Record Year For Lym Round Table

Posted by Chris on Sunday, 22 May 2016 at 06:22:58

Filed under: Events, Lymm, Charity, Fundraising

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.

New members night for Lymm Round Table

Filed under: Events, Lymm, Charity, Village centre

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.”

Round Table Bonfire to Light Up Lymm

Posted by Chris on Thursday, 22 October 2015 at 08:49:25

Filed under: Events, Lymm, Charity, Fundraising

The Lymm and District Round Table are fired up for their annual charity bonfire, which returns on Saturday November 7th.

This year’s event is once again sponsored by Kids Planet Day Nursery on Eagle Brow and held at Lymm Rugby Club on Crouchley Lane. It will feature a children’s fireworks display at 7pm and a main fireworks display at 7:45pm. The doors will open at 6pm with the bonfire lighting at 6:30pm.

“We raised a record amount for charity last year – a massive £13.5k – so there’s certainly lots to live up to!” said Gary Parsons, organiser and Round Table member. “The earlier bonfire lighting went down well last year so we’ve stuck to the same format this time around, plus there’ll be the customary rides and food stalls.”

Tickets will be on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the Saturday mornings preceding bonfire night. Advanced ticket prices are £12 for a family (up to two adults and two children), £6 for adults and £3 for children, while on the door charges are £15 for family, £7 adult and £3 child. 

For more information call Gary on 07968 771441 or email bonfire@lymmroundtable.co.uk

What a year for Lymm and District Round Table

Posted by Chris on Thursday, 28 May 2015 at 13:54:02

Filed under: Events, Lymm, Charity, Fundraising, Village centre

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 inpiduals 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.”

Filed under: Events, Lymm, Charity, Fundraising, Village centre

Lymm and District Round Table are holding a Charter Night to mark their 50thyear on Friday 20th February, 7:30pm, at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Lymm.

The fundraising group, which organises popular community events throughout the year including the Easter Monday Duck Race, Big Lymm Bonfire and Lymm Beer Fest, is inviting all former Table members to a night of hot food, a private bar and entertainment.

Current chairman Chris Gorman said: “This will be an informal evening where Table members past and present can share stories about the good old days and hopefully catch up with some forgotten faces.

“It would be good to see as many former Tablers there as possible – either from Lymm and District or further afield – plus if anyone has any memorabilia or old photos to add to the occasion that would be great too.”

Tickets are priced at £10 and to book your spot or find out more call Chris Stephens on 01925 759699 (evenings) or email charter@lymmroundtable.co.uk
