Debs Edwards, Mayor of Reading visits Club On 19th of February 2019, the Club was honoured to have as its guest the Mayor of Reading. It was an appropriate visit as she had acted as starter at the latest Santa Run, which is the fourth to be organised by the Rotary Club of Reading. With most moneys in, £5,000 is going to be given to each of Footsteps and Macmillans with further sums available for distribution to other local charities. Also, as a separate project, Reading Rotary Club has in the last few weeks completed the design, construction and fitting out of a house to accommodate 12 families on behalf of Berkshire Women’s Aid, which is also one of the Mayor’s chosen charities.
Mrs Edwards then ran through the most memorable of her 350 engagements to date, a programme which would exhaust most people but not our Mayor.
