Sadly our good friend Joe Walker died on 9th May. Joe was a lifetime Honorary Rotarian and also a Paul Harris Fellow in recognition of the work undertaken in Romania and the UK by him and his friend Danny Thompson with their charity People in Need Worldwide. 

The funeral will take place at Rotherham Crematorium on Tuesday 31 May 2022 at 2.45 pm.

Donations in memory of Joe can be made to his charity People in Need Worldwide at :-

P.S. After the funeral Rotarian Roger Green sent this message to fellow Rotarians:-

Just to let you know we raised £550 for a bench to be situated at Crookstone Barn in memory of our friend Joe.
Joe's son Marc and his wife Margaret are so pleased and touched with what we are doing.
Marc told me Joe was in the process of making a bench in memory of Tony Taylor the President of Crookstone who has recently passed and that just about sums Joe up.
After the thousands of things Joe did for everyone else I feel so privileged we can do this for him.
From the bottom of my heart thank you so much for your kindness
Roger x
