Suc­cess is plain sail­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

At a re­cent char­ter din­ner, Peter­bor­ough Or­tons Ro­tary Club awarded Mac War­wick, one of their mem­bers, a highly pres­ti­gious Paul Har­ris Fel­low­ship for his out­stand­ing work with dis­abled sailors.

Sail­abil­ity in Peter­bor­ough has now en­tered its sev­enth sea­son. Up and run­ning again they are look­ing for­ward to an­other busy and suc­cess­ful sum­mer sail­ing at Ferry Mead­ows. If you have not seen this amaz­ing project in ac­tion be­fore and would like to ex­pe­ri­ence the free­dom of sail­ing they are to be found at the Lake­side Leisure Sail­ing Club on Tues­days and Thurs­days from 10am to 5pm. They have all the kit you will need, they just need you. Why not go along and have a go, you will have a great time and I am sure you will want to come back again and again. If you have sail­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, or just want to help oth­ers sail, they are also look­ing for new helpers to join their band of over 40 ded­i­cated vol­un­teers.

It is very clear why Mac was sin­gled out for this spe­cial recog­ni­tion. He was part of the orig­i­nal Ro­tary team put to­gether in 2005 which helped to plan the set-up of Sail­abil­ity within Peter­bor­ough. He is now a trustee of Peter­brough Sail­abil­ity, the char­ity, and was trea­surer for five years. Work­ing as a vol­un­teer at Ferry Mead­ows he is an as­sis­tant in­struc­tor and “buddie” and sails ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day within the April to Oc­to­ber sail­ing sea­son. Ad­di­tion- ally he is a mem­ber of a com­mit­tee which de­cides the fine de­tail of op­er­a­tions whilst the trus­tees de­cide ac­tual pol­icy and the way ahead. Mac has al­ways been a di­rec­tor of Peter­bor­ough Sail­abil­ity the Com­pany.

On re­ceiv­ing his award Mac said “I sup­pose I am well in­volved with the whole op­er­a­tion but I love it and I get a great deal of sat­is­fac­tion from work­ing with our dis­abled friends and clients. I be­lieve this is one of the most suc­cess­ful and worth­while Ro­tary ser­vice projects within Peter­bor­ough and I am re­ally pleased that I joined that team back in 2005”.
