International Meeting

There is one advantage to virtual meetings - we can include people from many places.

At this meeting, our speaker was in Leatherhead, one of our members is in Thailand, and we had a guest from our our twinned Rotary Club of Aschaffenburg-Schönbusch in Germany.

We heard about the excellent work done by Global Sight Solutions, a charity that establishes eye hospitals in the developing world to treat avoidable blindness. It was started by a Rotary club and is supported by Rotary funding and volunteers.

Many of our members are donating the money that we would have spent on lunch to our Trust Fund. The first donation from the fund went to Perth and Kinross Foodbank..
