Thank you Bury St Edmunds Round Table for donating £500 to St Nicholas' Hospice

Each year in November, the Bury St Edmunds Round Table organise a fantastic Fireworks extravaganza in the Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds to raise money for local charities (the 2009 event will be on Saturday November 07, 2009). As reported on a previous blog entry in January, I was delighted to have been selected as one of the recipients of £500 funding from the 2008 event for swimming the channel twice. I have today, March 30th, 2009 paid this to St. Nicholas' Hospice, one of my chosen channel swim charities.

If you live or work in or near Bury St Edmunds, and are male aged between 18 and 45, Round Table is a fantastic way to make new friends, do things you might not normally do, and raise funds for charity. They are always looking for new members. If you are interested in joining, then please contact them via their website at

I would just like to say a huge thank you to them, for being so generous to me.
