Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

RYLA candidates attended a week long course at Grafham Water, Cambridgshire. The whole group are pictured above. Pushing the boundaries of thinking under pressure coupled with workshops to improve self-esteem were two of the goals of the event. Activities included orienteering at the dead of night, kayaking, and other tasks to challenge both physical and mental capacity of candidates.

Kim Francis was invited to attend by the Leicester Rotary club and is pictured below with President Paul. Subsequently she gave an enthusiastic presentation, describing her ordeal to the members at a weekly meeting.
