Record year for Round Table

THE Lymm and District Round Table has donated a record amount for charity this year with almost £25,000 making its way to local causes.

The impressive total was raised from the proceeds of the Round Table’s three main events – the Easter Duck Race, Big Lymm Bonfire and Lymm Beer Fest.

Outgoing chairman Graham Gowland, who has also recently become a Lymm Parish Councillor, said: “It’s been a great year for Lymm and District Round Table – we’ve grown in numbers, with 26 active members helping to raise and donate such a vast amount to local good causes in the last year alone.

“We couldn’t do this without the support of local businesses, and of course the public coming to our fundraising events. I look forward to handing over the reins to our new chairman, Ian Newhouse, who I’m sure will continue to adopt, adapt and improve what we do. It’s certainly been a great year getting to know, through their support, some of the amazing local organisations that make Lymm and district such a great place to live.”

The causes to have benefited from the Round Table’s donations include Action for Sick Children, CAFT, Walton Lea Partnership, Wolves Foundation, Express Arts Youth Theatre, Contact the Elderly and the Mid-Cheshire Samaritans.
