'Be The Inspiration' is the Rotary motto this year and the BBC Sports presenter Mike Bushell proved just that at the 91st anniversary Charter Dinner last night.

Club President David welcomed  97  people including representatives from nine Rotary and Inner Wheel Clubs. The Mayor of Ripon, Coun. Pauline McHardy , brought civic greetings and praised the Club's achievements while District Governor Nigel Arthurs of the Rotary Club of Birstall Luddites made particular mention of the need to spread the word about Rotary and its work. 

Guest speaker Mike Bushell described how he had been with the BBC News channel since its launch in 1997 and maintained that sport in all its guises can help self-belief. He holds the world record for trying different sports on a BBC Saturday morning slot.

The evening ended with a surprise for Peter Race who was presented with a Paul Harris Award.
