A host of Santas waiting to start their Run

The Santa Run may be over, and what a great success it was (over 30,000 raised for various charities with more to come), but if you want to add to this sum you can still donate.

Will McInerney, a Rotary Peace Scholar

Will McInerney

Will McInerney

Will hails from North Carolina, USA but he is at present based at Bradford University (W. Yorks). Deputy District Governor Greg Wilkinson brought Will to our meeting on 6 December 2016 to let us hear of the work that he does. He emphasised the importance of the story in giving people their culture and their place in life. Sometimes the storytelling may be used for violence and his job is to use story- telling in turning people away from conflict. This is achieved by substituting empathy for suspicion and he has worked in schools in several middle-eastern countries including Israel and Egypt.
As well as being a UK Rotary Peace fellow, Will is a US State Department Program Fellow and (although his talk was all in prose) an award-winning spoken poet.

President's message:-

President 2016/2017We are 'Ordinary people doing Extraordinary Things'. Together we can give back something to the world and at the same time, have fun and enjoy the fellowship and support of each other. Sandra Tucker
