LYMM and District Round Table has raised a record amount for charity this year with over £20,000 donated to worthy causes.
The extraordinary total was raised from the proceeds of the Round Table’s main events throughout 2014/15 – the Beer Fest, Big Lymm Bonfire and Duck Race – and dwarfs the amount raised in previous years.
Outgoing chairman Chris Gorman said: “It’s been a hugely successful year and my thanks goes out to all our members who have given up their spare time to organise and deliver the events, plus the local community which has been as supportive as ever.
“Thanks to them we have been able to donate thousands of pounds to a number of worthy causes in Lymm and the surrounding area.”
The Round Table will be hoping for more of the same in 2015/16 and are already seeking charities, community groups and individuals to donate to.
New chairman Graham Gowland said: “Helping those in need is what the Round Table is all about and we are actively encouraging people to step forward and request a donation. We have appointed our very first charity officer this year in Tim Oakley who will be co-ordinating our donations and ensuring the proceeds of our event goes out to those who need it the most.”
