Guildford dentist, Mrs Anh Tran, and her family recently laid on a special Vietnamese
evening for the club. The delicious Asian food cooked by the family was complemented
by a talk by husband Tri and younger son Dan, pictured right.
The family have been supporting a school in Vietnam for several years, helping to
raise funds and supply some school essentials such as pens and pencils and a properly
equipped playground. Their work with the school came to the attention of the Government
and this resulted in Government funds being made available to construct a new school.
Dan explained how he had visited the school to teach basic English to the children
during his own school holidays.
The 40 Rotarians and guests attending the dinner were delighted and the evening raised
£700 for club funds. We are most grateful to the Tran family for their generosity.
