President Kartar welcomes you to our website, to Novus and to Rotary

Hospitals chaplain Kartar Singh Bring has become the 13th president of the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus

He took over from Sarita Shah on July 1, 2021 as the world was beginning to adjust to the new normal that Covid has caused.

President Kartar Singh Bring welcomes you to the Novus website

Visiting the several hospitals across the Midlands where he is lead chaplain —the only Sikh to hold that position in the UK — during the pandemic, he has helped countless families from many different faith backgrounds through tragic circumstances.

Kartar joined Leicester Novus in 2019 when the club developed a Peace Garden at Falcons Primary School, the Sikh-ethos primary school where he is a governor.

That, though, was not his first acquaintance with Rotary.

While a student at Beauchamp College, Oadby, he took part in the Rotary project Youth Speaks which helps secondary-school students gain the confidence to speak in public.

Taking office in July, Kartar stressed that he wanted the club to concentrate on Fellowship and Service — the watchwords of Rotary International — during his year in office.

Covid did not prevent Novus from its programme of weekly meetings during Sarita’s year but it did delay the handing-over of his chain of office until a President’s Afternoon was held in the garden of a member.
