Recognition for years of hard work for the association

A member of Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association (RSDA) received recognition for all that they had done for the association at the Rugby Sports Day for the Disabled earlier this month.

Iris Bingham, who has been with the association since it was first founded over 35 years ago was presented with an Honorary Life Member’s certificate by Rotary District Governor Bryan Carpenter on behalf of RSDA. A senior Rotarian was chosen to present the certificate as the Rotary and Inner Wheel movements are something that Iris hold very dear.

The life membership was awarded for the hard work that Iris has been doing since RSDA was founded and for the kudos that she has brought to the association by being a world crossbow champion for many years.

Iris said that when she was listening to the presentation speech she hadn’t realised that it was for her until she heard the reference to the crossbow championships, which narrowed it down somewhat.

Iris is one of only a handful of people ever to have been granted life membership.
