Banstead Rotary Unforgettable Evening of Mystery and Fun

On Tuesday night, members of the Banstead Rotary Club made their way to the Club's Murder Mystery Dinner: A Bad Vintage, and what a night it turned out to be! With over 50 friends and neighbours as participants, it was an event that not only raised funds for a great cause but also created unforgettable memories.The turnout was nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the sense of community and camaraderie that exists in Banstead. While the weather may have been haphazard recently , the warmth and excitement inside the venue were palpable. The event was a true testament to the power of collaboration and the dedication of Rotary members to make a positive impact.The Murder Mystery Dinner was not only a wonderful fundraiser for the Banstead Rotary, but it also served as a fantastic opportunity for members and friends to come together and enjoy a night of good food, great company, and infectious laughter. The participants were treated to a tantalizing dinner at Cuddington Golf Club following the French theme of Coq au Vin and Tarte Tatin, which was a culinary delight in itself, setting the stage for an evening of mystery and intrigue.

President Jane Illingworth welcomed everyone to the event with a brief overview of Rotary. She also thanked John Draper for his 47 years of Rotary service and presented him with a Paul Harris Red Ruby Fellowship!

During the dinner a raffle and auction took place to which the attendees donated generously! As a result of this evening, and other fundraisers over the last 18 months Banstead Rotary has been able to donate £3,250 to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Clive Richardson of Epsom Rotary conducted the event as both detective and Murder Mystery host. As the mystery unfolded and the clues were revealed, the room was filled with laughter, suspense and a shared sense of enjoyment. It was evident that the Rotary Club members, along with their guests, had a great time piecing together the puzzle, all in the name of fun and charity. Events like the Murder Mystery Dinner remind us that Rotary isn't just about service and philanthropy; it's also about building connections, fostering friendships, and celebrating the spirit of togetherness. As the night came to a close, everyone left with memories to cherish and the satisfaction of knowing they had contributed to a worthy cause. We salute the The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity for their incredible work which was our reason for hosting this fantastic event, and we're grateful for the opportunity to join in the fun. It was a night filled with warmth, laughter, and a sense of community that will continue to resonate with us. Here's to more such endeavours and memorable moments in the future!
