A Letchworth Howard Rotary Club member has been awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship, one of the organisation's highest honours, during a surprise ceremony at his own home
Colin Green and his wife Karen were hosting the club’s end of Rotary year handover event in their garden when he was unexpectedly called upon by the club’s outgoing president David Glanville.
David announced that Rotary International has agreed to a club proposal that Colin be honoured with the prestigious award in recognition for his work for Rotary and fundraising over the last 30 years.
The club also welcomed Lisa Seccombe of Garden House Hospice Care to the presentation, where she was given a cheque for £3,035 as a result of Letchworth Howard fundraising events.
She said: “We’re very blessed with all the Rotary groups in our area, and this club is just amazing,” said Lisa.
“The hospice wouldn’t be there without people like you.”
