Our Involvement in Colchester Carnival
In 2011, Colchester Round Table re-introduced Colchester Carnival following a number of years when the event had not taken place. Colchester Circle were proud to be joint organisers with Colchester Round Table from 2011-2016.
Both Colchester Ladies Circle and Colchester Round Table volunteered to run the event in their own free time and donated any proceeds to local good causes and charities. Members of Ladies Circle have been responsible for a number of roles over the years and greatly enjoyed the opportunity to work alongside Round Table in bringing a community event to the town.
In 2016 the event changed in format to be a street procession only and was a great success making a profit of £8,340 after all expenses. The proceeds were donated to 2 nominated charities – the Haven Project and the Robin Cancer Trust. Each good cause received £4,170.
