Lauren Jones

It is always nice to hear from friends and keep in touch.

So, as a club, we were very pleased to hear about Lauren Jones, one of our Rotary Friends.

Many will know about Lauren, a Worthing resident who in 2009 was paralysed and left in a wheelchair at the age of 14.

Lauren reached number one in the world for juniors in wheelchair tennis and held the title of World Junior Champion in 2013.

She is now playing as a senior and was the women’s singles champion at this year’s Holland Open.

Well done Lauren.

If you would like to be a Rotary Friend and know more about our club, come along to meet us on a Monday evening at the Ardington Hotel or please call 07788 638757 for more information.

Lauren is associated with Dog’s Trust in Shoreham, another organisation Rotary Club of Worthing Steyne has good links to.

So much so that Dog’s Trust will be joining us on August bank holiday Monday this year for our carnival weekend to run a dog show at Worthing Steyne.

It promises to be a great weekend with the car show on Sunday, procession on Monday, entertainment stage, stalls, strong man and funfair.

There is much to see and do, so we hope to see you there.

Watch out for more news over the next few weeks.

Visit or pick up a leaflet at shops and cafes around the town.
