Every year Rotary hosts the Champions Awards, celebrating the outstanding humanitarian and community service conducted by volunteers from across Great Britain and Ireland.

This year, seven Rotary members have been  crowned Champions of Change, alongside seven Community Champions, members of the public whose efforts have been recognised by their local Rotary club.

One of the winners was Farnborough Rotary member Katy Harris.

Katy has given outstanding commitment to a school project in Uganda, giving children living in extreme poverty the opportunity to break out of the cycle and fulfil their potential.

She has been working on the project for six years through the UK charity Karuna Action and using her professional skills as a retired headteacher, has delivered teacher and leadership training to schools in desperately impoverished areas.

These activities have dramatically raised education standards and improved the life chances of the pupils, with many going on to become doctors, solicitors and teachers themselves.

The presentation took place in Nottingham of Friday 10th of May
