Charity fund raisers from Dover Grammar School for Girls, members of the school’s Interact Club, were among the seven guests entertained at a meeting on Thursday, September 12, of Dover Rotary Club at The Leaf Hotel, Whitfield.
Interact president Hannah McNeill and fellow member Megan Anderton told of the “interesting experience” they enjoyed when attending a Rotary-sponsored RYLA scheme (Rotary Youth Leadership Award). Hannah outlined the range of events in which they took part and Megan (who wants to join the Royal Navy) spoke of the teamwork activities.
At the end of their presentation they revealed their Interact Club had raised £1,682 for three charities with a range of social events.
The girls then presented cheques of £600 each to the other guests, the representatives of Porchlight and Demelza House. The third charity to benefit will be the Rotary-supported charity Team Malawi.
