International Service News

My third year as your International Service Chairman is underway. I hope to be able to visit many Clubs in the forthcoming months.

This year I am continuing to support Mary's Meals, and my presentation about this superb Charity appears to be quite popular - please give me a call if you Club would be interested.

Remember it only costs £13.90 to feed a child each day for a year!

Please continue to fill back packs, recycled ones will suffice and it doesn't costs I.W. anything to send them to Mary's Meals.



Sadly Bob Parfitt (& his wife Moy) is retiring at the end of this year.This is a charity which has been so well supported by District 7 for many years, and our sincere thanks go to both Bob and Moy for all their hard work during this time.

I am asking all Clubs in District 7 if they would like to make a donation towards a gift to be presented at the November District Meeting. There is no obligation but these have to be with the District Treasurer by Friday 8th November please.

If you have goods for this Charity please bring them as usual to the  District Meeting on the 14th November 2019.


These goods will be delivered before the end of the year.

I am hopeful of a further contact for Refugee Relief as soon as possible and am awaiting details from Bob.

In the meantime some of your goods can be directed to other charities that we support - i.e. knitted goods can be sent to Knit for Life.

Vision Aid

Glasses are no longer sent abroad but the frames are recycled to raise funds. All glasses can be given in at your local Specsavers store. 


PCF- Purple Community Fund 

A blue and gold brooch has been made by the PCF fund at a cost of £5 each and these will be available on the sales table.

Rotary Conference 2019 

Again the Inner Wheel stand went down very well, with lots of interest and a contact for the Assocciation President's charity, RDA from a stable owner wishing to work with them.

Finally a date for your diaries - 

THURSDAY 13th MAY 2021

The date of the next International Rally to be held at Greetham Valley Hotel.

I hope to see many of you there!
