The National Campaign for Courtesy’s 2013 annual general meeting on Saturday 1 June lived up to the success of previous years’ events with a number of inspiring talks.
Although some officers and members were unable to travel to London and were sorely missed, those attending participated fully in the business part of the meeting before enjoying an inspiring talk from Paul Smith on Football’s Top 10 Sportsmanship Moments 2012/13. While football does not always portray itself as a sport where ‘fairness’ is practised, Paul chose some truly inspiring moments to share with everyone.
Following this, Dorothy Mdoe and Ann Skidmore, two London Olympic Ambassadors who took up the option of National Campaign for Courtesy membership, recounted their experiences of welcoming thousands of visitors to London for the 2012 Games.
The meeting closed to rapturous applause from all attending, who emerged on to the London streets realising the power of sport, volunteering and courtesy to improve our daily lives.
• Many thanks to ‘number one showbusiness photographer’ Doug McKenzie for capturing the event with his camera.
The National Campaign for Courtesy Annual General Meeting will take place at 12 midday for 12.30pm on Saturday 1 June at the Club for Acts and Actors, 20 Bedford Street, London, WC2E 9HP (see map and travel details below).
The meeting will cover the campaign’s activities over the past year and discuss future activities.
Tea/coffee and a buffet will be served at 1.30pm – the cost is £10 per person (payable to the Treasurer on the day).
Following this, guest speaker PR Smith, author of Great Moments of Sportsmanship and Extraordinary Sports People, will be presenting his London 2012 slideshow with reference to the magnificent support given by the London Team of Volunteers to whom the National Campaign for Courtesy provided guidance regarding the courtesy and respect to be extended to all visitors to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Patron and ‘number one showbusiness photographer’ Doug McKenzie will also be capturing the highlights of the event on his camera.
