Last night our club joined forces with the Blackwater Valley Rotary club at the Holiday Inn Farnborough, to hear a very motivating and inspirational talk given by Helene Raynsford, the young paralympian who has achieved so much in the last 8 years.

Helene spoke about her illness that left her disabled whilst at university, the challenges she faced up to, on the way to becoming a gold medal winner and she gave us a blow by blow account of how she was feeling as she won the gold medal race.  Truly inspirational..

As I mentioned she was extremely candid and over 150 rotarians and rotoractors (younger rotarians) from other local clubs came to hear her talk.

Another great night out
