Putney Rotary Club welcomes Ambassadorial Scholar from Toronto

Each year the Rotary Foundation - the world's largest educational charity fund - sponsors hundreds of students to further their studies abroad. London with its top universities is a popular destination and annually attracts over 20 students from around the world.

This Rotary year the Rotary Club of Putney is pleased to host Ambassadorial Scholar Andrea Barton from Canada. Andrea is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Brantford, just outside Toronto and will be studying Global Politics at the London School of Economics.

Andrea spoke to the club this evening about her family, her community and her plans for the year. She was joined at the meeting by her parents visiting from Canada and her older sister who works in London.

Notes to Editors

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Members carry out this work in their community and/or overseas by giving their time and their expertise.

A Rotary Club is open to men and women who are business, professional or community leaders who want to use their experience for the benefit of others. Paul Harris formed the world's first service club in Chicago on 23rd February 1905. The name Rotary is derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members' offices.
