MEMBERS of the Formby Squirrels Rotary Club raised almost £600 for charity during two recent charity evenings.

Helen Blackwell, secretary of the club, revealed that they held a Bacon Butty event at Holy Trinity Formby, on Rosemary Lane, which raised £180, followed by a Quiz and Pizza Evening, which raised £400.

She said: “It has been a busy month for the Rotary Club of Formby Squirrels with two fund raising events. The first was one of our Bacon Butty Events at Holy Trinity Formby which we do six times a year.

“District Governor Bob Maskell of Rotary District 1180 joined us along with his wife and it was not long before he was roped in by President Angela Bramhall to do some of the washing up! With a cake and Bric a Brac stall as well, we raised £180. The club will be hosting the Butty Bar again from 9am-noon on November 9, which is open to all.

“Our second event was a Quiz and Pizza evening, when 50 guests enjoyed a quiz presented by fellow Rotarian Peter Connor with pizza supplied by Dominos Formby. We raised £400 all which goes to local charities.

“Our next event is a wine tasting at 7pm on November 23 at Formby Luncheon Club on Rosemary Lane, supported by Majestic Wines Birkdale. If you would like any further information or to buy tickets, which cost £15, email rotaryformbysquirrels@gmail.com or squirrelbramhall@gmail.com
