The Ilfracombe Round Table have kindly sponsored Ilfra Expo, their contribution has made it possible to create a permanent public artwork by an international artist for Ilfracombe which has brightened up an underused area of Ilfracombe seafront. The artist Gethin Wyn Jones grew up in north Wales and has taken inspiration directly from his time spent growing up in the countryside.
The Round Table is a worldwide voluntary organisation of young men. They have thousands of members who meet up every couple of weeks around the UK to have fun and get involved in their local communities. Local clubs get together to do anything from paintballing and offroading, to a simple game of football or a night out at a comedy club. These evenings are the essence of Round Table – bringing together groups of friends.
Each local Round Table organises its own community and fundraising events. These vary from club to club, ranging from carnivals and bonfires for tens of thousands of people, to fun runs, beer festivals and barbecues. These funds are then distributed to worthy causes within the locality, to put something back and make a real difference.
