Rotarians give up plush lunch to raise money for charity
GENEROUS Rotarians exchanged a plush lunch for frugal fare to raise money for needy children.
The Rotary Club of Colchester Forum had their frugal lunch at the Rose and Crown in East Street, Colchester.
The award-winning hotel provided a lunch of soup and rolls for free and the Rotary members paid the price for a full meal raising a total of £1,000.
The sum was boosted by an anonymous donation of £500.
The money is being donated to Mary’s Meals, a global movement which sets up school feeding projects in some of the world’s poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from receiving an education.
