Loading the Container at the RAH for Kionyo HIV Clinic, Kenya, 23 February

Ably led by Allan W and Neville, a team of 12 club members and friends loaded a 40 foot container with medical equipment from the old RAH. Chris organised two experienced removalists from Mitchell Removals to help us pack the container efficiently and they were a tremendous help. Watching Neville manoeuvre his tank-tracked fork lift made our day because some of the equipment was extremely heavy. Fran did a great job with the catering for the day and ensured that refreshments were readily available all the time and organised a very welcome lunch – thanks Fran. Everything went smoothly and we were able to knock off by lunchtime which was a bonus as we expected to be there all day. Thanks to Ken D for the pics. Great job everyone!

An intrepid band of workers spent two and a half hours today at Donations in Kind at Edinburgh loading Neville’s ute and trailer with medical equipment and supplies. This is stage one of the Kenya project. These goods will be loaded into a container at the RAH on 23 February and then shipped overseas with other gear waiting for us at the RAH. We loaded wheelchairs, walkers, walking aids, medical supplies and even a brand new dentist’s chair that weighed over 360Kg. A big thanks to Fran and Allan, Neville, Jude, Ken, Gavan, Vic, JP, Joan Smit and Jeff Cluse – a ring-in from Prospect RC who came to help us.

We had a lesson in law – Intercity Meeting 7 February

Former DPP and Judge, Stephen Pallaras QC, gave 66 Rotarians and friends a fascinating insight into the structure and function of his various roles as Director of Public Prosecutions. He is a very accomplished speaker and judging from the large number of questions fired at him at the end of his talk, he was a hit! The meal was good, the setting was good, the atmosphere was good – all round a very pleasant and informative evening. Well done President Gavan for organising this Group 5 function – it was well-supported by our Group 5 clubs. Thanks to Mylene for her photos too – have a look at more of them on our Facebook page.
