Rotarians go Wombling

Sarita and her friend the Womble

Past president Sarita Shah and current president Kartar Singh Bring went Wombling with the South Leicestershire Litter Wombles.

Sarita had done so before and was able to advise Kartar who reported later: “The litter pick went really well and after using the litter picker for an hour and a half I feel that I have become more technically proficient and effective in using it!”

Kartar and Sarita both thanked the Wombles, on behalf of Rotary, for all they do to improve our environment and for the loan of equipment.

You can read see how Kartar and Sarita got on by visiting the South Leicestershire Litter Wombles Facebook page here You’ll need to scroll down to their posting of August 19.

Novus Rotary introduced the Wombles to the charity. Since then, the litter-pickers have collected many tonnes of aluminium which will be sold to finance providing helipads for various hospitals around the UK so air ambulances can land onsite, thereby saving even more lives.

Novus has a policy of holding a variety of meetings, including by Zoom, over a meal and by undertaking social activities like the litter-picking. If you would like to know more, please use the Contact Us button on this page to e-mail
