Seaburn Rotary club’s oldest and longest serving member, Randle Oliver recently received a special Rotary Award. District Governor for the North East, Jean Thompson, visited the club and presented Randle with a Special Achievement Award for services to Rotary. This year Randle celebrated his 90th birthday but this was no barrier to him once more applying his artistic talent by designing the club Christmas card for this year. This is a task he has carried out for several years and each year club members promote and sell cards throughout Wearside and Tyneside. The resulting proceeds, which over the years now add up to thousands of pounds, are donated to Rotary charities Foundation and End Polio Now. On her visit to Seaburn Jean Thompson presented president Peter Calvert with the Rotary North East Membership Award for the year 2014/2015. During that year the club had increased its membership by nine new members and set up a Satellite Club, based at The Bridges Shopping Centre.
