I am really enjoying my time in table and it works well around my volunteering and work commitments.
James has been a member of Hastings Round Table for five years. James has experience in the charity sector and fundraising.
James is now a full time father of his two year old twins.
Table has been a fantastic way of meeting people who share similar interests as me. There's no greater feeling than calling someone and telling them we are donating much needed funds towards their cause. Table fits into my busy life around my kids and health.
Nick has been a member of the Round Table for 4 years. He has over the years supported various charity work through local initiatives and corporate work, which has help support both local and national charities. He is currently a Store Manager at Tesco and is married with two children.
Roundtable is an amazing organisation to be a part of and the work it does supporting local people and causes is very humbling. Sharing these experiences along the way with the team is another great positive you get from being in Table.
Paul has been a member of Hastings Round Table for nearly 6 years. He has over 20 years experience in the Retail and Leisure sectors. He is currently a Senior Gym Manager for PureGym and is a father of two.
Table is my way of giving back, I love knowing that our hard work and effort directly impacts local good causes. I have made so many friends along the way too.
Paul McCleery has been a member of Hastings Round Table for 3 years, he is 43 and married with two young girls and has been self employed as a Personal Fitness Trainer since 2009.
My professional job is to help people, joining the Round Table was another great way to help our local people in our community.
Joining in 2015, Peter is relatively new to Round Table, and at a ripe 40 he joined in the nick of time. When not tabling or charging around after his two young sons, he runs Hastings premier Decorators’ Merchant (Trade Paints), loves playing squash and either sails or day dreams of sailing.
I joined the Round Table to as I liked the idea of giving something back to society. Thankfully this fulfils the remit entirely, with a constant turn around of great causes being helped. I didn’t join to become friends with likeminded, kind and wholesome people, but it seems that’s inevitable! My advise, don’t put it off!
Steve is 39 years old and originally from Stoke-on-Trent. He moved to the South coast 12 years ago and settled in Hastings after living in Brighton and Eastbourne for a spell. In Eastbourne he met his wife Sophie and they now have 2 beautiful daughters, India & Autumn. Steve works in the drinks trade as a wine specialist for a local wine merchant and wholesaler.
I've been a member of Hastings 21 for 18 months but have been involved with the organisation for around 5 years as a supplier to Hastings Beer Festival. I have found Round Table to be thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding as well as great fun and a way to make new friends. It's also a great place to network and would highly recommend table for people looking to get involved.
My name is Shiva Hart, I have 2 lovely children and a beautiful wife. Born and bred in Hastings I have moved away a few times, but always moved back- I love it here! I have been in Round Table for over 3 years and been involved in 4 beer festivals. I work in Construction & Safety Management.
