10 Years of Circle Events

This week we celebrated 10 years of Circle Social Events.

Although Circle was incorporated as an Organisation on the 12th June 2012, which we class as our Birthday, it wasn't until November of that year we started to organise social events. The 1st ever Circle Social Event took place at on the evening of the 6th of November 2012. The event took place at the Olde Boars Head in Middleton with a handful of curious attendees coming along to see what 'Circle' was about. On Sunday, 10 years to the day of that original event we returned for a sold out Lunch at the Olde Boars Head to mark this landmark occasion. We were fortunate to have two of the original attendees from that event joining us again where we presented Alan & Joan  At major landmarks like this we like to reflect on the journey Circle has undertaken. Originally part of a larger organisation we have been fully independent for around 8 years now. We took some of the ideas from the original Circle concept and developed and add to them to build the success that HMR Circle and the wider Circle family has become. Here is the Circle story in numbers:- Total Number of Events Organised since that first event back in 2012: 6,774  Total number of different attendees who have attended a Circle event: 2,512  Total number of people who have been to a Circle Social Event or had a Practical job completed by Circle 2,815  Combined attendance to all the Circle Social Events 56,081 Total Practical or Digital Support Jobs completed 6,511 Total number of different people who have used the Practical and/or Digital Service 704 Total Number of Transport Requests for the HMR Circle Volunteer Drivers Service 31,590 Total Number of people who have used the HMR Circle Volunteer Drivers Service 1,668 Total Number of miles driven by the HMR Circle Volunteer Drivers Service 378,790
