Club President

Our President this year is Anita Sharma, whose main charity is Endometriosis UK.
Our President organises a trip each year for our members and their friends. This year, President Anita organised a trip to Liverpool, with a meal at at Chinese restaurant overlooking the River Mersey. We then went on to visit Chinatown, and then onto The Albert Dock.

Who we are

Our first Membership and Development Officer at Rochdale – Lis, sees her role as two-pronged.
Firstly, to recruit new members. “I held a stall at our Rotary Club’s classic Car Show in July with leaflets and sales – but although great fun and financially positive it was no great success for membership.
However, our own members are more successful in finding members.
Secondly, I look at retention of members. Keeping them happy! We already have a thriving Book Club (usually ten members) so I started a Craft Group. It is still finding its feet but we have a wealth of talent in our Club and members are teaching members about patchwork, card making, collage and silk painting – convivial, messy and sometimes productive.”
