Rise Against Hunger

Grange-over-Sands organised a Meal Pack Event at Cartmel Priory School on Saturday 13th April 2019 to provide 60,000 meals for children facing hunger.   The event was organised on behalf of Rise Against Hunger which is an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable with the goal of ending hunger by 2030.

Update - The Rise Against Hunger meals have been delivered

Dear Mike and Linda Butterworth,

On behalf of Rise Against Hunger Italia, I wish to inform you of the successful arrival in Zimbabwe of the meals packed together on 13th of April 2019. Upon delivery, the meals have been joyfully received by the schools associated to The Joseph Foundation supervised by our partner Feed The Hungry UK. We want to thank you again for your support in the fight against hunger and hope to be able to count on your continued support & partnership in the future.

Best regards - Veronica Bacci Bonivento

Golden opportunity to win a European break

Where in the world can you find Passionately Purple Gin?

Rotary Lytham, in conjunction with Riviera Travel, is offering a golden opportunity for you to win a fantastic break in either Paris or Bruges, simply by taking a picture of a bottle of Passionately Purple Gin in either a holiday or unusual setting and posting it on Twitter and Facebook. You don’t have to travel to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, as one of our purchasers did - it can be anywhere in the UK, Europe or the rest of the world. The most imaginative photograph will be selected by RotaryGBI’s Rotary magazine Editor Dave King, to win a fabulous four day/three night break in one of two romantic European cities.

The prize is the winner's choice from two of Riviera Travel's escorted short break tours for two people – Paris or Bruges. The prize includes return travel by Eurostar from St Pancras International Station to hotel, transfers, accommodation with breakfast and a range of excursions.

The full tour details can be found at :

The holiday can be taken, subject to availability, at any time to the end of 2020.

We told you Passionately Purple Gin had magical qualities — now it can transport you to Europe where you can top up your taste buds even further.  If you have already drunk your gin or still haven’t tried it now is the time to order

One bottle of the special craft gin can still be purchased for £35 and can be delivered direct to your home for only £5.50 extra. Larger orders ie two to six can be delivered direct to a mainland UK address for £9.95 or sent to Alcester for collection by your DG or a member of your District team who visits Alcester. Please ask for details.

Orders can be placed by downloading and completing the order form and pay by BACS or cheque. Further details on the form which should be sent to Rotary Lytham, preferably by email - address and payment details as printed on the form. If you are unable to email the form please email your name, address, club and district, phone number and your payment confirmation details and the number of bottles you require.

Terms and conditions

Closing date is 30th October 2019; the Editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. All photographs should be original and unedited and must be posted on your personal and/or Club’s Twitter/Facebook pages with the following handles/hashtags @LythamRotary #PassionatelyPurpleGin #Rotary #EndPolio #RivieraTravelUK.

If posting on Facebook please take a screenshot and send to lythamrotary@englandmail.com Selected photos may be published on RotaryGBI Social Media platforms, in the Rotary Magazine and on Rotary Lytham Facebook page.
