The Rotary Club of Gibraltar recently held a ploughman’s lunch fund-raising event in the Convent Cloisters. The afternoon was part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and Rotary thanks the Governor for his hospitality. The lunch was well attended by members of the public who enjoyed a lovely sunny day in beautiful surroundings with entertainment by popular local musician Wally.
Mr Pepe Rosado kindly provided guided tours of the King’s Chapel to those present. Pepe is well known for his wealth of information on the history of Gibraltar and in particular that of the Convent and the Chapel.
There were also a number of stalls. These included a bookstall from Childline, a selection of fabrics and items from Denville Designs, homemade cakes provided by Mrs Anne Nation, lamps kindly donated by the Governor’s wife, Lady Johns and a tombola to raise funds for the Water Barrels for Africa project.
