Wetherby success at District – Brian Driscoll Trophy and Evaluation Contest

At the Eastern District AGM on Sunday 9th March at The Bridge Inn, Walshford,  Wetherby Speakers Club was awarded the Brian Driscoll Trophy jointly with Wharfedale Speakers Club for helping young people develop public speaking skills. You can read about our work with Wetherby High School here.

Chris Clissitt won the Evaluation Contest and will compete at the National Evaluation Contest in Glasgow on 27th April. This will be Chris’s 6th national final appearance – still trailing Lindsay Dutch, our “local” National President, who has 7 final appearances to his name.

This completed a clean sweep for Vale of York Area. Congratulations to Ramana Sundara and Clive Dawson, both of York RI Speakers Club, who won the speech and topics contests respectively. Ramana’s speech was entitled “The Icon” and Clive’s topic was “Climbing Mountains.” 

We wish Ramana, Clive and Chris the best of luck in Glasgow in April.
