The St Leonards Rotary Club is committed to raising £3, 500 to provide solar panels for the Medical Centre in Hastings, Sierra Leone.
The first fundraising event took place on Wednesday, February 25 at the Elphinstone Sports and Social Club. More than 20 teams entered for the quiz, each team consisting of six members. The question master was Rotarian Michael Foster, who made his way successfully through 10 rounds of questions. The winners at Table No7, were The Searchers, who won 6 bottles of wine donated by Carlsberg.
The evening raised £1,100 towards the target, and president George Mighall thanked everyone involved in the event especially those teams who took part.
The next fundraiser will be on Friday, May 29 at the same venue and will be an “African Evening” when there will be an exhibition of African Dancing and a meal of African food. For more information regarding the Rotary Club, go to www.stleonardsrotary.org.
