ROTARY PLAY ‘DOUBLE YOUR MONEY’ FOR LEAGUE APPEAL

 

Paignton Rotary Club took a leaf out of TV quizmaster Hughie Green’s book with their own version of the 60’s favourite ‘Double Your Money’

     On Friday the Rotarians promised Torbay Hospital League of Friends £1000 towards their £1.6 million Critical Care Unit Appeal.

     But by the time President Derek Brown came to present the cheque on Monday – it had doubled to a whopping £2,000!

     ‘We raised the money at a crab supper at the Spanish Barn for 200 people’, said Derek yesterday.

     ‘But when we came to do a final count up of raffles, auctions and very generous individual donations, we found we could double the money to £2,000.

     ‘I felt just like Hughie Green!’

     Events chairman John Hopkins said:  ‘We’d even written out the cheque.  But when it came to it, we had to cross out the ‘One’ and put ‘Two’.  I just hope the bank accepts the alterations!’

 

The League’s Lynne Hookings said: ‘Never were so many crabs scoffed in such a good cause.

      ‘A few weeks ago we had a ‘chish and fips’ supper in aid of the appeal, and now we’ve gone a little upmarket.

     ‘So if anyone fancies a charity Caviar Night....let us know!’
