At the final Rotary Club of Becton & District meeting of the year, became a busy event for Milford on Sea resident, Keith Williams.
In addition to being awarded a Rotary Hero Certificate by outgoing President Terry Conner he was then elected to be the incoming President of the Club to serve from July 2020 to June 2021.
Keith's Rotary Hero Award was in recognition of his work with New Forest Sewing for the NHS where he coordinated the logistics associated with the manufacture and delivery of the following protective equipment for use by the NHS and other Care Providers:
- 5,000 Scrub Bags
- 1,000 sets of Scrubs
- 20,000 Gowns
- 1,500 Headbands
Masks are once again very much in demand with already 1000 being produced and made available at various distribution points around the area.
This work has meant both Keith and his wife Christine have endured repeated long days ensuring that supply and delivery kept up with the project volunteers who have done so much for the Community.
Becton & District Rotary is a small friendly club serving the community in the wider New Milton area; if you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Club please contact Larry on firstname.lastname@example.org.
