On the 2nd July the Inauguration of the new President of Kendal Rotary Club took place with the existing President, Digby Gunson, handing over the reins to the new incoming President, Ken Gibson.  Following a very successful year overseen by Digby, Ken intends to carry on the good work of Rotary in both the local area and Internationally.  Rotary’s project to eradicate polio worldwide, since its inception in 1979, is almost at an end with only a few cases occurring in 2017-18.

The handover

The Kendal Club intends to carry on the many initiatives for the South Lakes area such as a ‘Kids Out day for Sandgate School, a ‘Youth Speaks’ competition for schools, a ‘Young Technology’ tournament, sending two students to the ‘Rotary Youth Leadership Award’ scheme and fund raising for the many requests the club receives from local charities as well as responding to International disasters by sending ‘Shelter Boxes’ and ‘AquaBoxes’ to affected countries. Our commitment to helping a small village in Nepal following the devastating earthquakes recently by providing funding for necessary projects will continue.
