Welwyn Hatfield’s Rotary clubs held an awards evening following their annual walking fundraiser earlier this year.

The borough’s mayor Lynne Sparks was among those attending, and after giving a speech praising the contributions of local charities, she presented awards to outstanding participants.

Former Welwyn Hatfield Times editor Terry Mitchinson, who nominated Willow as his chosen cause, scooped the prize for most money raised.

The event involves raising money for chosen charities with a portion going to WGC and Hatfield Rotary clubs.

The awards meeting last week was chaired by WGC Rotary Club’s acting president, Andy Forrow, who said: “What Rotary needs to continue its support for local, national and international good causes is increased membership.

“All of us need to get out and share the benefits of Rotary to our communities. Please go out and talk over what you have heard with families and friends.”

Andy also encouraged people to look into next year’s event, scheduled for April 29, details of which can be found on its website http://www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/page.php?PgID=252088&ClubID=581.
