January 2017 - Peter Kysel, our Treasurer, joined members, visitors and friends of the Rotary Club Prague International in the city. Peter is an experienced Investment Banker and Consultant and has been actively involved in the voluntary sector since 1986.
Christian Noll wrote about the event on the Rotary Club's website: 'Peter explained that his organisation uses their funds as seed corn to leverage further fund and to set projects off on a path to completion. "Very often a relatively small sum will will demonstrate to others that the project has backing and other grant money will begin to flow," said Peter. The organisation also helps in very practical ways by organising volunteers where willing and able individuals spend time physically working on a project. "No experience necessary," explained Peter, "we provide all the know how - you just have to be willing and have a pair of gloves and boots". ...help owners of historic buildings to consider how to preserve the building whilst always bearing in mind that an ultimate purpose and use is really important. "We restore and preserve so that the building has a use. Without this it would fall into disrepair again in 5 years," said Peter. The club thanked Peter for a very interesting and enlightening talk.'
