RC Glossop President, 2016-2017
Vice-President Karen welcomes Jeff Hall and Dr Ian Maclure into Glossop Rotary Club
Paul Harris Fellowship Award
At the 2015 Charter Evening, the highest award the Club can bestow, the prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship Award, was presented to fellow Rotarian Bill Mitchell for his exceptional services working to help relieve poverty in Africa through a little known Charity "“ "˜Tools for Self Reliance"™.
For 17 years Bill quietly, unassumingly and selflessly collected unwanted tools donated by local (and not so local) people, for refurbishment and onward transport to African Countries, to help people in those countries, build sustainable livelihoods, bring about effective and sustainable change to trades people and their communities, so helping to reduce poverty.
This was a fantastic achievement by Bill, and the award a great recognition for Bill and of his work
Sadly, Bill recently lost his battle against Cancer "“ a great loss to the Club, to his family and of his Charity work.
However, the work which Bill began in Glossop for "˜Tools for Self Reliance"™ will continue "“ a fine and fitting legacy by which to remember Bill.
Please note the new telephone contact number on the poster below and if you do have any unwanted tools to donate, please contact us.
