The Kenilworth club worked with 124 other clubs across seven countries in order to contribute books to Guatemalan schools.

Phil Highley of Kenilworth Rotary said: “Because much of our work is in the international field, it is often difficult to use it to gain a profile for the club locally, but we felt this achievement was worth shouting about.”

Kenilworth Rotary is now looking forward to getting another campaign underway. Using the worldwide network of Rotary and the Rotary charity grant system, they hope to continue to make similar contributions in the future.
