Rotary Club of St Ives and Their Type 1 Diabetes Project
Type One diabetes is a form of diabetes in which very little or no insulin is produced by the pancreas. The cause is unknown but is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. However, insulin therapy delivered through an insulin pump attached to the body, can radically improve the lives of people with Type One diabetes. But these pumps are relatively expensive, so it is heartening to hear from John Waterhouse of St Ives Rotary Club about the successful campaign he has led to raise the funds to procure and distribute insulin pumps to those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Cross Egypt Challenge - Part 1
We travel to the Rotary Club of Alexandria Cosmopolitan to meet Ahmad Elzoghby, the chief organiser for the annual Cross Egypt Challenge. In this ten day event, motorcyclists and scooter riders are taken on an unforgettable journey taking in the main sights, monuments and attractions of Egypt. Along the way the riders attend Rotary meetings in the Egyptian desert, they stay at 4-5 star hotels plus one night luxury camping. Riders come from around the world with a strong contingent from Australia. While the 2020 event has been cancelled due to Covid, it is hoped that the 2021 edition can proceed.
