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.
