Charity meet-up at York Rotary
Updated: Mar 9
Keith H reports.....
On March 7th, York Rotary hosted a range of charity representatives from groups within the city of York.
Previously this event has been used as a ‘Presentation Occasion’ but this time it was an opportunity both to meet, and in particular show our appreciation of the work done by so many agencies.
All our guests used the chance to network with others, often finding points of contact where mutual support could be helpful and making new contacts. The overwhelming feeling from the occasion was the simple pleasure all felt to be able to talk to each other ‘face-to-face’ without the hindrance of Zoom - or indeed masks – preventing ‘normal’ communication.
There was no formality at all but President David and Team Leader Keith took the opportunity to express the thanks and appreciation for the work done over the last two years in the most challenging of circumstances.
Charities represented included: AgeUK, Big Futures, Door84, IDAS, Homestart, KYRA, Salvation Army, Yorchestra, Ebor Vale RDA.
The club was represented by the President, President Elect and Vice-president with four members of the Community Service Team.
