The winners will be presented with their awards by National Council for Voluntary Organisations’ Chair Peter Kellner and President Denis Spiller.

They have all been chosen for outstanding and inspirational work at home and abroad.

Any Rotary member can aspire to become a champion.

He only considered Rotary when he was coming up to retirement and wanted to give something back to society.

That was five years ago and since then he has actively raised £25,000 for his club and taken on many demanding roles including club president and is currently the treasurer.

Andrew realised that Rotary in the area needed some energy to move it forward.

He took a particular interest in membership and introduced new approaches to his club and beyond.

Brendan joined Mallow Rotary in 2014 and soon saw that the club required rejuvenating to make it a vibrant club for the future.

Declining numbers and age profile were a concern. To overcome those difficulties a way forward had to be developed without marginalising the existing membership.

In the space of a year, he brought in 13 new members with more potential new people coming on board.
