Visiting London's Air Ambulance

Visiting London's Air Ambulance A group of Rotarians travelled to Whitechapel in East London on Friday 25 August 2017 to see the London Rotarian's Helivan and to have a closer look at one of the two London's Air Ambulance Helicopters. The Helivan was safely locked away in a secure car park whilst it (and its driver) were having a day off. The Helicopter on the roof landing pad of the London Hospital however was not having a day off, and was called into action whilst the visit was taking place. Our group curtailed their session and stood aside; from the initial phone call to take-off was timed at 4 minutes. With a 10 minute journey time to the London Orbital Motorway, that allows an enormous area and a population of 9 million people to be covered at great speed.

Kensington and Chelsea on TV

Kensington and Chelsea on TV The Rotary Club of Kensington and Chelsea was featured on German Television on 20 August 2017. The Club featured in the EuropaMagazin programme broadcast on the Das Erste channel reporting on the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the wealth differences in the local community and how the community was coping with the disaster. A local resident was interviewed, and a community social worker before the reporter turned to the local Rotary Club, meeting in a nearby hotel. Rotary was shown as an organisation concerned with the problems in the community and doing work that was needed by the residents. Whilst the reporter emphasised the differences of wealth in the community, Rotary emphasised that everyone - regardless of their wealth - was willing to do their bit. Well done Kensington and Chelsea - next time it will hopefully be a UK television channel.... | Read more about Kensington and Chelsea on TV | Added 4 weeks ago

As signified by the motto Service Above Self, the main objective of Rotary is service in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
