Rotary International is a global organisation whose members are united in their philosophy of “service above self.” The organisation often works on a local level to raise funds for charity, but arguably Rotary’s most notable aim is the complete eradication of Polio in conjunction with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Stephen’s membership of the Glasgow North and Bishopbriggs chapter has seen him raise over £50,000 in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and a number of other charities.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is one of the largest sources of hospice beds in the UK, behind the NHS. It offers care and support to terminally ill cancer patients and their families. Stephen was instrumental in raising money for their Big Build campaign to build a new hospice in Glasgow, not just in the £80,000 raised with his team mates on charity cycle trips but also by helping out by organising and volunteering for events.
