Some of the initiatives during Kam’s year in
office were:

  • Raising more than £2,000 for mental health
    and Mercy Malaysia charities.
  • Hosting the March Regional Meeting and
    receiving positive comments.
  • Bringing new members to the club.
  • Participating at a service to mark the
    centenary of the end of the first world war,
    laying a wreath at the Mansfield Civic
    Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.
  • Buying an official roof slate with the
    club’s name inscribed after a summer trip
    to Wentworth Woodhouse to help with the
    preservation of the grand house in South

Kam continued to support and
undertake some of our planned initiatives.
What a triumph! The success exceeded
her expectations, despite her personal
circumstances.   She said afterwards “I am truly grateful for
the support and friendships throughout.
