Welcome to the website of the Rotary Club of Lewisham and Penge.
My Name is Tony Anaka and I joined Lewisham & Penge Rotary club in 2015 and have now been privileged to be elected as the Club President for year 2016/2017: with the Club Council & experienced Rotarians, I am sure I will be supported with help to move the Club forward in the next 12 months.
I came to the UK in 1979 from Nigeria and studied banking. After completing my banking/finance studies, I did Post Graduate Diploma in Management Studies (DMS) at Thames Polytechnic, Woolwich, now better known as the University of Greenwich and graduated in 1985.
Following my graduation, I did various jobs including security, and property management etc in West End and Bloomsbury Square in London.
I started New Horizons Estate Agency with a business partner in 1999 based in Hithergreen, London SE13. but ceased trading in June 2009. In July 2009,I commenced MyHome Estate Agents with my wife; based in Springbank Road Hithergreen the business has grown and we now employ 3 staff.
The Rotary motto of Service above Self requires that we all work together to help the Community.
I and all members will work hard to recruit new and younger members who are still active in their business lives.
Some of the charities, amongst others, we will be supporting in 2016/2017:
(1)The Stroke Association.
(2)The Ravensbourne Trust"¦.A Local charity based in Catford.
(3)Kids out (Drumbeat Special School, Downham).
(4)The lavender Trust (The Mayor of Lewisham’s charity).
(5)St Christopher’s Hospice
(6)London air Ambulance.
(7)End Polio now (World wide).
We aim to have interesting speakers during my year. Please check our Club website to see all the speakers lined up.
The first event we will be supporting will be at Lewisham Peoples Day on 09/07/2016 to raise money for Stroke Association and we hope to see you there.
We meet every Monday at Bromley Court Hotel for a meal and often have an interesting speaker.
