Around the Clubs in December


A lovely story from the Birmingham club’s January newsletter from Douglas MacDonald

Whilst on duty at the Sleigh before Christmas a man placed some coins in my collecting tin and then said “are you the same Rotary as the one which ran the Training Centre in New Canal Street in the 1980s”. I was pleased to confirm his belief and he then explained that having been made redundant he had taken a course in metalwork at the Training Centre subsequently gaining full employment until his recent retirement.
