Round Table keen to lure new blood

HUCKNALL ROUND TABLE is already gearing up for 2012 — by opening its doors to new members in the run-up to the busy Christmas season.

As men across England put away the barbeques and fishing rods, the organisation is firing up a recruitment drive to give locals a new way to spend the winter months.

Whether they are working to raise cash for the upcoming BBC TV Children In Need appeal or simply arranging a seriously big Christmas party, Round Tablers know how to brighten up those long dark days.

Jason Thomson, vice-president of Hucknall Round Table, said: “With children back at school and adults returning to work after the holidays, history shows that men typically look for new social activities during the winter.

“We’re kicking off our recruitment drive early to combat the lower temperatures and shorter days scuppering the after-work plans of many blokes.”

Round Table offers a wide range of social and sporting activities, often on week nights, such as go-karting, abseiling, shooting and tractor racing.

To make it easier for men to find out more about getting involved with their local Table, the organisation has also released a dedicated new members’ contact, join@roundtable.co.uk.

Jason continued: “Round Table is all about providing a fun and relaxed environment where men from all walks of life can socialise and get involved in a huge range of team activities and trips.

“We’re inviting anyone who’s interested in joining to go along to their local Table and see what it’s all about. The more, the merrier!”

Hucknall Round Table, which meets regularly at various local venues, is now finalising preparations for its most successful fundraising initiative — the annual Santa’s Sleigh run. This visits several locations around the Dispatch district and raises thousands of pounds every Christmas for good causes.
