Here’s a connection between the Blantyre Round Table and the Blantyre Round Table in Malawi. In 1985 Sandy Wilkie, George Fulston, Billy Holdsworth, Ian Prowdfoot, Ronnie McIntosh and Kenny Jack flew out to Malawi as guests of the local Blantyre Round Table. They identified the need for an ambulance and various medical supplies.
A Ford Transit was donated to the Round Table and was refurbished to meet the needs of an ambulance. On 7 December 1988 it was ready to sail out from Felixstowe to Malawi filled with various medical products and items, which would have made a massive difference to the people there.
In 1991 further items were dispatched to Malawi. Blantyre Round Table is fondly remembered for all their charitable work and putting Blantyre on the map!
In the attached photo are Sandy Wilkie, Alex McPherson, Kenny Jack, Ian Proudfoot and Ronnie McIntosh sorting through glasses to be sent out. Sadly, Alex, Kenny and Ronnie are no longer with us. With thanks to Sandy Wilkie for sharing this interesting information.
