A RO­TAR­IAN has been pre­sented with the move­ment’s high­est award. Dr Malcolm Brook was pre­sented with the Paul Har­ris Fel­low­ship by Ash­ford Ro­tary Club pres­i­dent Dr Stu­art McRae. The Paul Har­ris Fel­low­ship is the high­est award that can be given to a Ro­tar­ian. The award, named af­ter the founder of Ro­tary, is given to se­nior Ro­tar­i­ans for “ex­cep­tional ser­vice” to the move­ment. In ad­di­tion to his ser­vice within Ro­tary, Dr Brook is also the chair­man of the League of Friends of the William Har­vey Hospi­tal. The Friends have raised hun­dreds of thou­sands of pounds for the Ash­ford hospi­tal over the years. Dr Brook and his wife Kitty are also closely con­nected with the Umtha We­langa char­ity which is a com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion that helps or­phans, mainly in­fected with or af­fected by Aids, in the sprawl­ing town­ship of Khayelit­sha in Cape Town, South Africa.
