Inserting new rows to a table then pasting a range into the new rows

I'm trying to add rows to a table and then copy the data into it. I had perfected the art of copy the data into the spreadsheet but as I have graphs etc running off the table I lose all the data in my charts - is there an easy way to add rows and then paste into the rows I've just added?
I can add the rows but then it doesn't paste the data in. - all code is below:

Initial VBA that runs through the list of values to be copied:
VBA Code:
Sub CreateSandbox()
       Dim rngData As Range, cell As Range
       Dim RoughCut As Worksheet, ProjectList As Worksheet
      Dim Sandbox As Worksheet
       Set RoughCut = Worksheets("Rough Cut")
       Set ProjectList = Worksheets("Project Data (G)")
       Set Sandbox = Worksheets("Sandbox")
' Clear the existing table
 Sandbox.ListObjects("Table2").Range.AutoFilter Field:=3
    Sandbox.Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp

       'size range data in Project list
       With ProjectList
        Set rngData = .Range(.Range("A4"), .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
       End With
      ' Establish "For" loop.
      For Each cell In rngData.Cells
         If cell.Value = "Yes" Then
            'If the value in the first cell of the row is Yes then
            'paste the value into the Rough Cut worksheet in cell V4
            RoughCut.Range("V2").Value = cell.Offset(0, 1).Value
          Call UpdateSandbox
          End If
      Next cell

   End Sub

This code copies the data across to the table
VBA Code:
Sub UpdateSandbox()
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  Dim copySheet As Worksheet
  Dim pasteSheet As Worksheet
 Set copySheet = Worksheets("Rough Cut")
  Set pasteSheet = Worksheets("Sandbox")
  Set Destination = pasteSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(13, 0) ' I've inserted 13 rows so logic says to paste in 13 rows before the first empty cell
  Set WksPlanned = Destination.Offset(0, 9)
  Set Totals = Destination.Offset(12, 18)

Application.CutCopyMode = False
 Call insertrows
Destination.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats
  Destination.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues
  WksPlanned.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulas
  WksPlanned.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats
  Totals.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulas
  pasteSheet.Cells.RowHeight = 11.25
   pasteSheet.Rows("7:18").EntireRow.Hidden = True
   pasteSheet.Rows("1:2").EntireRow.Hidden = True

  Application.CutCopyMode = False
  Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

This code inserts the rows into the table
VBA Code:
Sub insertrows()
 'Declare Variables
    Dim oSheetName As Worksheet
    Dim sTableName As String
    Dim loTable As ListObject
    Dim iCnt As Integer
    'Define Variable
    sTableName = "Table2"
    'Define WorkSheet object
    Set oSheetName = Sheets("Sandbox")
    'Define Table Object
    Set loTable = oSheetName.ListObjects(sTableName)
    For iCnt = 1 To 13 'You can change based on your requirement
        'Add multiple rows to the table
End Sub
