A GENEROUS donation of £200 from the Dunmow Round Table will help ensure that a forthcoming community event runs smoothly.
Uttlesford Community Travel (UCT) was delighted to receive the contribution, which will be put towards their evening of light entertainment event in the Foakes Hall in Dunmow next Friday (September 7).
Steve Biddlecombe, one of the UCT trustees, said: "This year marks the 10th anniversary of Uttlesford Community Travel.
"This vital service, which gives eligible residents of Uttlesford the ability to travel around the district at an affordable cost, came into being in March 1997.

"In those 10 years it has allowed residents of Uttlesford who are over 60, or disabled, or rurally isolated, to become members, giving them the mobility to make medical appointments, go shopping or visit friends.
"We now run a total of eight vehicles of various sizes to accommodate individuals or groups and the disabled.
