To anyone who ever wondered what a Rotary club is, what it does and whether it might be an opportunity for them to give back to the community as well as meet new people. The Rotary Club of Leicester is holding an open lunch meeting at the Mercure Grand Hotel on Monday 24th January at which these and more will be explained.
The open lunch will feature ‘bite-size’ speakers explaining why they joined Rotary and giving examples of the local, and international, projects they have been involved with.
