How We Raise Our Funds
Having Fun and Fellowship whilst at the same time Raising a Bit of Cash
The Rotary Club of Bewdley has traditionally operated a Fund Raising Committee (FRC) to support the work of other formal Committees, notably those of Community Service, International Service and Foundation.
Quiz Nights are held regularly at Heightington Village Hall and at Chaddesley Corbett Village Hall and raise in the region of £1000 each time.
Our pig roast at Bewdley Christmas Market along with the associated mulled wine sales can be relied upon to raise another £1000.
A comedy and laughter night is organised each year, normally in March, and is now held in the refurbished St George's Hall in Bewdley and raises in excess of £1000.
We have a presence selling chocolate covered marshmallows at the Bewdley St George's Day Market and organise pig roasts for other events and organisation in the Bewdley area. We have even done a pig roast at a wedding.
In 2015 we took over the organisation of the Button Oak Fete and in this we may well have found our major fund raising event with over £4000 distributed to local good causes and charities. The Fete this year will take place on Saturday August 13th.
