Rotarian Richard Hovey recently became the 75th president of the Rotary Club of Sandbach. At the lunchtime meeting Rotarian Andy Wilkie, the retiring president, handed over the chain of office and Rotarian David Barringer became president-elect.
Andy Wilkie said he had enjoyed his year, particularly the fellowship within the club, and of course had had the added pleasure of inducting his daughter as a member. He thanked the committee chairmen and others for their support and who had worked so hard during the year. His chosen charities were "Sandbach & District Talking Newspaper" and "Samaritans".
Rtn. Keith Ludlam, the long serving member of our club, thanked Rtn. Andy for a successful year and said that the fellowship and friendship was excellent.
The incoming president, Richard Hovey - taking on this office for the third time - thanked Rotarian Andy for his service to the club over the past year. He said that his chosen charity would be "Rise Against Hunger" and any fundraising would contribute towards a meal-pack project which the club plans to take part in next year to support the charity. The charity is a large international non-profit-making organisation which distributes food and life-changing aid to the vulnerable in over 70 countries all over the world.
