AFTER overseeing fundraising of more than £40,000 over the last 12 months, a Marlow Rotarian handed over the baton last week for a new president to serve in his place.

Outgoing Marlow Thames Rotary president David Duxbury thanked his fellow philanthropists for a successful year before handing the presidency to Brian Jonson at the club’s annual ‘Handover Lunch’.

Formed 60 years ago, the club continues to raise cash for local, national and international causes.

Mr Duxbury’s tenure has included a £6000 Rotary street collection for the Philippines disaster, and completion of a £ 25,000 schools building scheme near Nairobi.

Chris Kelsey has taken up the post of Vice President.
