President takes to the air

Julie wing

An intrepid President of Ramsgate Rotary Club has boosted the charity funds by more than £400 in the most unusual fashion.
Julie Miller took up the challenge of wing walking on a plane high above the Essex countryside.
She said afterwards “ I recommend it to all who enjoy a challenge.”
The money was raised through individual sponsorship.

The mission of Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education & the alleviation of poverty.

One of the main ways this is done is by funding humanitarian projects in the UK and worldwide.

The charity's single biggest aim has been to eradicate polio from the world.

Elderly people and animals are to benefit from Ramsgate Rotary club under the leadership of the new President Julie Miller.
The two main charities she plans to support during her year are a local residential home and the Cinnamon Trust, which assists the elderly and terminally ill people and their pets.
The home, Wantsum Lodge will receive recreational things such as a musical sing along machine.
Julie, a retired nurse, is the second female President of the club since it was formed in 1921, taking over from Maria Blackburn, who paid tribute to all those who had supported her during the year.
At the hand over meeting, there were representative of all the five other Thanet Rotary clubs, as well as a large party from the Club’s contact club of Boulogne.
The new vice-president is Graham Larcombe.

The event, held at St George’s School not only included a tea with hand made cakes, but also various forms of entertainment with clowns in action all afternoon, together with conjurers and musical offerings from Dane Park School music students.
Community singing brought the proceedings to an end with a special rendering of the National Anthem
Transport was provided for all guests who came from various local homes and from organisations which have been connected with Rotary in the past year.
