Lewes Skittles

Hey all!
Quick question.
Who organises the Skittles event at the Southover Grange in Lewes each year?
I know the answer to this as I am part of the organisation that does organise it, but we want to see if others know who organises it WITHOUT looking it up on the internet!
So put your answers here.

I expect it's a bonfire society so they can raise more money to waste on buying bangers.

You do realise just how much money is raised by Rotary for local charities don't you, and rather than being old f4rts the age range is from 36 and up!

How does the Rotary Club work, do you go to meetings and are they in a pub?

Rotary works in two ways:
1/ RC (Rotary Club) Lewes do have weekly lunches at the White Hart (proper sit down meals - not a pie and a pint). Lewes also has RC Barbican who meet weekly in the morning at Shelleys and RC Castle meet weekly in the evening at the Constitutional Club.
2/ We raise money for charity through donations, putting on events like Skittles or the Christmas Tree of Goodwill, etc. Members donate a lot of their own time to events like Skittles (I was there from 6pm until 10:15pm every evening, except Thursday).
The money donated by visitors to the Skittles evenings is shared between Lewes Victoria Hospital and other local charities.
We also give money to regional, national and international charties and a lot of our work is done behind the scenes.
One example is the Tsunami. We were one of the first charities "on the scene" with shelter boxes (which are boxes with a tent and enough equipment to support ten people). Clubs throughout the UK raised over 1 million within a month of the tsunami!
Not such an old farts society is it!
