A new way to get involved with the powerful work of the humanitarian organisation Rotary International is being brought to Cornwall through a committed team who have been touched by issues both at home and abroad.

Rotary Evolution is the working title of a satellite club set up by Truro Rotary, which aims to offer a ‘light-touch way’ of getting involved with Rotary and offer service to communities.

The group aims to meet on the first Saturday morning of each month, at venues in the Truro area, with themed talks and presentations about issues that members have been touched by.

The first open meeting is being held at the Globe Coffee Shop, Frances Street, on Saturday, September 6 from 10.30am to 12noon. It will cover the topic of food poverty, and will feature a talk by community chef Prosenjit “Sanjay” Kumar, senior sous-chef at Headland Hotel in Newquay.
