Thank you to everyone that came along or supported the first Weymouth and Portland Round Table event of 2022 at Bacaro Restaurant on Weymouth seafront last night
Over 50 people attended event, which included a luxury three-course meal, charity raffle and wine tasting hosted by St Austell Brewery, together raising over £1500 for good causes in Weymouth and Portland.
Table Chairman Adam Luckhurst said:
“The event was a huge success and a thoroughly enjoyable night. I would like to say a huge thank you to Shannon and her team at Bacaro for serving up a superb three course meal, and looking after everyone so well to James from St Austell Brewery for the fantastic wine tasting. And special thanks go to the 41 Club members and to everyone in the table that put the effort in to make the evening such a resounding success.”
“I’d like to also like to thank all the people and businesses that donated one of the 18 prizes for the charity raffle; which all helped us raise over £1500.”
Adam and Round Table Team are now busy planning more events for 2022 and beyond. These include a family fun run, celebrity speaker event and race night for 2022 with a signature community fundraising event in the planning for 2023.
The table re-established itself in 2019 after an absence of many years in the town, quickly signing-up new volunteer members and raising some £15,000 for good causes, despite fundraising efforts being curtailed by Covid.
2022 has seen the table expanded to include Portland, and will now be known as Weymouth and Portland Round Table. The move recognises the close bonds between the two communities, will bring benefits to both areas and give the table a strong voice locally.
The Round Table is a registered charity made up of committed volunteers that want to make a positive difference to the town. They bring with them varying backgrounds, trades, skills and talents with an ethos of loyalty, tradition and good will.
