The Award is given for exceptional active service to The Rotary Foundation.

At the D1090 District Assembly 2009, District Governor Malcolm Boddington presented to Rotarian Peter Jones of RC Haddenham a Foundation Distinguished Service award.  

Each year, the Trustees recognise up to 50 Rotarians worldwide for their outstanding efforts on behalf of The Rotary Foundation with such an award. Peter has travelled extensively in Africa, intiating many District Grant projects

A standing ovation was given to Peter by the 240+ Rotarian's present at the assembly.
