41 Club National and International Newsletters September 2021

You’re waiting ages for 41 Club newsletters, and two come at once. They’re mostly about the great idea of YAP Day.

Young Ambassadors Program [“YAP”] Day, this Saturday morning, 11th September, from 9am until 12-noon 41

Club YAP Co-ordinator Bruce Bennett writes:-

Hello Everyone As the world starts to awake from its enforced slumber and the probability of world travel becomes a possibility again (albeit a little way off yet) thoughts have turned to the prospect of the resumption of the Young Ambassadors Program (YAP). For those of you who have never heard of such a Program or a little unsure of what it’s all about, it is in essence:  “The promotion of exchange visits between the children (Young Adults between the ages of 18-25) of parents who are members of 41 Clubs” throughout the world. Such a short, although precise, description does not do any justice to the outstanding opportunities available to potential Young Ambassadors. The chance to travel and have the opportunity to meet other 41 Club members and their families – see how they live their lives and learn about the host’s customs and culture. If you think you know someone in your family that would love to do this and would like more information, then the following is for you.  The YAP Convenors from the Member Associations throughout the World are hosting A YAP DAY. THIS WILL BE ONLINE ON THE 11th of SEPTEMBER 2021 between 9am & 12-noon (British Summer Time). Everything you need to know including – 

  • The idea behind YAP.
  • How does the YAP concept work?
  • What do I have to do to apply?
  • What does the itinerary of an event look like?
  • Where do the tours go to?

 After a presentation of the most recent tours there will be live reports from the participants of previous groups with the opportunity to speak to them directly with any questions you may have. To register for the YAP-DAY simply go to: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcsf-urqz4qGdfBm_g5kfTrUOEMC06ZIwLJ We expect a large demand for places at the meeting, so I recommend you register as soon as possible. If you have any problems registering or questions my email is yap@41club.org YiCF

41 Club National Newsletter July 2021

Dear Member, I am sending the attached July Newsletter direct to everyone.

Firstly an apology that it’s late this month – the perils of work intruded.

It’s a full newsletter loaded with details of spectacular feats of fund raising (take a bow Kilsh and Steve Lord but they are no means alone). To everyone who has done spectacular feats to raise money for the National President’s Charity, Dementia UK, well done. It’s also full of details of the various weekend breaks on offer – including The 41 Club Big Weekend in October. And a first report on the 41 Club National Car Rally in Kent at the beginning of the month.  But that’s not all – there’s a feature on Welfare, and reports from various clubs, and and and – did I mention the Whisky, or the Beer, or the Wine Tasting? Is it any wonder that it’s late this month with so much in it?

Don’t forget to join me on Zoom this Saturday for the latest 41 Club Wine Club Wine Tasting – expertly paired with cheeses by Roger Hanley.

Read the Newsletter – enjoy it – and remember 41 Club is about #ContinuingToDoMore

Message from the Chairman

Chairman Dave has asked me to inform members that, due to changing circumstances, the planned August Nag’s Head BBQ and Treasure Hunt has had to be postponed.

It is hoped to hold the event at our normal date for the first meeting of the new year: the third Thursday in September.

More details to come as soon as possible.

Message from the National President: Vaccination Volunteers

Dear  Member,

Chris Allen, the Secretary of North Walsham & District, in Region 17 (Norfolk) has written to me as follows:

“I am a steward volunteer for the vaccination centres, locally and I suspect several 41 members across the UK are doing the same.

The purpose of this email is to request National 41 put out an appeal to all clubs and members to consider, for members to consider registering to become a Steward Volunteer, using this link:
https://nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk/i-want-to-volunteer/volunteer-roles/steward-volunteer 

They are ‘desperate’ for volunteers, every day there are dozens and dozens of requests in my area and across the country which remain unfilled and then have to be carried out by trained medical staff, losing them from where they are needed most. The task is not onerous, usually around a 4 to 6 hour shift, a volunteer could greet those coming for a vaccination or show them where to go, wait etc, with some sanitising required, masks and disposable gloves are provided together with a volunteer tabard. This really is vital work, so I do hope our national organization will consider this and send an appeal to all clubs.” 

Well, I agree with Chris – three members of my own Club have been volunteering; as well as many more members (and their partners) in Clubs throughout Great Britain and Ireland, including members of the National Board and National Council. The need for volunteers is increasing rather than diminishing so now is indeed a great time to point out to all our members how they can volunteer; hence this email to each of our members.

Chairman’s Chosen Charity for 2021-22

Our Chairman has chosen The Rainbow Centre as his selected charity for the Club’s support during 2021-22.

The Rainbow Centre was established in 1997 to offer practical support to vulnerable people in the local community. Since then, they have grown and offer an open door to anyone in need of help with any issues they are facing, offering compassion, support and hope.

Each year they make around 12,500 critical interventions, offering assistance to vulnerable people during their difficult circumstances and beyond.

They are a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers who believe in fairness and equality and they are very grateful for the support of the community in helping them to continue to provide their many services and facilities.

This support can provide assistance such as an emergency food parcel, a hot meal in their community cafe, access to shower and laundry facilities, clean clothing, bedding and other household essentials. They believe people should have access to the most basics of needs.

Dave writes:

My chosen charity for my year in office is The Rainbow Centre, Scarborough. The Charity offers assistance and guidance to all types of vulnerable people, including the homeless, and debt advice. I feel this type of charity will benefit from the level of donations we are able to commit to, having a greater impact than to much to larger charities.
