Round Table and Ladies Circle were delighted to be involved in BBC Children in Need 2017, and help raise a record breaking amount for children across the UK.
Round Table and Ladies Cirlce members were out and about across the UK on Friday 17th November collecting for BBC Children in Need. Starting out at 5:45am the guys were determined to raise a record breaking amount to help as many children in need as possible. A huge thank you to all those who donated across the London train stations, raising in excess of £20,000, those who donated at the Fishguard Round Table bridge toll booth, those who donated to Stirling and Bridge Round Table fundraising for Children in Need, those who said hello to Pudsey and the guys at Barry Round Table who were traveling to local businesses and schools throughout the day and every single person who dug deep and donated what they could spare!
Everyone had a brilliant day collecting for Children in Need. BBC Children in Need said "We are delighted to announce that our total so far is a record-breaking £50.1m during Friday's BBC Children in Need 2017 , which featured a Blue Peter Strictly Come Dancing special, a Weakest Link celebrity special, a singing EastEnders cast, and a teaser of the Doctor Who Christmas edition. The show also featured music from Katie Melua, the cast of Countryfile, Rita Ora, The Vamps and Jason Derulo, while Joanna Lumley presented the Sir Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year award for the second year."
The guys at Stirling Bridge and Allan Round Table were busy collecting at local train stations for Children in Need and had a brilliant day, and raised over £2,200!
Round Table and Ladies Circle are still counting up all the amazing donations and we will be announcing the final total very soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
