Four-club family members Ash Gardner (Beeston Round Table, Nottingham) and Emily Gardner (Long Eaton Ladies Circle) have taken on an exceptional challenge to raise funds for Ukraine.
They departed from Round Table Britain & Ireland HQ in Birmingham at 6am on Thursday 10th March, walking 120 miles to the Ukrainian Embassy in London, finishing on Sunday 13th March.
Their aim was to raise £9,500 for Ukraine relief as part of Round Table’s 95th year in which the leading young man’s organisation has pledged to raise £95,000 for this cause. At the time of writing, over £14,000 had been raised. A fantastic achievement by all.
All the money raised will be sent to Round Table Germany to support their humanitarian relief efforts for Ukrainian civilians.
