On the 16th of December 2014, eight members of RC Gibraltar drove to Jerez by the kind invitation of President Carolina of RC Jerez. We attended their lunch meeting (3pm-5pm) at the beautiful Hotel Jerez and gave a presentation from our web site showing our activities.
The main presentation was delivered by P.E. Penny, ably translated by President Carolina’s brother Pablo. Our International Chairman William gave a brief account of his progress on reinstating the Straits Club.
During the meeting President Carolina presented a cheque to the Downs Syndrome Organisation.
During our 2 hour visit we were welcomed as honoured guests and with all the photo sessions felt like visiting movie stars! Such a warm reception and the meeting of new friends made for a very enjoyable afternoon. We hope to see all our new friends at RC Jerez again soon.
On 29th November, President Jane Hart-Simmons attended a cookery event presented by Samantha Vallejo-Najera, a judge from the Spanish version of Masterchef. Proceeds from the event went to a local Downs Syndrome charity.
