Tipple has ripple effect

A SLEW of local charities will be substantially better off thanks to the the city's wine buffs.

The Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour raised in excess of $9000 from it's 13th Rotary Wine Enjoyment held at Pacific Bay on Saturday.

Supported by wineries from three states the tasting afternoon drew more than 180 sippers, slurpers and tipplers.

Rotary spokesman George Cecato said numbers keep increasing.

"Every year we are seeing more people come to our wine enjoyment day," Mr Cecato said.

"And that is great news for the local charities which are set to benefit."

Mr Cecato said the Local Salvation Army branch, the Soup Kitchen, PCYC, and Coffs Harbour Junior Surf Club were among the local beneficiaries set to receive donations from Rotary.
