Foundation Seminar opens the eyes

Peter Moralee welcomed over 100 fellow Rotarians to the annual Foundation Seminar at the Derbyshire Hotel on the 10th Nov.

The Seminar updates club representatives on the progress of the only Rotary International charity – the Rotary Foundation.

Thanks were expressed to the over 80% of District Clubs who actively support their charity in addition to their many standalone club projects. Updates were given on the End Polio mission, making a grant application, and the creative process behind the Rotary club of Doncaster St Leger’s  End Polio pack for primary schools. Peace fellow Yuko Maeno updated on her progress by video from Japan, – complete with her recently born baby! A personal appearance by current peace fellow Mike Niemiec on his military experience and induction into the Rotary Peace Program at the University of Bradford provided a fascinating insight into the benefits these scholarships deliver to the world.
