THE Lymm and District Round Table has raised a record amount for charity this year with £10,000 donated to local causes.
The impressive total was raised from the proceeds of the Round Table’s main events throughout 2010/11 – the Lymm Duck Race, Big Lymm Bonfire and Burns Night – in addition to ‘Movember’, a worldwide initiative that raises vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
New chairman Chris Stephens said: “All our events this year have been really well attended by the public and local businesses and traders have also provided valuable support. Combined with all the hard work our members have put in it’s no real surprise that we’ve managed to raise as much as we have.
“There’s a real buzz about the Lymm and District Round Table with a rapidly growing membership and next year promises to be better still with a few new events, such as Lymm’s first charity beer festival, added to the mix.”
The local causes to have benefited from the Round Table’s donations include Thelwall and Stockton Health Scouts, STEPS charity, Ravenbank Primary School, Wollston Playgroup and Cheshire Search and Rescue.
The Lymm and District Round Table is one of the most buoyant in the country with a large and enthusiastic membership and regular social and charity events planned throughout the year.
