Round Table give £2k to charity offering sport to the region’s disabled
Members of the Norwich Round Table have donated £2,000 to the Norfolk Special Olympics, in a cheque presentation that took place outside the pub named after the organisation’s founder, Louis Marchesi.
The Round Table is a charitable organisation of men aged 18 - 45, in the Norwich and Norfolk area.
It was formed in the city in 1927. The group used to hold their meetings in the pub when it was known as the ‘Louis Marchesi’, and are keen to re-establish their links following the renaming.
The fundraising followed an event in May which saw 100 international Round Table members gather in Norwich to celebrate the organisation’s 90th anniversary.
Companies involved in the fundraising included: Blackwater Property Developments, Digital Phone Company, Lovewell Blake, Fat Cat and Canary, Norfolk Brewhouse and Sonkai Jewellers.
