Eleanor Lynch’s Tanzania Talk
Westholme student, Eleanor Lynch gave a powerpoint presentation at the Marriott Hotel, Preston to thirty members of the Rotary Club on her planned expedition to Tanzania. Eleanor had been invited by rotarian Bill Bowker who had been intrigued to receive a request for sponsorship for the trip so promptly visited her and suggested she give a presentation to the Rotary Club.
Shaun Ashworth, Youth Opportunities Officer, was extremely helpful with setting up the IT system and giving Eleanor tips of what to expect from the audience. After a warm introduction from President Howard Jackson, Eleanor gave a polished talk on her planned trip and then answered many questions from an enthusiatic audience. To complete a fantastic evening Eleanor was presented with a cheque for £100 by President Jackson and asked to come back and give a talk about her expedition on her return.
