A SELL-OUT 120 people attended this year’s Rotary Club of Lyme Regis soup and ploughman’s lunch at the Alexandra Hotel.
The expected profit, including proceeds from a large raffle, will be in excess of £1,500 which will be donated to the Rotary charity Water Survival Box.
Water Survival Box is the initiative of the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge, based in Somerset, set up in 2004 to help the victims of the tsunami in the Indian Ocean. A total of 3,200 water aid boxes were packed with items donated by members of the public.
Since then thousands of water aid boxes, containing essential items including a pump that purifies water, have been sent to disasters all over the globe.
The “magic” pump contained in the box, along with a quantity of tools and useful equipment, will supply clean virus-free water to a family of four for up to five years when suitably cleaned each night.
The Rotary Club of Lyme Regis would like to place on record their thanks to the Alexandra Hotel who once again donated the total cost of the soup and the ploughman’s lunch so enabling them to generate such a sizeable profit.
