Leigh Rotarians were particularly pleased to celebrate Frank Rothwells 55 years as a member of the Leigh Club at their Christmas Lunch. Club President, Alan Smallshaw presented Frank with a certificate from Donna Wallbank, President of RIBI and a letter of congratulations from the Rotary International President, Mark Maloney.
Frank Rothwell has had a very distinguished life of Service Above Self, a motto which he often uses and which certainly applies to his life of helping others. Frank served for many years as a JP, has been awarded an MBE and a Paul Harris Sapphire. He is well known in District for his involvement with Rotary Foundation and is still as enthusiastic as ever in his support for this charity.
Frank Rothwell has been involved in many organisations, always holding the most senior posts of Chairman or President and after 55 years in Leigh Rotary is still one of the most regular attenders! His enthusiasm for Rotary has spread through his family with daughter Gillian Bromley, brother Melvyn and Melvyns son David all active members, all Past Presidents and all having been awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship what a tremendous Rotary Family, with a total of over 120 years membership!
