Speakers and Awards Evening

The Rotary Club of Gibraltar held its annual Vocational Award Presentations and Speakers Party on Tuesday 20th May at the Royal Calpe.

The Rotarians offer these annual awards in recognition of people in our community worthy of special attention. The three awards presented on the evening covered the categories of, ‘a young person’, ‘a civil or public servant’, and ‘an Elder’.
Also joining the gathering were many of the Speakers who come along to Rotary weekly meetings and help make these so interesting. Over the course of the last twelve months the Club has had the pleasure of being enlightened on a wide range of subjects, too many to mention!
The Civil Servant Award was presented to Charlene Figueras from Gibraltar Youth Services.
Some of the youngsters also attended. They will be assisting Rotary Members during the forthcoming Flag Day.
Leah Bisset was presented with the Youth Award for her fundraising activities.
Leah raises funds for Leukaemia and other charities.
The Honoured Elder Award was presented to Mario Garcia.
Mr. Garcia received the award in recognition of his work as a chess tutor.
