Society Supports Hereford Round Table Fundraisers

24 November 2014

Round Table Fundraising

The Society has made a donation of £500 to Hereford Round Table to help with a very exciting fundraising endeavour.

Hereford Round Table is a modern movement which aims to give young men a place to meet, make friends, and exchange ideas. The Round Table is non-religious and non-political, and has as much to offer men today as it did when it started in 1927. The Round Table is a vibrant movement whose 8,000 members meet regularly in 600 clubs around the UK to combine socialising with record-breaking fundraising and support for local communities.

On 27th November, members of Hereford Round Table will be spreading their wings and crossing the English Channel to visit some of their international colleagues in France. The event hopes to raise £6,000 for the local Table which will be distributed to local groups, funded by donations raised by each of the drivers.

The group intend to drive six Mini cars to six French Round Tables from the north-eastern tip down to the mid-south. When they arrive at each Table they will be delivering a small gift from home - a hamper containing local products from Herefordshire.

Hereford Round Table have raised over twenty thousand pounds for local charities in 2014 alone, and you can find out about their remarkable achievements here.

He commented: “The Hereford Table is thrilled to have received such a generous donation from the Society, and I look forward to wearing the squirrel logo with pride while driving through the beautiful French scenery. It’s only thanks to generous support such as this that the Round Table can continue to do so much good for our local communities. Merci beaucoup, Monmouthshire!”
