Drs Alistair and Margaret Robertson, who run Jacob’s Well Appeal, are pleased to come and talk to the Club on Wednesday 11th April. They regularly give talks on Jacobs Well.
I have been associated with them for some years, but only met Alistair recently. Both Louise and I were much impressed by him, and their rapidly expanding organisation.
They are both retired GPs from Bridlington,Jacobs Well is based in Beverley, but other outlets are being developed. Club has been supporting them since soon after I joined Rotary, initially involving Dr Tony Chico, Dr John Spence and myself. Currently John Bradley and I are collecting and supplying them.
