A highlight of September 2021 has been celebrating club collaboration between 5 Yorkshire Rotary Clubs of Knaresborough, York Ainsty, York, Horbury and Ossett Phoenix, Osgoldcross & Elmet along with a range of non-Rotarians volunteers all involved with the identification, collection, repair and packing of the equipment, before it is shipped abroad.
Yorkshire based PhysioNet, a national charity with a strong Rotary influence, has loaded its 108th container of unwanted physiotherapy equipment for disabled people including its 15,000th wheelchair. The recipient of this latest container will be the Rotary Club of Harare Dawn in Zimbabwe and it will be the ninth container they have received since 2016.
Looking forward, I eagerly await our Virtual District Conference in partnership with Zidivo, which will allow visitors to visit at a time of their choice on 9 October from 09.00 or anytime on 30 days after the event.
Some of the highlights include:
Ash Razzaq - National champion of Change
Jayne Senior - Sex abuse Whistleblower
George Spiteri - How the environment affects our communities
Dr Raj Mani - Oxygen to India
Danielle Brown - Be your best self
Do please invite our wide range of club representatives from around the world as the event has no geographical boundaries.
