First Lady President of Rotary

Elaine Vandelli has plenty of strings to her bow. As well as being the Founder of the biggest business Expo in Leicestershire for the last ten years; she is also a tireless champion of her local community and helps to support many local and national charities.
In just five years, her membership of the Kibworth and Fleckney Rotary Club has been transformational to the organisation. From joining up in 2011 as the first ever lady member, she has now been voted in as their new President.
This is a massive achievement for any woman, so we interviewed Elaine about it, to find out how she has changed their views in five years, and the incredible amount of behind the scenes work that she does in the community. Elaine told us:

“I always wanted to do something for the local community and that why I joined the Kibworth and Fleckney club. Market Harborough Rotary Club currently has around a third of its members’ ladies, but there is still a wide perception that Rotary is just for older business men.”

“I would love to change that perception.”

The club does a lot of work for the local community as well as for the main charities like Loros, Rainbows, Air Ambulance and others, and they always support the local Scouts groups, Brownies and Guides.

The Kibworth group have also sent a few young people on Youth Exchange visits for up to 6 weeks at a time to places like Brazil, America and China.
We asked Elaine for her top tip about Rotary Clubs, and she told us:

“One great thing about Rotary is that as a member you can go to any club in the world and be made to feel really welcome.”

Nominated Charities for the Year

Elaine has already chosen her nominated charities for the year which are: Children’s Air Ambulance, and TwentyTwenty a charity working with kids who have been thrown out of either or both, home and school. They offer them an education and help them to make positive life choices going forward.   We will of course still be supporting the local community as well.

Interested in finding out more about Rotary?

They meet on a weekly basis but Elaine is currently setting up a Satellite group which will meet once a month and/or online, because some business people are too busy to commit to a weekly meeting, and this will be a good way to gain new members and boost the visibility of what the Rotary Club organisation is all about.

Contact Elaine right here if you would like to know about a Rotary Club group in your area, or visiting the Kibworth and Fleckney group as a guest.
