Supporting 3rd World Entrepeuners

Posted by: David Kirsch-Mills - Thu, 13/04/2017 - 9:10am

Our Club's International Committee is helping small 3rd World entrepreneurs get their businesses off to a successful start via the special Crowd Funding organisation, Lend With Care. By lending small amounts of money to these entrepreneurs we are helping these people achieve commercial independence and employ people in areas where there is little opportunity. As the money is paid back we re-invest in similar projects. Read Kry Pak's story and get an insight to how we are helping.

The Club celebrated Christmas with an evening at the Red Lion, Hernhill. Forty members and friends enjoyed a delicious meal in the relaxed party atmosphere. A light-hearted Christmas quiz gave everyone something to think about. Could you name the original eight reindeer in the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’?

We also celebrated Jim Young’s 30th anniversary as a Club member. President Duncan Holliday presented Jim (without the Christmas hat) with his certificate, marking  30 years of support for Rotary.

Congratulations Jim!
