The former Round-Table club has donated £500 to The Rainbow Centre to help them progress their endeavours in offering practical help to vulnerable people in the town’s local community.

Each year, the new Chairman of Scarborough 41 Club names his chosen charity to receive donations raised by the members during his year.

This year, the Club’s Chairman for 2021/22 David Ascough chose The Rainbow Centre for "their outstanding work in providing debt advice, food and clothing banks together with various other invaluable services to people in need including the homeless."
