Paul Harris Fellowship

Our meeting on 24 June provided the first opportunity to mark the award of a “Paul Harris Fellowship” to Rotarian Richard Bugg. The PHF is awarded for service to Rotary and the community. And in this respect Richard’s citation is impressive.


Richard Bugg PHF

The 2021-22 Handover, our first in-person meeting since early 2020,  provided the opportunity to mark the award of a “Paul Harris Fellowship” to Rotarian Richard Bugg.  The PHF, named after the founding father of Rotary International, is awarded for exceptional service to Rotary and the community. 

Richard has made a major contribution to Felixstowe Rotary Club in several areas including publicity and public image since joining in 2014. But most importantly he has spent a large amount of time and effort in developing our charity boxing event, which is now an important part of the local amateur boxing circuit as well as being an important element to our club’s annual charitable activities. By doing so Richard has enabled our club to continually improve this fundraising event and enhance the image of our club in the community. Moreover, Richard is highly supportive of the amateur boxing community and its role in promoting the health and wellbeing of young people in and around the Ipswich area.

Quote from Martin Webb, Harwich Boxing Club and Matchmaker: “The annual Felixstowe Dinner show has established itself as one of the premier events in the East Anglian amateur boxing calendar.”

And, beyond Rotary, Richard devotes a substantial part of his day-to-day life to charity and good causes both in the local community and further afield.
