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 mystery evening.

·       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.
