Breakfast Meeting 15th August
15/08/2018PUBLISHED: Wednesday 11th July 2018
You are warmly welcomed to join us at our Breakfast meeting. Come along and find more about Rotary and our club. Meetings start at 7.30am and include either a Full English Breakfast or Continental choice.
This week our speaker is Patrick Brady from Bridges to Prosperity.
Bridges to Prosperity was founded in the USA in 2001 and has worked with communities in 18 countries to build more than 170 pedestrian bridges which serve more than 750,000 people by providing safe access over impassable rivers.
Many members of rural communities live largely a walking world, and when rivers swell, journeys to school, work, or visits to a doctor can become life threatening without a bridge to cross. Bridges make it possible for all people throughout the world's rural communities to safely and consistently connect to services and opportunities that are critical for leading healthy and productive lives.
