We put the FUN into Fundraising!
Every year we raise £000’s for our local community
and international causes and also for other Rotary Charities.
Our fundraising team organise many events
during the year which appeal to all ages and tastes. Our sole aim is to have
fun and raise money for charity.
Why not come and join in our many events
either as a Rotarian, a helper or as a supporter and enjoy yourself.
Our events are varied and include:
* Every September we hold our
charity golf day at Lingfield Park Golf Club and we are now into our 18th
year. It is a great for golfers of all standards.
· Who Done It? – at a murder
· A Sunday lunchtime paella meal
followed by listening to the experiences of Fergus Anckom during his captivity
in Singapore during the Second World War.
· We have organised concerts held
at the Meridian Hall and The Chequer Mead Arts Centre.
· We also give our time to
collect on behalf of other charities such as Marie Curie and in the last 3
years we have collected over £2,000 which have provided over 100 hours of
nursing care for the terminally ill in our local community.
· Video race Nights with a meal
where you and friends can experience all the fun of a night at the races and
even have a small flutter!
· At Christmas we organise the
East Grinstead Town Christmas Tree and Lights appeal as well as the annual
street collections with Father Christmas and his sleigh. In association with
the other local Rotary Club we also deliver a Christmas gifts to the lonely and
needy of our town.
