International Showcase Spring 2015

” Together we can make a Difference “

We were delighted that 30 of our District Clubs brought Displays of their International work to the Showcase held at The North Wingfield Miners Welfare.

We also had Displays from Mercy Ships, Aquabox, Shelterbox and Bridge2Aid. During the afternoon we had almost 200 Rotarians , families, friends and community enjoying the displays and the opportunity to find out more about projects and charities helping Communities throughout the World.

As a follow up many clubs have arranged speakers for their members and agreed to work together on fundraising.

Sue Leyden, daughter of Sir John Hunt 1953 Everest expedition leader, gave a superb talk about “Everest Re-Visited and the work of The Himalayan Trust”. Our District Governor Steve Lawes presented her a donation of £300 from our District to support the Charity.

We hope to repeat the Showcase in the coming Rotary year using Derby and Nottingham Universities as our venues.
