Value of Rotary shared at the District Conference

Source: The value of Rotary shared at our District Conference

ACT LOCALLY, IMPACT GLOBALLY –  this was a theme celebrated by Rotarians from Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire at their annual conference in Wells on Saturday.

This phrase was repeated many times by the various partner organisations with whom Rotarians have worked to change lives on a global scale.  Speakers at the conference, expressed how important the relationship with Rotary is to their work, whether it is providing actual help, such as when building a heath centre in Nepal, by saving “ring pulls” which are the basic material for enabling families in the Philippines to run small businesses creating bags and jewellery, or taking part in abseil and zip wire challenges to raise funds to educate children in South African townships.
