PURPLE 4 POLIO

You must have noticed the thousands of purple crocus coming up in Hotham Park, Rectory Gardens, Longbrook Park, Sea Road and around Middleton pond. Over the last few years these have been planted in support of the international Rotary effort to eradicate polio in our World.

In support of this great effort the 6th form pupils at Felpham Community College once again organised a Purple4Polio tea party

SPORTING DINNER

Back in November we staged the annual Boxing Dinner. This once again was a success and £4500 was raised with 50% being donated to the Bognor Regis Amateur Boxing Club. 

But, with regret we have to announce that this was the last event that we will be organising due to increase costs and falling numbers.

Our thanks go out to all our regular attendees and everyone who has helped us over the past 17 years. Over that period they have helped us raise over £100,000.

LOCAL PIES

We had a great evening recently when Phil Turner of Turner's Pies spoke to the members. Before the talk we all tasted these locally produced pies and then Phil gave us the history of the local Turner family. He brought us right up to the present day showing us pictures of their four shops and kitchens.


 

Phil Turner, seen here on the right, with our President, was obviously delighted when we presented him with a cheque for £370. This is a donation to St Wilfred's Hospice, which is the chosen charity that is being supported by Turners this year.

Our special thanks go to the Bognor Golf Club who joined in the evening by making a donation to the charity. This picture shows Phil with Chelsea, the Golf Club restaurant manager.

RECENT DONATIONS

Our Club has agreed to make donations to five local scouts who are hoping to join over 40,000 other scouts at the World Jamboree in the USA.

A donation is also being made to Bersted green Primary School to support the purchase of a new package of reading books.
