Rotary Youth Leadership Award

RYLA certificate presented to Harry Elder

President Pam Dickson and Vice-President Robert Macduff-Duncan were delighted to present a certificate to Harry Elder, who recently completed the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) 2018. Harry presented to our Rotary Club on his leadership adventures and personal development, following a week's leadership programme with the Abernethy Trust in July.

RYLA is a regular part of our work at Rotary. Each year we sponsor a young person to take part. Often it's a life-changing opportunity for the individual, bringing new friendships, new skills and confidence that take them forward in life.

Donations to Four Local Organisations

Members present a big cheque to representatives of four local organsations.

We enjoyed the company at lunch of representatives from four local charities and community groups. They received donations totalling £800 from our Club this summer. PKAVS Shopmobility, Perth & Kinross ADHD Support, Independent Advocacy Perth & Kinross and Perth Starter Pack.

The donations followed our Club's fundraising efforts during 2017/18. Thank you to all who helped us raise funds and support these important local organisations.


We meet: Every Wednesday from 12:45pm to 1:45pm.
In: The Royal George Hotel,
Tay Street / George Street
Perth, PH1 5LD
Also: Occasional evening meetings at the President's home. Visiting Rotarians welcome; see Diary and email President (on Contacts) for details.
