The Rotary Club of Market Rasen changed their meeting venue to the church room for a frugal lunch, using the money that normally paid for their meal to swell the funds of Rotary Foundation, the worldwide charity pot of Rotary.
It was also a chance for Sophie Wilson and Simon Blackshaw to report back on their time at the Rotary sponsored three days spent at Castleton Camp in The High Peak district of Derbyshire.
The Caistor Yarborough students were part of a group of 30 young people, aged 14 to 20 from Rotary District 1270 attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Course.
Sophie and Simon gave a presentation of their time on the course, which they had enjoyed, had made lots of new friends and had benefitted tremendously from.
Both were confident, clear and concise in their presentation and this, they said, was largely due to what they learned on the course.
And as members of the Yarborough Academy’s engineering club, they had also taken along to the meeting an Academy built robot, pictured above, which, through remote control, performed a series of tasks set by the students and the Rotarians.
