CHARITY LUNCH AND AUCTION

2017

On Friday 3rd March 167 people gathered at Hoburne Bashley for New Milton Rotary's Annual Charity Lunch and Auction. Sponsored this year by Dixon Stewart Solicitors, the proceeds are to go to The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy and other local charities.   The Guest Speaker for the occasion was the Rev. Richard Coles.

The Reverend Richard Coles first found fame with Eighties pop band The Communards, whose hit Don’t Leave Me This Way became the biggest-selling single of 1986 and he became the only vicar to have had a number 1 hit . Today he is  the presenter of Radio 4’s morning magazine programme Saturday Live – which attracts two million listeners – and as a regular contributor to Pause for Thought on the Chris Evans Radio 2 show. He also appears on TV in QI, Celebrity Masterchef and Have I Got New for You and he will be co-presenting the BBC1 prime time show The Big Painting Challenge in February. His main job, however, is as vicar of St Mary the Virgin, Finedon, Northamptonshire (he was the inspiration for Tom Hollander’s character in the sitcom Rev).



After an excellent lunch Rotarian John Morgan gave a short Speech on the need for new Members and the success of Business Partners within Rotary.


Jennifer Dixon-Clegg then told us the activities of the Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy and the great work they do.


Then on to Richard Coles our main speaker who gave us a potted  history of his life and the various phases of it which has made him famous. His speech was very well received.


George Kidner was our auctioneer. There were some 12 items for auction. Diverse as Golf for 4 to a Bottle of Champagne signed by the Prime Minster! The total Auction raised £ 1900.  Rotarian Mary Pye organised the Raffle for which there were 39 prizes and which raised a further £ 1250.  Total profit for the Event was in the region of

£ 5000.   A brilliant effort.

PRESS RELEASE

New Milton’s Rotary Club

celebrates their 10th annual fashion show


Nearly £2,000 was raised by New Milton’s Rotary Club at their 10th annual fashion show, which this year was held at the Memorial Centre.

In addition to fashion favourites, Smith Bradbeers of New Milton, the show also saw newcomers ‘Lifestyle Concept’ displaying their delightful spring/summer collection on the catwalk.

Mary Pye, President Elect of New Milton Rotary Club enthuses “I couldn’t be more delighted with the successful outcome of our 10th fashion show.  Fundraising currently stands at a wonderful £1,850 which I know will benefit one of our supported charities, the Fortune Centre for Riding Therapy based locally here in the New Forest”.

Local MP, Sir Desmond Swayne attended this prestigious event, which added support and prestige to this popular show.   Over 50 models exhibited day and evening wear and there was a wealth of stalls and retail outlets who also took part.

Over the past 10 years, nearly £20,000 has been raised from the fashion shows and The Rotary Club are delighted that this still plays a key role in their events diary.  They fully intend to continue to embody the vision of cutting edge fashion, breaking trends set by London, Paris and even New York.  For more information about the trust, please go to www.newmiltonrotary.org
