END TO END sponsorship

Posted on : 22-03-2014 | By : Allan | In : News

Lancaster Rotarian Chris Welsby is cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End on Thursday 12th June to Saturday 21st June. He hopes to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Unique Kidz. Some say he is going the wrong way against all the prevailing winds, but if it was easy anyone could do it. In his youth he did the ride with camping gear but this time it is without all that extra weight and in more comfort.
Andy Wilkinson holds the current record for this 874 mile ride in a time of 41 hours, 4 minutes and 22 seconds. Chris will not challenge Andy on this occasion as he plans to do 877 miles in 10 days, but of course he would be very pleased if you could sponsor him.

A Lancaster Rotarian Abroad

George Chadwick, A Rotarian from our club currently abroad, has sent a letter to share his experiences and his reflection on how Rotary is truly international

To The Rotary Club of Lancaster

My annual return to Kuala Lumpur and the Rotary Club of Gombak is always a most pleasurable event.  It’s a time to see old friends and share many happy memories.  This year was no exception. I joined the Rotary Club of Gombak in 1994 and was with them for 10 years so there is a lot of history.

The President when I joined Wong Yow Seng has remained a close personal friend and we looked back on that first year.  I still have some very poor photos of one of our ventures in the nature park of Kuala Selangor to look at the rich variety of bird life there and also included an evening on the river in the boats to see the fireflies which lit up the arrears around the small boats We spent 3 nights in the local wooden A frames – an experience to be had if you have not done it  !!  We also took then opportunity to visit a couple of local schools and discuss how the Club might best help the pupils – the schools in the plantation areas are very poor indeed and need all the help they can get.  Photos are poor but the memories are good. Over a back breaking separate week end we planted 500 palm trees in a totally neglected area near the park – it’s now a veritable plantation of our trees.  We also had an enjoyable Xmas break as a couple of the photos show.  I could go on  – the ventures with the Malaysian nature society for the eclipse , a lost week end in a tea plantation.

As has become the custom I spoke to the Club on one of my visits and have attached the minutes of that meeting for interest. The President James Emarievbe is a Nigerian Tribal Chief and a senior person with PETRONAS oil.  You will see from the photo of me with him that it’s wise to agree with what James says  !!!

There are a few photos of me  with Club members who were there when I was a member  – the photos include 2 recent past district governors – not bad for a club of our size in an district of 74 rotary clubs.

I shall miss them all when we return to Lancaster in April. Rotary really is international.
