A GROUP of pupils at a Bradford school have been granted a charter making them a youth equivalent of a Rotary Club.

The new ‘Interact Club’ at Bradford Grammar School was presented the charter by Peter Davey, President of Rotary International for Britain and Ireland.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. The Interact clubs are organised and sponsored by Rotary clubs, and are intended for people aged 12 to 18.

A ceremony at the school included Mr Davey, Bradford District Police commander Chief Superintendent Simon Atkin and the then Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillor Abid Hussain.

Matthew Cogan, aged 15, of Ilkley, received his “badge of office” by the Bradford Rotary Club’s president.

He said: “The creation of the Interact Club at BGS not only provides us with a fantastic opportunity to make a difference to the world in which we live, but also helps us here at school to get to know each other better." "It is one of the few times that we get to work closely across year groups from Year 7 right through to Year 10.”

The three charities the pupils have chosen to support through the club are the Bradford Curry Project, that provides a free meals service for the homeless, poor and underprivileged people of Bradford, Marie Curie, who provide care and support for people living with any terminal illness and WaterAid.
