The Presidents handover over took place last week at the Bridport Golf Club.
Due to coronavirus it was not the usual annual ceremonial event as masks and strict seating arrangements were in place.
Past President Roger Pollock handed over to President Bernard Paull, who then inaugurated President Elect Colin Bowditch and President Nominee Chrissie Bailey.
Bernard thanked Roger for overseeing an extremely frustrating year, with most meetings held on Zoom, even so it was a very successful year with the Club and its Business Partners supporting many causes and charities:-
School laptops and visualisers £2500, Skate and Ride £2000, Branden’s Trail £100, Junior Rugby, Youth Football and Bridport Youth Dance shared £1240, and £200 was donated to Prout Bridge Youth Support group.
£2000 was donated to Bridport Town Council’s Corona Virus Community Support. Walditch Play Area £200, Yeovil Hospital Breast Cancer appeal £300.
Beirut Hospital Disaster £600, Lepra Leprosy Charity £100, SOS Africa £600 and the Philippine Community fund £250.
President Roger’s charity the Dorset Blind Association will shortly receive his donation of £600.
President Bernard’s charity will be the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.
