On Tuesday 22nd September 2015 at Coventry North Rotary Club, we hosted the Ladies and we had a very interesting illustrated talk by Rotarian Mike McConville from Stourbridge. He spoke about the Farmers Overseas Action Group operating in Uganda and the help it brought to the locals. This was in many ways, firstly to help them look after their crops, to assist purchasing  farmyard animals, and set up small hospitals and schools around the country to be able to help disabled and crippled children. Past President Ron Taylor gave the vote of thanks. President Bob handed over a cheque for the charity.Past President Ashwin Kanabar also gave a donation and his best wishes.President Bob  had the pleasure of handing over to Marian Westwood, a Paul Harrris Fellowship Medal, which had been confirmed on her earlier this year. Rotarians and Ladies showed their endorsement in the usual way. Photographs by Brian Sharp.
