Second time around for new Rotary president
A CLUB which raised more than £20,000 for charity last year has a new president.
Mike Leyland is serving for the second time as president of Misbourne Matins Rotary Club, taking over the reigns from Sue Walton.
A founder member, Mr Leyland previously served as president in 2004/2005.
The club, of which just under half its members are female, have met for one hour, once a week for breakfast at the Bull Hotel, Oxford Road, Gerrards Cross for the past 18 years.
Mr Leyland admitted he felt a degree of responsibility but added: “At the end of the day you feel it’s important you do your best because when you are raising all this money, you want to make sure it’s done properly. To represent the Rotary is a bit worrying but it’s also an honour.”
The club has supported charities such as the Iain Rennie Hospice, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and Scannappeal.
It has also funded visits from the Life Bus STOKE POGES: Police are appealing for information following a garage break in.
