One of our hardest working Rotarians has been honoured with a lifetime achievement award.

Sue Whitton (pictured right above with Swanage & Purbeck Rotary President Elect Maggie Hardy), a Rotarian since August 2006, was presented with the award at the recent Swanage Community Awards, held on the evening of Friday 19th January at The Centre in Chapel Lane.

Many will know Sue from her catering for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Street Party in 2022, but she has also catered for the Summer Community Fête, the Rotary Pop-Up Christmas shop and Silver Saturday amongst many other fundraising events.
