Colwall Rotary Club

Word is spreading about Malvern Events' exceptional, versatile facilities which are perfect for conferences, seminars, wedding receptions and many other types of function.

One local group that's already booked to hold an important event in their calendar is the Rotary Club of Colwall. It is hoped that this will be the first of many events the Rotarians will hold at our uniquely beautiful venue.

David Watson, the Rotary Club of Colwall's Senior Vice President has been planning the function with Adela Straughan, Events Co-ordinator, who asked him a few questions on a recent visit to Malvern College.

Q: What is your role at the Rotary Club?

A:  As Senior Vice President I am involved in the day-to-day programme and smooth-running of the organisation. I have been a member for approximately six years. We meet each week and our main aim is 'fellowship and fundraising.'

Q. Tell us about the first event you are holding here at Malvern Central.

A. It's our gold-themed Annual Rotary Club Christmas Dinner on Saturday, 17th December. We are expecting in the region of 100 guests who will be entertained by the talented pianist Levi Moscivici throughout the reception and then by the Colwall Players theatre group during dinner. I'm sure that the evening will be a great night amongst friends.

Q. You must have investigated many venues on behalf of the Rotary Club of Colwall; what makes Malvern College so special?

A.  Above all, we are looking for a local venue with a high standard of cuisine, served in beautiful surroundings and hopefully, somewhere that we can come back to year after year.

Q. What are your other significant fundraising occasions?

A. Although one of my main tasks is to organise the Christmas party, we hold many fundraisers throughout the year, ranging from a Blue Ball in summer to Young Chef events.

Over 470 people attended our summer fundraiser when we raised over £18,500 which is being distributed between The Emily Jordan Foundation, Robocap (a charity raising money for new treatment methods for prostate cancer) and Water Survival Boxes (a charity founded by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge).
