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.

Lymm Round Table is holding a new members night on Friday February 26th, 8pm, at Lymm Village Hall.
The event will give the opportunity for those thinking about joining the Round Table to find out more, meet current members and enjoy some free food and the odd drink or two.
Membership officer Chris Gorman said: “Lymm Round Table is one of the most buoyant in the region with plenty of members who help to run our main events – the beer festival, duck race and bonfire – and also come down to the many social events we arrange.
“There’s always room for more though and this event will give guys the chance to see what we’re all about. There’s no obligation to join, but there’s certainly no harm in coming down to learn a bit more about the Round Table.”

Lymm and District Round Table’s fifth annual beer fest has been an event to savour once again – both for the ale-loving public and local charities.
Over £4,000 was raised in total, as many attended the two-day festival sponsored by Warrington based Urban Building Projects Ltd, specialists in domestic and commercial building. The many cask ales, ciders and perries on offer at Lymm Village Hall, along with food served up by Lymm Ladies Circle - who also raised £475, ensured a good time was had by all.
Richard Storey, who helped to organise the festival, said: “The emphasis this year was on quality local ales and they were certainly well-appreciated by those that attended. We seemed to get the quantity of casks on offer spot on so drinkers had a great selection to choose from right until the very end.
“The main outcome of course is the money raised for charity and I’m delighted we can send thousands the way of worthy causes once again.”

The Lymm Beer Festival is back for its fifth year and organisers Lymm and District Round Table are promising it will be bigger and better than ever.
This year’s charity event, once again sponsored by Warrington-based Urban Building Projects Limited, will take place on Friday 4th (6pm-11pm) and Saturday 5th (noon-11pm) September in Lymm Village Hall and over 38 cask ales will be on offer plus a selection of ciders, perrys, wine and even a craft lager! The Round Table team have tried hard to select as many breweries from the local area as possible, many of which will be unknown to ale lovers so the event is a real opportunity to try some different local brews.
There will also be live music throughout both days, food from the ladies circle and free soft drinks for non-drinkers. The entry fee is £5 evenings/£3 Saturday afternoon (discounts for CAMRA members) which includes a pint glass created specifically for the event. Families are welcome on the Saturday afternoon session and all cask ales and ciders are at one great price of £2.50 a pint.
Opportunities remain to sponsor a cask for £80 which will include a mention in the programme, at the event, on the festival’s website and Twitter and Facebook feeds. Sponsors will also receive four tickets to the event and £20 of beer tokens.
Lymm and District Round Table member and beer festival organiser Rich Storey said: “The beer festival is continuing to grow in success and we will be having more beers than ever before to satisfy thirsty drinkers. The ale selection this year has a big focus on brews from around the region but there'll still be space for some of the old favourites.”

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 inpiduals to donate to.
