Have you brought the chequie my little turtle-dove? Folkestone have!

Now you know that I (and other high-minded Rotary p.r. and presstarians (new word – I like it!)) go on about Rotary pix with the large format cheque being supported by three or four pumped-up Rotarians.  And yes, sorry folks this is a classic of the genre.

But they have a slight excuse……..  not only is the cheque rather large physically, but it also has quite a lot of noughts on it.   How much did your club raise last year?    £10, thou?,  mmm, that’s fairly average/  How about nearly £20, thou?  Well people you have really worked hard this year, and what the Polio hunger lunch – oops, I mean frugal meal raised £450, that’s really good.

I shall not keep you lot in suspense any longer,  RC Folkestone, with their Ninth Half Marathon have raised from this one event –  (pause for deep intake of breath)   over Forty thousand pounds.

folkestone - half marathon cheque - 22.12.14

And the headline?  Enthusiasts for the musical theatre will know it is a quote from the show/film of ‘The Producers’.  It is about two shyster theatre producers who, by accident have a huge hit.  It is very funny, and, if you are running out of gift ideas this Christmas, you could do worse than the DVD.

Perhaps the RC Folkestone Benevolent fund might lend you the money!

Joking apart, terrific effort, this makes over £280,000 since the inception of the project.  Oh, and by the way can I know the names of those in the picture?  I would like them to have credit too.  Thank you Ray.       FH 22.12.14
