Speaker Meeting 3rd July 2017

Stephanie Cook - Church Wilne Inner Wheel President

The Rotary Club of Church Wilne recently welcomed Stephanie Cook, the President of Church Wilne Inner Wheel to its speaker evening. She gave a fascinating talk, charting her journey from Blackburn to London and finally settling in Derby, home of Rolls Royce where she works in HR. Supporting expatriates, working in many countries spread across the world. She told the club about once sharing a train carriage with Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his entourage, when such things were possible. Stephanie was introduced to Inner Wheel through her daughter's friends whose mothers were in Inner Wheel.

The first event she was involved in was the Rotary Club of Church Wilne Charity Horse Ride. She was touched by the kindness of the members of Inner wheel and the welcome from Rotary. Several hundred cups of tea were made at the refreshment tent. Everyone in the Rotary and Inner Wheel Club feeling like a good friend, helping the local community.

In light of past and recent events, feeling protective of family, her daughter and other children in dangerous situations, this year Inner Wheel President Stephanie's Chosen Charity will be "Action for Children". To support such charities, Club events are held every month. For the coming year these include; Charity Horse Ride; Buddy the Musical at the Duchess Theatre; Bonfire Night, the Senior Citizens Tea Party, County Show etc. New members and support for our Clubs are always welcome. A final thought "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away".
