Three Forts Marathon run

Our Rotary Club helped out at the annual Three Forts Marathon run.


Volunteers David Elliott, David Foulds, Hal Mileham and Chris Williams manned a drinks station at Devil's Dyke

Davids put their backs into it?!

The entertaining Dinner Evening with Guy Butters and Danny Cullip, ex-Albion legends, raised £1,400 for Albion in the Community (AITC). The cheque was presented by Rotarians Ray Eggleton, Peter Reeve and Charles Bedwin to AITC Executive Director Martin Perry at the Elite Performance Centre, Lancing. Also in the picture are Mike Haslam, Mike Denman, Guy Butters, Danny Cullip and Matt Dorn CEO of AITC.

Guy Butters brought along a shirt signed by Brighton's Premiership players which raised £150 for the AITC donation. The Seagulls programme for the Tottenham Hotspurs game in April (BHA 1- 1 Spurs) contained the AITC pages with our photo

 

Guy Butters, Ray Eggleton, Danny Cullip - They were big lads!

CHRISTMAS CAROLS ROUNDS December 2017


Our annual charity collection around the streets of Brighton & Hove in the days before Christmas, with great help from Brighton Scouts (apologies to the faceless young scout in the foto with Father Christmas!), raised a marvellous amount of money, namely £6,000. This will be distributed to local charities during 2018.
Again many thanks to the generous folks of Brighton & Hove

ANOTHER RECORD BREAKING CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

Our annual charity collection around the streets of Brighton & Hove in ten days before Christmas raised an all time record amount of £6,756.95.

This is almost 10% up on the 2015 record breaking amount. The club will be sending £2,500 to the local hospice, The Martletts, and £2,500 to the children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent. The balance will go to other local charities.

Many thanks to all the generous folk of Brighton & Hove.
