Leicester de Montford’s Shahid Sheikh writes:

“Wherever I may be, I am always flying the flag for Round Table and wearing the badge with pride which if you look closely you will see pinned into my Tie.  Picture 1 was  taken in Jinja where I was amazed to see this sign at a crossing in the middle of the road. Myself and Ash visited this same spot in 2007 and had pictures taken both wearing our RT Polo Shirts.

“Pictures 2 and 3 are just fantastic. I gave the Red Polo Shirt to this chap who looks after a graveyard where my Mother is buried in Jinja in Uganda.

“I gave this shirt back in 2007 when Ash was in Uganda with me. This shirt was given to me by Bod and how great that he still has it. He also had a Blue Polo shirt which we had given to him back in 2007 but I have somehow deleted that picture. Also you can see the same chap in a green Polo shirt which we had for Petes area presidents tour to Prague.

“The other pictures are with the President of Uganda at his State House in Entebbe. This has got to be a scoop to get him to hold the RT mini Poster which I had printed.

“As in some of the pictures which I had sent out last month, you can see me wearing the table badge with some senior African Ministers and Ambassadors and also the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe. So although I may not be present at any meetings in the last month or two, I am still actively promoting Round Table Internationally which fits quite well with my Area role, well I hope it does!”
