New Year's day @ Clitheroe Rotary
Presentation of cheques to local Charities by outgoing President Frank Brown and inauguration of President Sandy.
On a glorious day at Clitheroe Rugby Club, outgoing President Frank Brown awarded various funds totalling £10,000 to 16 local organisations as a result of Rotary efforts throughout Frank’s year. Many awards of larger sums had already been presented during the year to individual organisations like Rosemere Cancer Charity, East Lancs Hospice, and Macmillan Nurses + others from the Bonfire.
After the award ceremony, Frank passed the baton over to new President Sandy Morrison.Sandy is a Anglo-Scot who after many years travelling the world working for Unilever, settled into retirement in Clitheroe with his Wife Heather.
At the inauguration ceremony Sandy gave thanks to the extremely positive welcoming atmosphere he encountered when he joined Clitheroe Rotary 6 years ago and is both honoured and proud to take up the challenge of being President in these times of change for all voluntary organisations.
