Speaker 16th March - Tommy Quick
Tommy is a survivor of childhood stroke. He was only 12 years old when he was one of the 300 to 500 babies and children who have a stroke each year. His life was changed forever as he had to relearn how to do the most basic tasks and his communications skills and processing speed were also affected.
Tommy visited our club and was a guest speaker just before he set off pre-covid on a 3000km bike ride raising funds for childhood stroke. Tommy was well on his way when he was hit by a car and almost died. This accident ended his bicycle trip and was followed by more rehabilitation.Read more...
Speaker March 2 - Catriona Robinson-Nguyen
Catrione, daughter of PP Jamie Robertson and Suong Nguyen is well known to many of our members who have watched her grow up. Her first official connection with Rotary was when our club sponsored her to the National Youth Science Forum around 10 years ago and since then her career in Science has been outstanding and extensive. One area that she is focussing on is Science Communication – helping the general population to understand scientific information necessary for everyday life. The COVID pandemic showed how important this area is in providing accessible information and in helping to counteract pseudo-science. Her communication skills are outstanding and engaging.
