Personal quest for new Sidmouth Round Table chair
PUBLISHED: 07:57 26 April 2012
THE new chairman of Sidmouth Round Table says he is looking forward to boosting deserving causes – and one particularly close to his heart.
Ben Tilbert’s first duty in his new role was to choose the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as a beneficiary of the group’s charity work in the next year.
His daughter, Sophie, 12, suffers from the condition.
Fencing contractor Ben, 35, said: “The charity is quite personal to me.”
Ben has been a member of the round table for six years.
He said the group would try to help causes in need if it could, adding: “That’s what we’re there for.”
