One piece of good news relates to the Epiphany Trust, a charity presently sinking wells in Bangladesh to providing clean drinking water, with obvious health benefits, for people in remote areas of that country.
Our Club is supporting this cause and has just received a Rotary Foundation grant of £1000.00 towards this work. PUBLIC DONATIONS initially made this possible. We thank our public sincerely for that help and are sure you will agree that helping others, in this important way, is a good use of those funds. This grant also increases the amount of money available for local charities.

BEER FESTIVAL SPONSORS
Our annual Culcheth Beer Festiva (see attached photograph) takes place at The Culcheth Sports Club (Daten) on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th September. Featuring 40 different CASK ALES, various CIDERS and a PROSECCO BAR plus free SOFT DRINKS for designated drivers, this is now an established annual event in the Culcheth calendar.
Numerous sponsorship opportunities exist for businesses and charitable individuals. Sponsors whilst contributing to Rotary charities and gaining valuable publicity, also feature on our Festival website, have their name displayed on a Cask of Beer and their details recorded in the Festival Programme. They also receive 2 or 4 free entry tickets, dependent upon the extent of sponsorship. Major sponsorship opportunities are available for the Programme printing, half or full page advertising therein. £500.00 of Sponsorship will pay for 500 commemorative pint glasses bearing your Business Name. Otherwise, you might like to Sponsor a Music Session at the Festival itself, or the Festival advertising banners. All Sponsors can display their trade literature on stands or on the tables during “opening hours”. Interested parties are requested to check our Festival website – www.culchethbeerfestival.org or make contact via the phone number below.
Joining Rotary can be a life changing experience. New members whatever their age are very welcome as are “Friends of Rotary” who assist as and when they can. With 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide in 34,000 Clubs, we are a force for good in this troubled world.
Why not join us in either capacity and help make a difference where it matters most. You will make new friends and enjoy an active social life. Call Bernard Groom on 01925 733893 or visit the Rotary District 1285 website. We are also on Facebook and Twitter.
