The Rotary Club of Gibraltar was honoured last Tuesday with a visit from three soldiers seriously injured in Afghanistan. The soldiers, Ben Parkinson, Andy Allen and Jake Barnett were introduced by Rotarian and Royal British Legion Chairman, Mr Momy Levy to a loud round of applause. Also present was well known local personality and British legion member Mr Pepe Fabre.
Rotarian President, Mr Julian Risso thanked and praised the soldiers for all their efforts. When it was announced that Jake Barnett had just turned 20 years old the previous day all Rotarians present sang Happy Birthday.
Mr George Williams, his wife Joanne and Mr Gordon Vickers, invited the three soldiers, their families and Mr Pepe Fabre to dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant and to lunch on Saturday at 14 on the Quay.
