Call My Bluff

The speakers at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 3rd September were three of their own members, Trevor Hughes, Tim Keegan and Ruth Otway who presented their own version of ‘Call My Bluff’ which used mystery objects rather than obscure words.

They gave three different definitions of the objects of which only one was true. There was a prize for the Rotarian who got the most correct answers.

President Ken Gibson presented a cheque for the amount recently collected on behalf of Child Bereavement.

Trevor Monkman

The speaker at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 13th August was Trevor Monkman, one of our own members, who gave his ‘Job Talk’ telling us about his working life prior to retirement.

Starting work in 1950 and following his National Service in the RAF servicing Vulcan bombers and Canberra aircraft, he went to work as an electrical engineer in a number of companies including GEC, North Eastern Electric Board and British Steel eventually ending in charge of high voltage equipment, up to 66,000kv, at the Redcar iron works.

The British Association for Immediate Care

The speakers at the meeting of Kendal Rotary on 6th August were Dr Daniel Alberts and Dr Douglas Davies who came to enlighten the club about BASICS (The British Association for Immediate Care).

It began in 1977 and is now country wide and works in conjunction with the Ambulance Service and the Air Ambulance and these two doctors are in the process of establishing a local version of the charity. 

They currently have nine volunteer doctors and a number of paramedics on their books who can be called to help at road traffic accidents. The charity is self-funded and is currently looking for help in non-clinical roles.
