- Our Expectations of Members
We do not expect every
member to be a Club Officer or a Director; we just ask for help with our
projects and attendance at a reasonable number of club meetings; meetings that

- Where we Meet and
During the Covid-19 Pandemic we are meeting occasionally via

sustainable difference to people's lives. "Give a man a fish and you feed him
for a day but teach him how to fish and you feed him for life". In our case
it's more like give a man a few bottles of fresh water and you can save his
life, give him a purification kit and you save him for months, dig him a well
and you save him, his family and his village for generations!
- Being Cost

society. Anyone can waste resources. We strive to be above that sort of failing
especially where we ask society to donate to the causes which we
