Cash from Glossop’s biggest annual fireworks display has lit up the lives of the people running some local good causes.

Hard working Glossop and District Round Table raised £20,000 from its spectacular bonfire in Manor Park and other events.

And every penny has gone to organisations that do so much for so many people, with £10,000 rocketing to Glossop Mountain Rescue Team.

As usual the ‘Tablers’ went out of their way to spread the cash amongst a variety of charities.

Buxton Air Cadets, which recruits members from throughout the High Peak, received £2,000.

Hollingworth Juniors Football Club also received a grant.

Gamesley’s G52, the group which stages community events for people of all ages, was also on the receiving end of a grant.

Also benefiting were Glossop Age Concern and local Scout and Guide associations.

Glossop and District Round Table are always looking for new members to help raise cash and have a good time socially.

Meetings are on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Prince of Wales pub, Milltown, Glossop.

Membership is open to men aged from 18 to 45 years old.
