President Richard's Tenure is drawing to a close
Around about now the President of a Rotary Club is reflecting on "the job". Here is President Richard's thoughts.
In this Rotary Year, Thornbury celebrates 45 years of “Service to the Community”. The Inaugural Meeting took place at The Ship Hotel 30th April 1971. Ted Heath was Prime Minister, the UK went Decimal, and Benny Hill was Top of the Pops. A pound in your pocket then would be equivalent to £14.00 today.
Since that time there has been over two thousand weekly meetings. We have raised in excess of £400,000 which has been used to support many local and International charities, Our initiatives have encouraged 3000 plus school children to enter Rotary Competitions including Youth Speaks and latterly Young Chef and Young Musician.
Since 1986, ten thousand participants entering our annual Swimarathon have swum five thousand miles and is the “Best Community Event of the Year” according to the parents, group leaders and supporters.
Thornbury Leisure Centre
Thornbury Rotary's annual community fund-raiser for 2017 was in support of St Peter’s Hospice , Incredible Kids
and other local charities.
We’re delighted to announce that we have now exceeded our target of £20,000.
This includes team and business sponsorship as well as gift-aid. Our sincere thanks to all the teams and their captains, our business sponsors, individual sponsors and everyone else who has been involved in one way or another.
