Assistant Governor Mary and husband Huw received a great welcome at
Pembroke Rotary recently when they came to give a presentation on the
Rotary Ride in India in January. 2400km were covered in a trip that
lasted 14 days between Mumbai to Mangalore.
This is the third year the event has taken place raising more than $75,000 for the Rotary Foundation in India.
Mary and Huw visited 5 Rotary Districts and 15 Rotary Clubs whilst riding with 25 Rotarians from all across the Globe. They were from Canada, India Switzerland, Norway Australia, Tasmania, England and of course Mary and Huw from Wales.
Whilst out there they visited many schools and hospital projects and
this resulted in them raising £1200 for the schools they visited.
Ironically Mary’s great Uncle gave money to start an orphanage when he was in the Indian Army in the early 1900s. They had some wonderful photos from this period which was their inspiration for visiting India.
