Garden party in the rain raises £2,800 for Kinver Rotary Clubs International Charities

Good Company
Summer in Kinver

 

Torrential rain failed to put a damper on one of Kinver Rotary Club’s most successful charity events for some considerable time – a party in the magnificent gardens of friends of the club who live just outside the village.

More than 200 Rotarians, their wives and guests, together with guests of the host and hostess, attended the garden party to enjoy splendid food, fine wines and entertainment by a trio of first class musicians.  The sale of tickets plus a raffle and donations raised £2800, a sum described by Rtn. Graham Smith, one of the organising committee as “absolutely magnificent.”

The proceeds will be split between its two of the club’s international charities: Classrooms in the Clouds, a charity project to help schoolchildren in Nepal; and the Bore Project  for Planting for Hope Uganda

Mr Smith added that far from putting anyone off, the rain brought people closer to together and joviality prevailed in the face of extremely adverse weather conditions.
