Who we are
Farnham Round Table organise community events, raise money for charity, go on exciting socials, and have enormous fun doing it. Read on to find out more, and get in touch if you want to join us!
What we do
Farnham Round Table is a social and charitable organisation for men between 18 and 45 years old. We organise the Farnham Town Fireworks, the Farnham Charity Bike Ride, and run multiple Santa’s Sleigh routes each year. We also run ad hoc events to raise money, such as carolling at the station, and selling Christmas Trees.
The money we raise from these events gets donated to local good causes. For example: schools (books, resources, SEND facilities, etc…); charities like Space2Grow, Farnham Community Farm, and the town COVID-19 fund; sports clubs (goal posts, kit, etc…); food banks; and one off donations for causes we are approached about or are dear to our members’ hearts.
Every year we give away tens of thousands of pounds and it gives us a nice warm glow!
We meet twice a month (well, every other Wednesday), usually in a pub in town, to organise and plan the events, and to vote on how best to donate the money we raise. We also go on social events throughout the year. Recent examples are rifle shooting at Bisley; a self-hosted darts tournament; a tour of the Hogs Back Brewery; a family camping trip; and a curry night. Future plans include a coach trip to Bournemouth beach; cricket at the Rose Bowl; indoor wall climbing; and a foraging course.
If you want to know more about what we do, or want to join in, please do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you. You are always welcome to join one of our meetings, where you will be bought a beer or two, and will get a flavour of what it takes to organise our events, and how we distribute the money we raise to local good causes.
You can also contact various members of the committee using the contact us page.
Lots of us were new to the area when we joined and it is a good way to make friends from all walks of life with a similar attitude. If you are a local businessman there is also a really good chance to network too.
