She is shown below with Anne Wilson from the RC of Cheltenham Sunrise, Lynn Withy from the RC of Swindon Thamesdown, and Richard Walton - the Professor! - President of the RC of Bredon Hill.
Jan joined a number of Rotarians who took part in the Worcester 'Flash Freeze'. This was one of a number of similar events that took place across the country to promote the 'End polio Now'cam. A video can be seen in our 'Club News' section or by following this link - 'Flash Freeze'.

Jan took part in The Rotary Club of Bristol's Big Race for the Future at Durdam Downs on Sunday 8th September. The race raised money for robotic surgery for prostate cancer - hence one of the runners pictured is dressed as a robot!

She is proudly wearing her "I did it!" badge in her photo with President Ron Stagg.
Friday 6th September Jan took part in Question Time. This is an event organised by the Rotary Club of Worcester Severn, and this was the fifth time that they had put this event on. It was in aid of Acorns Children's Hospice and it raised £6000, so congratulations to them on a wonderful effort.

On Monday 2nd September Jan visited the Rotary Club of Royal Wootton Bassett Town. She is photographed here with President Elect Ceri and Staff Sergeant Ian and Major TA who were speaking at the Club. Hands up if you think the fact that Jan visited the club when men in uniform were present was an accident.... No, I didn't think so either.
Jan spent the first day of September attending the Charity Raft Race in Monmouth which went down down the River Wye. She is shown with the Mayor of Monmouth and President Jenny Green from the RC of Monmouth, the participants from the RC of Stonehouse, the 'winning' Rotary team from the RC of Hereford Marches (they were second overall), and a random group who believe it or not were about to take part in the race!
