THE outgoing president of Rhyl Rotary Club has chosen a number of charities to donate to.

This is part of Gareth Davies's year at the helm.

Mr Davies said: "As outgoing president, I was able to choose some local charities to donate to.

"One of my charities is Rhyl Citizen Advice and I met with manager Sue Parry to hand over a cheque for £500.

"It was a pleasure to meet Sue, learn more about the services they provide and how they have adapted to continue their service during the Covid-19 pandemic."

Mr Davies, who is also a councillor in Prestatyn, joined the club when he was 24, in 2013.

He became the youngest ever president for the Rhyl club when he was elected last year.

He said at the time: "I joined the club as I was living in Rhyl at the time and wanted to be involved in a local group that actively raises vital funding for local, national, and international causes whilst enjoying fun and fellowship, and Rotary ticks all of these boxes."

Rhyl Rotary Club made history in May after becoming the first club in the district to host a Charter Night via Zoom.
