Our international aims for the club in 2019 – 20 are to :-
• To continue to support Water Box (World Water Works) and School in a Bag
• To maintain flexibility within the club to respond to disasters

When international disasters are identified we also may do quick practical fund raising for example bucket collections outside local stores or supermarkets.
This year our President has nominated Global Sight Solutions as his charity so we will be raising money to support this very worthy project. . In addition to raising money, by the end of the year it is hoped that awareness has been raised both within the club and locally, of the work of Global Sight Solutions.
My role as International Chairman is to ensure that any information cascaded to the club is shared widely and a timely manner and organise the club members when called upon to give practical help. It is important that in addition to the identified issues we remain able to react to requests for help whenever possible.
