Lorna Bradley – South Africa
Born in 1940 in South Africa and qualified as a Nursing Sister with post-graduation diploma in Infectious Diseases.
Married with three children and six grandchildren.
My husband joined Rotary in 1982 and I was a Rotary Ann for 10 years. In 1992 he moved to a new Rotary Club and I was Charter President of the new Inner Wheel Club of Waterfront in Cape Town, which has just celebrated 25 years of service.
I am proud to be a member of Inner Wheel and it is an important part of my life. I have particularly enjoyed the friendship and especially contact with members overseas. Have served my Club as President and Secretary several times and ISO for 15 years. Took Office at Club, District and National level to increase knowledge of Inner Wheel. Attending the Inner Wheel Convention in Berlin was a highlight.
South Africa has a large indigent and rural population and my passion has been helping new mothers and babies, supporting Care Centres dealing with adult and child abuse; the elderly and Early Childhood Development.
Inner Wheel is very important for future welfare of the less fortunate. Encouraging children, especially girls, to maximise their education and training.
We need to promote our organisation using media, placing Inner Wheel logos in areas we serve and forming new Clubs in developing areas to grow our influence.
It is an honour to become a Board Director and I would do my best to work as a team member to fulfil any assigned duties.
