The Rotary Club of Mendip honour local cave rescue divers involved in the Thai Cave Rescue

The Rotary Club of Mendip honoured two of the Cave Rescue Divers from the Cheddar Valley who were involved in the rescue operation to free the boys from the Thailand football team who had become trapped in the Tham Luang Caves. Chris Jewell and Connor Roe were part of the International rescue operation and both were involved within the cave system to bring the boys out. Chris and Connor are members of the British Cave rescue Council. At a special Club meeting the two were presented with the Paul Harris Fellowship Award. It was considered that the two had exemplified the essence of Rotary “Service Above Self”. It is the first time in its 75 year year history that the Club has given this award to Non Rotarians.

During the evening attended by members and guests including Rotarians from the Rotary Club of London and Rotary Club of Rugby an interesting presentation about the rescue operation was given.
