An inaugural “Dine Around” (aka Safari Supper) was recently organised by some Ribblesdale Rotarians to raise funds for Crossroads Care Ribble Valley.
This event involved no washing up by hosts in their own homes, however, because six local hostelries added value to the fun by providing starters, main courses and puddings for more than 130 people.
The Dine Around began with a glass of something convivial at St Michael and St John’s social centre, where groups of Rotarians and friends picked up a slip of paper giving their venues for the evening.
Ribblesdale Rotary Club is indebted to the following establishments for entering in to the spirit of the evening and providing gastronomic delights for them all. They are the Spread Eagle, Swan with Two Necks, Calves Head, Red Pump, Waddington Arms and the Emporium. The event was hailed a success by all who attended with the request that the same committee organise an identical event next year.
Some members of the organising committee are pictured with two Carer Support Workers receiving a cheque for £1,000 representing the proceeds from the evening topped up by the sale of some lambs which Rotarians own and Richard Schofield manages.
