President Gemma Kiddy had three jobs at our meeting on May 12.
Not only did she chair the meeting but she was the speaker, too. Her topic was The Spark Arts For Children.
Gemma, who is an arts manager, chose the registered charity as her charity of the year and has been working for it, part-time since December 2014. Her contract will come to an end in August 2016, after the Spark Festival which runs from May 23 to June 4.
She gave her audience an overview of what the charity and the festival involves. Member Jason Chauhan asked what her favourite part of the charity is and Gemma said it was the city classroom project.
Even after the applause for her talk ended, Gemma’s busy evening was not over; she drove home two of the three guests who had been visiting the Rotary Club of Leicester Novus for the first time.
Next week Gemma will not be at the club as she is heavily involved in organising a recruitment evening for the Rotaract Club of Leicester, which is for people aged from 18 to 30.
