Southend Round Table arrange two Southend events that help bring people together and raise much needed money that we pass right back to great causes all around the Borough. The two events are:
Big Beach Bang
The Big Beach Bang, a well run, family safe fireworks event for all of the family at Shoeburyness East Beach. Thousands of people come along to our professional display, have fun on the various rides and amusements and eat food at our certified stalls. The whole event is arranged, managed and run by volunteers and every single penny of the thousands that we raise goes right back into the community. Every single member loves the fireworks and the fact that we can give so much back. You can find out more about the event, buy tickets (when they're available) and even volunteer by visiting our special Big Beach Bang page
The Colourthon - an award winning event consisting of two fabulous walks around the sights and sounds of Southend-on-Sea on a wonderful summers eve. The Colourthon has supported more than 726 charities in it's 10 year history, raising over £1.24m in the process. The event is run by volunteers just like the Big Beach Bang, and every penny goes to the charities and local causes - find out more on our Colourthon page

Giving Grants or Donations
Southend Round Table can help you in your quest for raising funds - all of the money we collect at our events goes right back to local causes. We have given grants or donations for defibrillators, wheelchairs, minibuses, school kit, sports clothing, health treatments, special gardens, support for blind or deaf people, in fact, you name it, we have probably given funds towards it over our 80 year history.
All we need from you are some details of what you would like us to support, how much you would need and the difference it would make. We then consider it and respond as quickly as we can. We try and say yes, but do sometimes say no, but when we do , we try and offer other contacts or forms of advice to help you in your mission.
