July 11th - The Rotary club of Dronfield awards an annual Paul Harris Fellowships to a Rotarian or member of the community who has shown tangible and significant assistance for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among people of the world.
This year (2018) the club has chosen to award two Paul Harris Fellowships. These are awarded to club members Gerald Swift and Ian Ward. Many people in Dronfield will be aware of Gerald and Ian and the work they have performed in the community.
In recognition of the award the Rotary club of Dronfield has donated £650 to the Rotary Foundation - an organisation that strives to bring peace to our world through the programs it implements. In recent years, close to £40m a year has been spent on humanitarian programs, £10m on educational programs, and in excess of £60m annually to achieve The Rotary Foundation's goal of completely eradicating polio world-wide.
