A summer party
A summer evening party for Amble and Warkworth Rotary Club, held on Saturday, July 30, raised £900 for local charities.
Hosted by Professor Werner Dobrowsky and Dr Eva Dobrowsky at their historic home in Warkworth, guests were treated to a buffet and drinks, with the Rotary tent saving most from getting too wet during the inevitable summer downpour.
Local businesses generously supported the event, with Credence Brewery in Amble donating a keg of beer, Cabosse in Warkworth some speciality chocolates, and Bertram’s of Warkworth some vouchers. Other prize donations from Inner Wheel members enabled the raffle to raise £297.
Fund-raising committee chairman Derek Conway said: “The event was a great success and everyone enjoyed the evening, but more importantly £900 was raised with no costs at all so every penny can be donated to the local charities supported by the Rotary Club of Amble and Warkworth.
“Werner and Eva Dobrowsky have such an amazing house, it was typically generous of them to make everyone very welcome.
“The Rotary Club team worked hard setting everything up and takes great delight in the support the club is able to provide for local charities.”
