ROTARIAN June Snowden was welcomed into the Paul Harris Fellowship this week, the highest honour that can be bestowed within the organisation.
June, a member of Ely Hereward Rotary Club, received her award from mayor of Ely Will Burton on Friday at the City of Ely Golf Club, with dozens of Rotarians from clubs around the district turning out to support her.
She said: “I’m not normally speechless but I’m very honoured to have received this award. I love Ely, I’m so pleased I moved here, it was the best decision I could have made and I have made some fantastic friends through Rotary.
“I very much enjoy the work I do because, for me, community and family is not just here at home, it is around the world.”
June, who lives in Ely, is president of the Hospital Broadcasting Association, which manages hospital radio stations across the country, and has raised hundreds of pounds for charities in the Caribbean and India.
President of Ely Hereward Rotary Club Gary Gardner said: “June has worked tirelessly for the club as well as for charities overseas and at home. It is a privilege to give her this award in recognition of her outstanding service.”
