The committeee provides the club with funds to carry out its Program for the year.
Fran Perrin chairs our Fundraising Committee for 2016/17 and has an ambitious programme of events to raise the money we need in order to provide our various services.
Key dates include 14.10.16 Quiz Evening; 25.11.16 Fashion Show; a Rotary Talent Show in February and a Summer Family Day in May.
Social events include arranging speakers at breakfast, theatre or pantomime visit and a London visit.
Fran hopes that the plans will help to raise £15,000 over the year with £10,000 from the fashion show, £2,000 from each of the summer family day and the quiz, being the key contributing events.
The Fashion Show in NOvember 2016 was a brilliant success and we made nearer £20k. We had a guest appearance on our catwalk by Denise Lewis and we gave Paul Harris Awards (signifiant Rotary Award) to local people who have contributed greatly to our community.
