Launch of Calvert Trust Rescue Boat

During the 2012-2013 Rotary Year this District raised about £20,000 to purchase a Rescue Boat for the Calvert Trust based near Bassenthwaite.  The boat was launched in the presence of Sir Tony Cunningham MP, Community Dignatories, Rotarians and friends at Bassenthwaite on August 30th.

Local MP Sir Tony Cunningham travelled overnight from Westminster to be with us and his address really summed up why 'We're for Communities'.  Sir Tony's words can be viewed by following this link.
