Lynn Priory Rotary Club (UK) will host their tenth annual black tie dinner and auction gala on Friday, March 26 to benefit the diabetes team at Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, who need help in getting essential equipment for those with consistent control problems on insulin therapy.
Club spokesman Tony Williams said: “Having raised more than £98,000 in the last nine years, we are confident of breaking the £100,000 barrier this year!”
Williams’ confidence is well founded, as the wide variety of items and opportunities up for auction are amazing.
Items include: A signed cap by current F1 world motor racing champion Jenson Button, A British Lions Tour of South Africa 2009 rugby shirt signed by Gareth Edwards, two tickets for an Arsenal match at the Emirates Stadium next season, Holiday accommodations in South Africa, Portugal and France, A photograph of a gold medal-winning rowing team signed by Olympic hero Sir Steve Redgrave, and there will also be a chance to bid for two highly-prized tickets to a stand at the Lord Mayor of London’s show.
Tickets for the dinner and auction cost £35 each, available from John Reed (01553 630643), Bob Angell (01553 631696 – evenings only) or through any Priory Rotary Club member. Individual parties, from six to 20, can have their own table.
