Sarah Brown talks with Malala at the Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland Conference.
Spring seems to be here at last which much better weather over the past few weeks, let’s hope for a good summer.
We have been busy as always, we attended RIBI Conference in Birmingham over the weekend of the 11th -14th April. A great weekend with some very good speakers including Sarah Brown and Malala, what an extremely brave young lady Malala is. Sarah and Malala talked about how she now wanted to make sure that all girls are educated, and indeed that every child gets the opportunity to go to go to school http://www.aworldarschool.org
This weekend is of course the Festival of Rotary, ADG Sue Fitzjohn and our PR and Comms Chairman Allan Berry have worked really hard arranging this event and pulling everything together, thank you to them both and everyone else who has helped. I will tell you how it went next time.
Philippines – I know you are all very anxious to know what is happening to our Philippine Fund. I am pleased to be able to tell you that our International Chairman, Jill Johnston has made contact with District 3860 and looking for a suitable project which may also benefit from a global grant. I know it seems a long time, but we have to be sure that your money is going where it is most needed and nothing will be wasted.
