Congratulations to Norfolk Island Rotary member Lindsay Ford who was awarded the prestigious Rotary International award for Distinguished Service in early November 2023.

Lindsay said “I was very proud to receive on Saturday Night, The Rotary Foundation highest award, Distinguished Service Award, from Past Rotary International President, and current Rotary Foundation Chairman, Barry Rassin.

It was an honour for me, an acknowledgment for my Wife Alison, my Norfolk Island Rotary Club, my Rotary District 9910, and for every person who has supported and walked this Rotary Journey with me.
The Rotary Foundation is by far the most outstanding NGO in the World, giving Hope, opportunities, and changing Lives for so many.
Be guaranteed that 100% of funds raised goes to either Local Projects or in the case of International Projects, 93% goes to the coal face of the Project, unmatched by others.
Rotary is spearheading the eradication of Polio from the word, from 360,000 cases each year, at a high point to now, just 10 worldwide, we are so close.
Thank You, and please support the Rotary Foundation as your charity of choice.”
