Speaker

It's been 20 weeks now since we last met at the Carlton Park Hotel and for almost every week we have held a meeting on Zoom.
A few weeks back we tried our first Speaker Meeting using Zoom when Professor Derick Rosario provided an excellent and informative presentation about the work of the Sheffield and District Urostomy Association.

At our Speaker Meeting last week we had an interesting talk from Lucy Gray, Community Fundraiser for the British Red Cross. She talked about the services that the organization delivers to the community. Some we were very familiar with but others came as a bit of a surprise. We thanked Lucy for a very interesting and informative presentation.

Last Thursday was a speaker meeting and the speaker was Kat from the charity Victim Support ( https://www.victimsupport.org.uk/ ). As an independent charity, Victim Support works towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and the respect they deserve.

Last Thursday was a Speaker Meeting and the subject was Slavery and People Trafficking. The presentation was given by Sheena Field of the Medaille Trust. Sheena explained the work of the Trust and its aims. Some of the facts she gave us were very surprising, not least the fact that UK Nationals are the most commonly reported victims in the UK followed by Albanian and Vietnamese.

Last Thursday was a Speaker Meeting and the talk was given by our very own Ann Ogley. When most of us think of a holiday we picture ourselves lying on a sun-soaked beach sipping our favourite cocktail.

On 25th February our guest speaker was Tony Stewart, Chairman of Rotherham United Football Club and he was accompanied by Paul Douglas (CEO) and John Breckin (Ex-player}. Tony talked about their future plans for the Club and without giving too much away, about their thinking behind the recent changes in Manager.
