Rotary Volunteers project update

Rotary volunteers at work

Due to extreme economic pressures, the Rotary Foundation was forced to cut the Volunteer Service Grant funds, March 2009 bringing many volunteer programmes to a grinding halt. We were desperate that the Kilimambogo Dental Clinic, Kenya, would not become one of these programmes doomed to fail because volunteers could not afford to travel and give a month’s service to this successful project. 

Around the Clubs in December

Birmingham

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.
