Joining Rotary to celebrate service given

Several members of Bridgend Soroptimists joined Bridgend Lions and other local organisations at Bridgend Rotary President’s Dinner at the Heronston Hotel.

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones was the keynote speaker and joined an illustrious panel including current President Rotarian Hopkin Joseph, President Elect for Rotary Great Britain and Ireland, Donna Wallbank, and the popular broadcaster Phil Steele. Other guests included the Mayor of Bridgend County Borough Council and Consort, Bridgend Town Mayor and Consort and the Mayor of Pencoed and Consort. The MC for the evening was Rotarian Alan Reeks who did a fine job presiding over the evening’s activities.

Mr Jones said it was a lovely event and great to see so many people supporting Rotary of Bridgend. “I was honoured to be the keynote speaker and to be able to share some stories about my time as First Minister of Wales.”

At the end of the evening there was a raffle with the proceeds going towards the club sponsored bike ride to raise funds via REMIT to provide clean water in Tanzania.
