On Wednesday 3rd October 2018, around forty
members, partners and friends of Leatherhead Rotary Club attended the
club's weekly meeting at the Police Federation Headquarters in Leatherhead to
see Gary Zabel, the club’s Immediate Past President, present a cheque for
£15,000 to Jack Bacon from Prostate Cancer UK, the club’s main charity for
support during the previous Rotary year.
This fantastic figure represents the largest single amount the club has ever donated to a charity and was raised through a wide variety of events throughout the preceding twelve months, including the club’s annual Golf Day and 10k Run, together with a very special sell-out Band Concert at Leatherhead Theatre, featuring the British Philharmonic Big Band, led by trombonist Andy Crompton, a close personal friend of Mr Zabel, and who himself was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2014.
For further information about prostate cancer and the work of Prostate Cancer UK, please visit www.prostatecanceruk.org.Leatherhead Rotary Club meet at 7pm most Wednesday evenings at the Police Federation Headquarters in Highbury Drive, Leatherhead. For further information about the club and its wide range of community, fundraising and social activities, please
