Each year Harleston and District Round Table raise money to support local good causes and Charities, the majority of this money is raised from the Santa Sleigh nights in Harleston and from our food stall at the Christmas lights switch on. So please continue your invaluable support when you see us again this year in the run up to Christmas, without your generous support we would not be able to help the people we do.
