A nice, hot cup of goodwill: Buy a 'suspended coffee' and it's banked for someone who needs it.

Yes and Starbucks in the UK have singed up for this. However, it is not just about coffee the campaign is there to spread goodwill and help amongst those in need. Please help to spread the word and download a " Suspended Coffee" logo and ask the place where you buy your coffee to display it, even better donate a suspended coffee.

Your New District Governor.

Jan Harris makes history in District 1100 by becoming the first female District Governor and heralds a new within Rotary in this area since she leads the way for more women to join Rotary. This is part of what she has to say....    "Welcome to the new Rotary year. At the beginning of each Rotary year, as you know, there is a change of officers at RI, RIBI, District and in our Clubs. New presidents will take their first meetings in the coming week, I will make my first official club visit and we will be away into another exciting Rotary year seeking to achieve the goals set out at our recent club assemblies.
During this year I would like to see our clubs grow in size and strength, I would like us to encourage equality and diversity, to welcome more women into our clubs and more ethnic minorities. In fact I would like our clubs to reflect the diversity of the population in our towns and cities.
I wish you all the best for the new Rotary year and look forward seeing you all soon."

Rotary Around the World

From polio eradication in Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan to clean water in countries in Africa. Helping refugees in Turkey and Lebanon. Colleagues called to help with the flooding in India and closer to home The Trussel Trust feeding people in poverty. Rotary members are there on the spot and on the ground helping in what ever way they can. We will be telling you about this work and if you know of instances then please let us know.

Stop Press Latest: When hea heard of the floods and the plight of the Indian people in the north of his country our good friend Nischal Pandrey dropped everything and went to the aid of people there. A specialist cardiologist Nischal is on the ground helping injured families. A Rotarian really putting "service above self"
