian in Great Britain and Ireland told members in Dundee their organisation in these isles can sometimes appear self-satisfied.
Peter King made the Rotary Club of Dundee the final regional visit of his year as president of Rotary International Britain and Ireland (Rotary GB&I).
The immigration and human rights tribunal judge and Anglican priest singled out the host club for praise, however.
Before addressing a packed gathering at the Invercarse Hotel, he had witnessed the valuable contribution of its volunteer helpers at the Brae Riding Centre for the Disabled.
“That is an example of what we should all be doing – working in partnership with other organisations to give help in our community,” he stated.
“We as Rotarians can sometimes appear self-satisfied and we think we should be left to do our own thing, but that is not what we should be about.”
As well as partnerships to give help in the community, he called for Rotary clubs to promote volunteering among young people.
He commended the organisation’s Interact and Rotaract divisions as vehicles for these activities.
Dundee president Robert Dunn presented Mr King with cheques for £6,300 for the Rotary Foundation and £3,100 for the End Polio campaign.
The sums had been raised by the club in what was described as its exceptional year of fundraising with tens of thousands collected for good causes.
Keith Hopkins, district governor, presented  Mr Dunn with a special citation to mark the Dundee performance.
The event was attended by members of other Rotary clubs in the Dundee area and beyond.
