An important part of what we do in Round Table is our fundraising and charitable activities. In Sandbach we have three main fundraising events every year – the Hog Roast, Beer Festival and the Santa Float. We also take part charity challenges from time to time. In 2013 we all took part in the 3 peaks challenge to raise money for Sparks, Manchester Eye Hospital and the Sandbach Talking Newspaper.

In 2013 we gave an amazing £16,000 to local charities through our various fundraising events. In 2011 these events raised over £9,000 and in 2012 we donated over £6,000.

Hog Roast 2011Sandbach Round Table is a registered charity and we are regulated by the Charities Commission.

The focus and emphasis is on raising money or providing a service to our local community.

In this way, the FUN had during an event with your fellow Tablers becomes a direct benefit to our local community.

Because of this fact, we are PROUD to wear our Round Table badge.
