We are finalsing our plans for our Healthy Body, Healthy Mind event on 4th July at Bristol's Watershed with Dr Judy Howarth, Dementia Research Specialist and Ben Smith, 401 Challenge Inspirational Marathon Runner.
On 27th February we welcomed our founder members to our base in Bristol to find out more on how we can work together, and what they wanted from The Royall Wealth Club. The feedback received was very positive and will help us grow the club with purpose for the future, as well as helping to shape our quarterly events.
Following the meeting, members attended an exclusive pre-screening of the film – Viceroy’s House – starring Gillian Anderson & Hugh Bonneville, at the Watershed in Bristol. At The Royall Wealth Club, we believe that it is not all about money but enjoying life too. Therefore we see that it is important for our members to socialise with fun opportunities such as this.
Over 70 people listened to expert speakers on the subject of Community Investing.
Derrick Royall outlined the structure of The Royall Wealth Club with inspirational quarterly events, unique investment opportunities and member discounts with international as well as local businesses.
This was followed by an inspirational interview with John Pontin sharing his background and experiences in redeveloping Bristol’s harbour side over the past 40 years.
John shared his passion for sustainability with George McGavin, (zoologist and BBC Presenter) who previewed The Converging World’s new video showing how you can combine renewable energy with reforestation in India to offset your carbon footprint.
This was all complimented by entertainment from up and coming folk artist, Fraser Anderson, who added an additional dimension to the evening.
We will be following up on this event with video interviews with the speakers from the evening in the near future.
Feedback has been very positive such as Steve Livings, President of Bristol Breakfast Rotary Club,
“Many thanks for a really interesting evening. I found all the speakers thought provoking; I was truly inspired by John Pontin’s story, a real ‘rags to riches’ tale and someone who obviously has his fellow beings at heart.
I believe the film and story about The Converging World would really appeal to all people with a social conscience. Derrick, your presentation was highly polished and I wish you every success. Once again, many thanks for an inspirational evening.”
