Rotary in our District

Cheryle Berry
DG Cheryle Berry

Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland is divided into ‘Districts’, and ours is called District 1220, including parts of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Please visit our District website for more information.

 

Our current District Governor (2018-2019) is the dynamic and inspirational Cheryle Berry M.B.E from the Clay Cross club in Derbyshire.

To add to Cheryle’s impressive list of lifetime achievements, including being a medical Doctor, she has been working recently with Virtual College to bring to us the campaign, ‘Prepared to Save a Life’ – a free online life-saving course. It is a truly innovative way to help each and every one of us be a potential life-saver.

Please visit Virtual College today and register to do this free training, supporting Cheryle’s fantastic innovation and potentially saving the lives of those around you.


 

Our District Governor Elect (DGE) – or our next governor – is David Hood from the Wirksworth Club.

Every year, we have a District Conference, which features inspirational speakers and visitors from around the globe. Register here to join us in Scarborough on 4th-6th October 2019!

Please watch the video below, which was produced by one of our club members, Alicia Reade to promote the upcoming conference. The song was specially written and performed by Alicia, with contributions from club members across our district! The video also features our Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland President Elect, Donna Wallberg, and District Governors Elect from the whole region, including our own DGE, David Hood. It was David who requested the Scottish feel to the song in order to promote his upcoming conference, being a proud Scot!

Rotary Amber Valley really have hit really the heights raising funds for charity.

A very nervous Rotarian Roger Summers (pictured) last Saturday abseiled the 213 foot, 16th. century tower at Derby Cathedral.

In a leap of faith with others across the community, the sponsored abseil raising money for a local charity ‘When you wish upon a star.’

The charity grants the wishes of children between the ages of 2 – 16, living with life threatening illness. Since 1990 they have granted over 17,000 wonderful Wishes, creating precious memories, and transforming the lives of some courageous children and their families.

Watch this space for the total monies raised by Roger and his high flying colleagues.

A big well done to past 1220 District Governor Roger who was no doubt pleased to get his feet back in the ground.
