Randolph Fun Day August 2013

The people of Reydon and further afield came out to enjoy the sun and jazz music at the annual Randolph Hotel fun day. The event took place, as usual, on August Bank Holiday Monday. Guests enjoyed the sounds of Rhythm ‘n’ Reeds Jazz, stationary engines, mini display from the Lowestoft Mini Club, Bouncy Castle, BBQ, lots of stalls and the GRAND RAFFLE, with almost £1,000 worth of prizes. Proceeds from the day will go to the East Coast Hospice

We supported the event with our soft toy stall and raised £175 in 4 hours. A big thank you to everyone who helped. To view photos from the day click here or to see a short video of the day click here.

Micro-Financing

Like many other clubs the Rotary Club of Southwold and District has decided to support the Lend With Care initiative. This involves helping entrepreneurs in the developing world to support themselves by providing micro-loans for their businesses. The club has initially helped three entrepreneurs:
