Sumo suits, sponge throwing and archery were just some of the attractions at the successful Round Table Fun Day at the Marches Marquee.

The recent fun day out was organised by Paul Sinclair of Linlithgow Round Table and drew in the crowds, raising funds for local good causes.

Around £2500 was made from the bumper day, and the Round Table were delighted with the day.

Laurie Boles of the Round Table said: “It was the busiest for many a year and one where everyone benefited from. All organisations involved raised valuable funds for their good causes.

“The aim of the Fun Day is for us to give something back to the community, especially the kids, and say thanks for all their help in fundraising during the year. This year, we tried to incorporate a few new things like the Sumo Suits wrestling (which was very popular) and the Falconry. Our old favourites such as the assault course and other inflatables were there too and well used. In is a good promoter for Round Table and what we stand for.”

The baking stall alone generated around £170 and thanks were expressed to all the expert bakers who donated.

There were also races, a magician and an assault course to entertain children and adults alike.

Organiser Paul Sinclair added: “It was all in all a great day and a great success. The Fun Day never has been a big generator of profit, but what it does do is promote the Round Table, helps the various charities and organisations generate their own income, and of course gives cash to the local youth teams who take part.”

The Round Table thanked Linlithgow Rugby Club and Linlithgow Civic Festival Committee for use of the site and the marquee, as the Fun Day would never happed without this, and they also expressed their appreciation to all the organisations who provided stalls and helped with the running of the event.
