I first came across Rotary on the internet (rotary.org) and started reading all about the good work that they do. I contacted my local Rotary club to find more information and got an invite to one of their meetings. I was so impressed with what I saw I decided to apply to become a member. This was late summer of 2014 and I have not looked back.

Being part of Rotary offers me the fellowship and friendship of other Rotarians and, gives me the opportunity to get involved in projects that benefit the local community but also wider afield with Rotary international.

This year I am looking forward to being the Foundation Chair for Bromsgrove Rotary. We will be looking for new local ideas and projects that we can get involved in. This also includes new and existing world wide projects such as the eradication of Polio, shelter box and water aid when there is a disaster in the world
