Great year for Rotarians
Cambuslang Rotary Club members have had their horizons broadened on a variety of topics this session by a number of wide and varied guests speakers.
Speaker secretary Mike Netten has ensured his fellow Rotarians have been educated and entertained this session with an excellent selection of visitors.
The start of May brought a return visit from local GP Dr Kieran Dinwoodie who spoke about his year working with his wife Sarah in Uganda.
On May 20, Alastair Firth, a member of the club, gave an account of his recent trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
The final speaker of the month was Eddie McConnell from Sense Scotland. This year is the 30th anniversary of Sense Scotland, a charity which has grown from a small group of seven families in 1985 to an organisation which supports 700 individuals and 500 families throughout Scotland.
The club heard about the exciting plans to expand services in South Lanarkshire with the opening of a new TouchBase Centre in Hamilton.
Some of the proceeds from the club’s recent sportsman’s dinner have been allocated to this charity so this was an excellent opportunity for Rotarians to hear about the good work they do.
