Project wanted as Table look to muck in
The local organisation, who have just won a national Round Table Community Service award for their work with blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan, are now looking to use their muscle and DIY skills!
Joining Round Tablers, who have donated more than £20,000 to local groups in the past three years, will be Moseley Ladies Circle as the two groups join forces to build, dig, paint…or do whatever they physically can to aid a local community group complete a project that will provide a significant impact.
The initiative is being driven by husband and wife team Mark and Anna Ingram, who have both taken over the office of chairman of their respective organisations.
Mark said: “Over the last two or three years we have given away considerable sums of money to help a number of groups across Moseley, Kings Heath and the surrounding areas.
“But Round Table and Ladies Circle also donate their time and effort to the community, having supported Moseley Civic Society’s Dovecote project in recent times, while in May we were behind a donor drive in partnership with Anthony Nolan and Aston Villa, for which we were recognised by our national association.
“This is about giving something back to the community and we hope that plenty of groups, charities and organisations come forward to provide us with a range of opportunities.”
Steve McCabe, local MP, said: “Moseley Round Table is an excellent organisation and I am sure that by joining forces with Moseley Ladies Circle they will make a real difference to any community project.
“This is a great example of how local organisations and groups can work together to help improve their local communities.”
Any group seeking to benefit from upwards of 20 men and women coming to their aid later in the year is being urged to submit their request by July 31 for consideration.
Each applicant should provide details about themselves and their role in the community, a full outline of the project (including what work has been done to date – if any), what impact it will have and what tasks they require from Tablers and Circlers.
The date of the work will be mutually agreed but is expected to be carried out in September or October.
