Talk: Team Rubicon”    

Mark is a member of a team of active retired Army personnel involved in a charity providing service in disaster areas all over the world in helping locals in immediate need, rebuilding and provision of needs such as clean water facilities etc.  Mark is, himself, a specialist in water purification and supply.  Team Rubicon also provides physical help at home and has recently been involved in a project on sheltered accommodation provision in Hampshire.  This sounds a very worthwhile charity who we may be able to use in the future as well as being a fascinating insight to the work being carried out.
