After an introduction by Tony Docherty our President, District 1060 Governor Bala Jaspal presented the certificate incorporating the Interact Club within Rotary International to Liz Dawson President of the Interact Club in the presence of Chris Smith Head Teacher and Rotarian and Nick Coates Head of Sixth Form, and thanked the students for their commitment and hard work in support of others less fortunate than ourselves. Several parents of student members of the Interact Club also attended the event.
We are delighted to report that the magnificent sum of £1502.06 was raised in support of Burnaid at the Bromsgrove Bluegrass Bash held in the High Street on 29 June 2019. We send a huge vote of thanks to Andrew Wuzik and his fellow musicians for their efforts again in support of such a worthwhile cause! Thanks go also to our members and to the members of our Interact Club for their efforts in collecting the money raised on the day from the public.
New District Governor Bala Jaspal attended our Business/Council Meeting on 9 July 2019 held at the Maekong Thai Restaurant in Bromsgrove. After speaking to members, Bala presented Immediate Past President Amal Rampal and new President Tony Docherty with Certificates of Recognition for their sterling work in support of the Club and Rotary in general.
Club President Tony Docherty presented Bala Jaspal with a cheque in the sum of £250 for her chosen charity ‘Heads Together.’
The Club is pleased to be sponsoring three Sixth Form students from South Bromsgrove High School to attend a residential weekend from 12-14 July 2019 at a centre at Lichfield, where on completion they will gain a Rotary Youth Leader Award. The students are existing members of our Interact Club.
On 29 June 2019 Andy Wuzik in conjunction with Tony Docherty staged the Bromsgrove Bluegrass Bash in the High Street, which was supported by a number of local musicians, who played for twelve hours. The event proved very popular with local townspeople, and a street collection was held in aid of Burnaid. Burnaid exists to support child victims of burn injuries and their families, and the charity was set up by Helen King a former Honorary Member of our Club, who sadly passed away recently after a long battle with cancer. The event was supported as well by corporate sponsorship, provided by WuzikMuzik, Judd Medical, the Maekong Thai Restaurant, and Bromsgrove Printing Company.
On 25 June 2019 we had a get together at the Maekong Thai Restaurant in Bromsgrove, when outgoing President Amal Rampal handed over the chain of office to incoming President Tony Docherty. Tony then presented Ray Sinclair with his badge of office as President Elect. Members and guests had a very enjoyable evening and excellent food as always. At the event, Secretary Ron Pearce was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship. As a Club, we are delighted that Amal has been appointed an Assistant Governor for District 1060, and we congratulate him warmly.
The Rotary Club of Bromsgrove is delighted to be sponsoring the South Bromsgrove High School Interact Club, where the Headteacher is a Rotarian. The Club was established on 7 March 2019, and already its members have identified the Basement Project in Bromsgrove and a school in Tanzania as two causes worthy of their support and fundraising efforts. It’s great to see young people embracing the idea of ‘Service above self’ and working enthusiastically for the benefit of those less fortunate than themselves in communities at home and abroad!
