Uppingham is a hive of activity in all areas these days including its community and business. The Rotary Club of Uppingham held its annual Presidents’ Night and used the opportunity to raise money for good causes, as it support a number of charities and development undertakings locally and abroad.
Last Saturday (18th April 2015) current Rotary Club of Uppingham President Margaret Simpson, welcomed many honoured and invited guests to the Black Tie evening, held at the Falcon Hotel, in Uppingham.
Honoured guest had the pleasure of hearing the guest speaker, local Rutland farmer, Director and new High Sheriff of Rutland, Andrew Brown and his wife, seen here with Uppingham Rotary Club President Margaret Simpson (first from the right), Robert Wills and his wife Falcon Hotel owner (middle).
Andrew shared with guests the background and history to the role of High Sheriff of Rutland and some of his experiences so far, both as he prepared to take on the role and about his farm .
The well attended event raised just under over £400 for charity through its Grand Charity Raffle, donations to which were made by a number of local businesses.
Businesses that contribute to their local community in this and many others way can be proud of their rounded approach to connecting business with its community and environment.
Other guests included representatives from a number of other Rotary clubs across the midlands, local and regional business people
Open Mind is proud to be involved with the Rotary Club of Uppingham in this way.
