Redbridge Rotarian gearing up for role in Paralympic Closing Ceremony after just one rehearsal

A volunteer who has had only one rehearsal before taking part in tonight’s Paralympic Closing Ceremony is sure it will be an “inspirational” show.

First female district governor of Rotary, Eve Conway-Ghazi, took part in last week’s Paralympic Closing Ceremony, encouraging people in the crowd to take part in the show in a variety of ways.

Speaking earlier this week she said: “I am sure the ceremony will be inspirational and will live up to the Opening Ceremony.

“Everyone has been keeping the details secret and I know very little about what I will doing on the night.

“The audience made my job very easy at the opening as everyone was so enthusiastic and one woman even told me it was the best birthday she had ever had.
