Give Something Back to Your Town
We organise fun events that bring the whole community together, then give the profits to local causes. Join Round Table and you will have fun, make lifelong friends and make a real difference to you and your community.
A big part of a Round Table Member's life is the opportunity to put something back, and for Carl Bradley, a property consultant who has been a member Yarborough Round Table for 17 years, the experience changed his life.
“I was invited by another member – Charlie Jackson – to go and meet Pat Wright, from the charity When You Wish Upon A Star.
“Pat was looking for help because she was organising a flight at Christmas from Humberside Airport to take 100 terminally ill children to Lapland to see Father Christmas.
“I was privileged to be invited on the trip as a helper. I have now been to Lapland 11 times and I am proud to have been part of the wonderful work the charity does. Yarborough continues to be a friend and supporter and over the years we have donated both money and time.
“What was effectively a chance meeting turned out to be a fantastic life experience for me. The team work and banter at events is what Round Table is all about -- it has helped me to develop new skills personally and, above all, the sense of achievement when 100 happy children return safely to Humberside each year is impossible to describe.”
Carl, who is now a director and trustee at When You Wish Upon a Star, knows that his journey as been as rewarding personally as it has for the 100 children who benefit from his work every year:
“If I wasn’t in Round Table I wouldn’t have been invited to that first meeting and would have missed out on something which has gone on to be a huge part of my life and also that of my family. A huge thanks - to Charlie, Pat and to Round Table.”
