Grantham sunrisers receive prestigious award
The Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club has been awarded with a Rotary International Presidential Citation for its work in 2017/18.
The award was handed out by Rotary assistant governor for the district Peter Berry at the club’s breakfast meeting on Thursday.
Lez Jones, who was president at the time, said: “We have been extremely active in working with the local community and supporting local people, groups and organisations.
“We have hit and exceeded all targets set by Rotary Central, including donating over £2,000 to Rotary Foundation and donations to End Polio Now, but mostly it is for our work in the community.”
Current president Maggie Welton added: “Our members put in a lot of man hours and although we are not a club that strives to achieve awards, it is fitting recognition.”
