When members of the Rotary Club of South Holland met to celebrate their 32nd birthday they were still thinking of the less fortunate in Spalding.
As well as a talk about Canine Partners, guests at the birthday dinner heard president Bob Bradley speak about the club’s 32 years’ service to the young, elderly, ill, disabled and needy in the town.
Mr Bradley also mentioned the club’s long-term role helping rid the world of poliomyelitis, and its work with Cape Town Rotarians building a school in a South African township,
Malcolm Wells, a long-time friend of Mr Bradley, spoke about the special dogs trained by Canine Partners to help the disabled open and close doors, run washing machines and driers, go shopping, or even raise the alarm.
Mr Bradley was responding to district governor Geoff Blurton’s toast to the club. Mr Bradley’s son Jon, president of Spalding and Welland Rotary Club, brought their greetings.
