The Rotaract Clubs in London joined with Clubs from Kent, from Germany and Italy for their second Annual Conference at Kings College London on 14 May 2016.
The event was opened by District Governor Nominee Mike Hodge (above), as our Governor and Governor Elect were tied up with duties at RIBI, and the programme got under way. With talks on Leadership, Community Action, Public Speaking, Food Cycle – the answer to food waste, there was a full day for the members. In the afternoon, we had a talk on personal motivation from the World Record Holder for running a Marathon with 100lb backpack! Add to that, specific training for the Club Officers, and it was going to be a full day.
Not daunted, the Rotaractors found time to embark on a Service Project in the Strand, in Central London, with groups having a Super-Rotaractor wearing a specially designed cape undertaking random #Rotaractsofkindness.
Finally, we had awards, and the Rotarian of the Year Award was won by Assistant Governor Chris Wyatt, who had worked so hard on the formation of the Rotaract Club of Wandsworth.
In all a most enjoyable day was had by all, and we are looking forward to next year’s conference!
