AGM

Our AGM tonight, what a great year we’ve had raising over £17,000 for charity, and giving out over £10,000 to local good causes so far. We’ve had some great times this year, and have lots more to look forward to along the way, with more charity events planned. This year we’ve inducted 3 new members, with 2 more to come, but sadly we say goodbye to 2 of our long serving members, and change over of Chairman.

Thanks to the outgoing Chairman Andrew Bingham for his year, and we welcome in our new Chairman, Jack O’Donnell. Also coming in as Vice Chairman, Ben Collins and our new President Ray Stocker. Thanks to our outgoing President Darren Barker.

Lots of awards handed out tonight, and a massive well done to our 2 marathon runners Rob and Darren. Big thanks to Area 6’s new Chairman Amrinder for coming along tonight, and Norwich’s Will Cason.

Lastly, thanks to everyone for all your support last year, and we look forward to seeing you at this years planed charity events. Thankyou from us all at Hunstanton and District Round Table.

Donation Time – Eboni

Today we presented young Eboni with a cheque for £4000, to bring her fundraising up to its total for the specialised wheelchair being made in Germany, to help Eboni have a better life. We are so pleased to be able to be a part of all the fundraisers that have helped Eboni to get her chair. Last year we did our charity car rally around the UK, in themed cars we brought, and raised the £4000 from doing it over 3 days. Pictured are Roundtable members presenting the cheque to Eboni and her mother Lisa, along with Hunstanton Saling clubs John Mathews.

Hunstonton Beach Clean

Great turn out for the beach clean today in Hunstanton. We were pleased to be part of it, along with over 50 other people who turned up to help. Lots of things cleared from the beach, from a silver Waste bin! To clothing, broken bottles, plastic containers, metal bars, and all sorts of general rubbish.

Well done to everyone that came along and a big well done to Sam Rutt of Barefoot SUP and Fitness for organising it, along with Hunstanton Water Sports, Hunstanton Kayaks and Hunstanton Saling Club.

Donation Time – Faye Evans

Our latest donation of £500 to Faye Evans, and her friend Sam Bromfield. We are really pleased to be able to help Faye get to her total.

On September 27th Faye will be flying out to Tanzania in Africa to trek for nine days to reach the summit of mount Kilimanjaro, to raise money for the MS Trust, a small charity supporting thousands of people in the UK, living with MS offering endless support, care and advice.

Faye said she is doing it as In 2015 her friend was diagnosed with MS, which has completely changed their lifestyle, and has sometimes made the little things in life far more difficult. “I’m always inspired by the positivity this person has had in dealing with the condition and so over the next 6 months I will be raising as much money, and awareness as I can to support such a great charity.”

If you wish to support Faye then you can follow click here to make a donation.

Donation Time – Hunstanton Beach Clean & Theresa’s Tiny Treasures

Today we made 2 of 5 donations planed for this week and next week.

The 1st of today’s was to Sam Rutt of Barefoot SUP and Fitness. If your a lover of the ocean and beach where we live, then please come and join everyone volunteering on the 1st of April with a community beach clean.

Hunstanton Round Table are backing Sam with her efforts, and we have donated money to assist with the buying of equipment for the beach clean in Hunstanton.

The event will form part of the Surfers Against Sewage Big Spring Beach Clean Campaign. Barefoot SUP are working alongside Steve Murfet of Hunstanton Water Sports, Les Collinson of Hunstanton Kayaks and Hunstanton Sailing Club as fellow campaigners for cleaner beaches.

Sam said, “We are going to meet and take a nice stroll along the beach, collecting anything we find, and then afterwards check in at Hunstanton Sailing Club for a well earned drink (the bar will be open). I really do hope you can come and join us to give something back to a beach we all love and enjoy”

If you are interested in joining the beach clean you can find the Facebook event here.

Our second donation today was to Theresa’s Tiny Treasures.

We have donate £1600 of equipment to help Theresa with a this fantastic charity that she has set up. Theresa started Theresa’s Tiny Treasures in October 2015, the ‘treasures’ being the keepsakes and items which she could offer families.

Theresa’s Tiny Treasures is a unique baby bereavement charity for Norfolk providing professional quality baby bereavement photography, hand and footprints onto ceramic, plaster castings of hands and feet, made with love clothing for all stages of baby loss, blankets, quilts, hand made cloth nappies for babies from 12 weeks of pregnancy to term, miscarriage baby clothing and keepsakes, burial gowns made from wedding dresses, handmade baby bracelets and angel charms, laser engraved stars including all siblings, extra sets of ink free footprints for grandparents and other family members, hand and footprints into sand for bigger babies which are made into glass plaques.

Also provided are sibling toys and a sibling library which includes books for all ages to explain the loss of a sibling and why Mummy had an angel instead of bringing home a baby.

Theresa said, “It’s an honour to be able to change a photo a little to make it more acceptable for a family to share with others, it’s makes such a difference to people.
Sadly miscarriage and stillbirth is still not a subject which most people talk about so fundraising is so hard. I’ve had many people asking me why I do what I do…. I say ‘because it is so very needed, there is no pain worse than losing a longed for baby.’ Thank you to Hunstanton Roundtable for donating, it will make such a difference to the charity.”
