Mayor's Charity

In my second mayoral year I will continue to support our community, not only through fundraising but also by raising the profile of volunteer groups overall. My fundraising this year will be for young people, and so I have been talking to our Parent Teacher Associations, another hardworking group of volunteers, about potential projects that support health and wellbeing, or intergenerational activities; which will be of benefit to children at the schools both now and in the future; and which offer the opportunity for community involvement.

I’m delighted to say that three schools have suggested projects - a sensory garden and a daily mile and that they would dearly love some support with fundraising for.

I will be holding a number of events to raise funds, and at the end of the Civic Year, the funds will be divided equally between the participating PTAs.

I’m very grateful for the support that the Poynton community gave me during the last year, and sincerely I hope you will feel able to support me again.
