A New President………….

handover 2017

Allison Du Toit became President of Rushden Chichele Rotary Club on Monday
26th June 2017 at our handover evening. In handing over the chain of office David Kendrick, who had
served the club as President for the previous two years, said that it was a
pleasure and a time for celebration that the Club had inducted four lady
members in the past year and that Allison had agreed to serve as our first
Lady Rotarian President.

Allison, who comes from South Africa, has seen real poverty at first hand,
and is looking forward to developing Rushden Chichele’s charitable work both
locally and overseas. In particular she intends to support local foodbanks,
Rushden MIND, the local Mental Health charity, the Exzema Society and RedrUK
an organisation that trains aid workers for the world’s most hostile
situations.
