Every Saturday we bring you a quick news update from around the Network which may have passed you by.


President Janice Mason’s Official Handover took place at a garden party janice handover1hosted by eRotarian Debbie Vincent and partner Jan Blankenstein last Saturday afternoon.    Janice is pictured here with the new SVP Sinead and JVP Debbie.  One attendee was eRotarian Debbie Vance on Skype from Canada who shared that a colleague of hers who had won £100 in the Swindon Old Town Duck Race and now wanted to donate it to the eClub.  Rather than waste monies sending it back to the UK.  It was agreed to give the funding as a donation for Debbie’s favourite charity   CERA.

CERA is a group of dedicated volunteers working for the welfare of stray and Cera dogsoneabandoned dogs in Taiwan and the British Columbia lower mainland.  Since 2008 their volunteers have supported CERA through fundraising, education programs, fostering, and home/reference checks for over three hundred dogs & their new families.



There was a successful if painful end to the Two Men on the Thames Challenge.  ROTB-logoNick and Charles completed the course on 12th July. They were helped by Ben since Charles somehow banged his head in Wallingford and was out of commission a couple of days.
Roll Out the Barrel trustee Adrian Brewster presented the guys with a cup and certificates for completing the run and the Rotary Club of Chertsey also hosted the crew at one of their big events.  Next? Roll Out the Barrel is  at the music festival on the Isle of Wight this coming weekend and Adrain and Brett will be there.

Love-to-HEP-imageLove to End Polio  President Janice is excited to report that stories of how couples met have started to come in; with tales of people meeting online; in supermarkets and in bars. But we need Love to be infectious.    Do you have a romantic story to tell us?  Please send us your story of how you and your partner met to Love to End Polio and pass the word on.

Neck Ties to help End Polio  From our initial launch we have had two offers for support outside the eClub. One is from an individual who has some unwanted ties and can sew.  The other offer is from a Rotary contact working with her local Interact Club who is using the project to explore design and sewing skills.  We would love to hear from anyone who would like to join us in this exciting project.  More details http://www.1100rotaryeclub.org/recycled-neck-ties/.
