Well, those of you who know me well, will understand that I rarely mention soccer or even soccer players. Therefore it is with great pleasure that I break my tradition and praise Mr David Beckham for his stunning donation to the Rotary ‘END POLIO NOW’ campaign. David is a UNICEF ambassador and recently shared a […]

Inspiring Idea

GoGetFunding Project.. I like ideas that provide opportunities which give to others, this one recent idea though has a greater twist and it started a couple of days ago when a friend gave me a link to ‘KIVA’ – the site which links prospective funders with micro businesses in areas around the world, facilitating micro […]

Absolutely Brilliant

30th January 2013 by JimmyMBE No Comments

I have only been a member of Rotary since the start of 2005, although my parents encouraged me to live a life of ‘service above self’ in the community since the mid 1960’s. I have had the privilege of being involved in a ‘Rotary Foundation’ funded program, GSE as a team leader (GSE=Group Study Exchange) […]

It’s winter time, actually ‘Boxing Day’ 26th December 2009 and you may think that I have lost it when you read the following – but in a strange kind of way I thought it was inspirational – even if it was a ‘kiddies’ christmas holiday movie. I thought, what a great way to end one […]

Wonderful Welcome

Well, wonderful welcome was the first thought that came into my head when I was looking at a headline for the double ‘ww’ title. I could just as easily have been wonderful week.
