Hitchin Round Table has been successfully raising money for local good causes since 1948; our fund raising is primarily through the Christmas Collections and the mulled wine stall. We also get a third of the profit from Hitchin Beer and Cider Festival, this money goes into the running of Hitchin Round Table, and we allocate a proportion to local charities (decided in our business meeting).
In 2017 we have donated funds raised to:
- Tilehouse Counselling
- Hertfordshire Independent Living Services
- Angels Support
- Hitchin Partnership
- Hitchin Samaritans
- Garden House Hospice
A group of us also rode over 100 miles from Hitchin to Brighton in 2017, and raised over £7,000 for the mens mental heath charity CALM.
Raising money for local causes is part of what we are about, we all are happy to spend our time to give back to the local community.
