We received the following letter in response to the food hampers we donated at Christmas:
We want to thank you very much for the box of food, also for the one last year. It was a lovely varied choice very gratefully received.
Once again thank you very much.

It’s always very humbling for us to receive thanks from the local community and to know our efforts make a difference where it counts.
It’s Christmas eve and most people will be out getting their last bits of shopping or perhaps out visiting family and friends, however for members of the Long Eaton Round Table it’s the last day of the Christmas collection. Today in the cold and rain we will be collecting at ASDA in Long Eaton, welcoming donations from the generous community, a community that has supported us through the last few weeks and welcomed Santa as he brought smiles and laughter to the local children, (and adults).
As well as collecting at weekends and in the evenings, Tablers have been working hard to put together 40 Christmas hampers filled with food and other items that were then delivered by LERT to the less fortunate in our local area. This is one of the prime examples of where the time and effort of the Long Eaton Round Table, coupled with the support and charitable donations of the local community, has helped to make a difference to those around us. It is with this thought that we would like to thank the Long Eaton community for their support this year, and we hope to continue to receive your support into the New Year.
Merry Christmas from The Long Eaton Round Table!
It’s that time of year again where Long Eaton Round Table will be taking Santa on his sleigh tour of Long Eaton and the surrounding area for Christmas 2012. The sleigh will be touring around town starting at 6pm each day handing out sweets for the children and season’s greetings to all.
Long Eaton Round Table is committed to raising money to go towards local charities and causes. All monies raised by the Christmas collection help us fulfill this commitment.
Whether you are young, or just young at heart, we would love to see you so please come to the window or the doorstep and give Santa and his helpers a wave!
Please see the Routes below to find when Santa will be visiting your local streets!

Merry Christmas to you all!
