Rotary stalwart given prestigious award

A CHARITY stalwart has been presented with a prestigious award in recognition of his philantrophy.

Martin Collins, who has been a member of Brookmans Park Rotary Club for the past eight years, was awarded the coveted Paul Harris Fellowship earlier month.

He earned the award, the highest accolade that one can receive in Rotary, in acknowledgement of his “valued guidance and expertise”.

Club president Steve Northcott, who handed Martin his gong, praised the “huge” amount of energy and time that Martin had given to Rotary.

Steve also described him as being “a mover and a shaker; not a talker, but a doer”.
